A subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, Mountain View Solar, has begun commercial operation of its 20MW Mountain View Solar Energy Project. The project, located in the Mountain View Industrial Park in North Las Vegas, will provide electricity to NV Energy customers under a long-term power purchase agreement. 

The facility covers 146 acres and consists of approximately 84,000 individual PV modules installed on ground-mounted arrays. Development on the Mountain View Solar Project began in 2010, and initial project construction started in early June 2013. According to NextEra, during peak construction in the summer of 2013, approximately 115 workers were onsite and more than 40 Nevada businesses were contributing to the project.

“We are proud to be a part of an initiative that not only supports NV Energy’s renewable energy supply, but has also helped to power Clark County’s local economy,” said NextEra Energy Resources President and Chief Executive Officer, Armando Pimentel. “Reaching this important project milestone would not have been possible without the cooperation and hard work of all of our project partners.”
