The Moapa Southern Paiute Solar Project is the first of four planned by First Solar in partnership with tribes in the Las Vegas area.
The new plant represents the 14th solar energy resource serving Nevada’s customers under the utility’s purview.
In a filing with the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada, the state’s primary utility says the cost savings were meant to apply to a broader set of customers and shouldn’t be limited to support future solar customers’ net-metering needs.
The 70 MW system is just one aspect of the plant’s commitment to 100% sustainability – but the company says it will be seven-times larger than the largest rooftop solar system currently installed.
The factory is producing lithium-ion batteries both for Tesla’s energy storage products and electric vehicles
In contrast to phony allegations of a cost shift, Public Utilities Commission of Nevada found that net metered-solar is saving other customers money.
