New Solar Facility to Generate Major Power for City

New Solar Facility to Generate Major Power for City

As much as 20 percent of a local pollution control facility’s power needs will be met by a new solar power project.

Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, City Manager Betsy Fretwell and others will flip a switch to signify that the 15,000 ground-mounted solar panels on Vegas Valley Drive in the east valley are now generating power from the sun.

The panels are expected to generate approximately 6 million kilowatt-hours of energy annually, which will power up to 20 percent of the electrical needs of the nearby Water Pollution Control Facility (WPCF). This is equal to the amount of energy needed to power 300 homes annually.

Officials said energy savings at the WPCF, the city’s primary location to treat approximately 45 million gallons of wastewater per day, are important because it accounts for about a third of the city’s total power bill. The rest is divided between streetlights/signals and city buildings.
