Skylar Resources LP has acquired 100% interest in the option rights to develop the 180 MW Townsite photovoltaic project in Boulder City, Nev., from KOWEPO America.
The Townsite project, located 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas, is fully permitted and has interconnection rights at a Mead substation less than three miles from the site. The facility is expected to produce 350 GWh of electricity per year.
Through the acquisition, Skylar takes over the large generator interconnection agreement with the Western Area Power Administration. Skylar also acquired an agreement with Western that enables Townsite power to reach customers in the California Independent Service Operator, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power balancing authority, NV Energy territory, and other regions served by rights holders at the Mead 230 kV station.
Skylar says it is in discussions with several developers and environmental, procurement and constructionÂ firms to complete the project. Skylar currently has a 25-year power purchase agreement with Glendale Water & Power in California for 50 MW of Townsite's capacity.
