Partner Profile
The City of Las Vegas Sustainability Energy Strategy was adopted in part to develop the City’s renewable energy portfolio, reduce carbon emissions, and reduce overall utility costs. The City currently utilizes 3.3 megawatts of solar photovoltaic at its wastewater treatment plant. This single axis tracking system offsets 20 percent of the electricity needs of the facility, and a full six percent of the City’s total energy use. In addition to its solar plant, the City has increased its total installed capacity to 6.2 megawatts of solar for its City operations at 37 buildings, community centers, fire stations, and parks. Its newest green power site, a 40 kW solar covered parking lot at a community park, is expected to be operational in early 2016. Finally, in November 2015, the City announced that beginning in 2017, the City, through a Renewable Energy Agreement with the NV Energy, will receive energy produced by a solar facility under development near Boulder City (Boulder Solar I), coupled with power from NV Energy that already satisfies Nevada’s renewable portfolio standard allowing 100 percent of the City’s retail load to be served by renewable energy.
