NextEra Energy Resources unit Mountain View Solar began commercial operation of its 20 MW Mountain View Solar Energy Project.
The solar photovoltaic (PV) project is located on nearly 146 acres in the Mountain View Industrial Park in the city of North Las Vegas. All of the power generated by the Mountain View Solar Project is being provided to NV Energy customers under a long-term power purchase agreement.
The facility consists of about 84,000 individual PV modules installed on ground-mounted arrays. Development on the Mountain View Solar Project began in 2010. Initial project construction started in early June 2013.
During peak construction in the summer of 2013, about 115 workers were onsite and more than 40 Nevada businesses were contributing to the project through services including materials, equipment, utilities, labor, and food and beverage.
