110 MEGAWATTS (MW)

NV Energy purchases 100% of the electricity produced under a 25-year contract, and uses this electricity for distribution to its customers in the state of Nevada during peak demand periods

0 FOSSIL FUEL

0 EMISSIONS

Storage enables the plant to operate just like a conventional fossil fuel or nuclear power plant, reliably generating electricity day and night – except without any emissions or hazardous waste
