The United States gave the green light to the construction of its largest solar power project. The project consists of 690 MW solar capacity and 380 MW battery storage. The project has been named the Gemini project. The battery solution can deploy more than 1,400 MWh when required by the grid.
The Gemini project surpassed its closest rival, a 579 MW solar farm in southern California that currently holds the record for the largest solar array in the United States. The project will be built on close to 7,100 acres of land near Las Vegas and south of the Moapa River Indian Reservation in Clark County, Nevada.
The project will be constructed in 2 phases with the first phase expected to come online in 2021 and the second in 2022. Arevia Power and Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners are developing the project through Solar Partners XI, LLC that received Record of Decision (ROD) from the US Department of the Interior and Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
