The 150-MW Dry Lake solar project will be located 20 miles northeast of Las Vegas in a designated federal solar energy zone. It includes a battery storage system capable of storing 400 MWh and delivering 100 MW for a 4-hour period. The Dry Lake facility is one of three NV Energy’s recently approved solar..
The solar and battery project is being executed as two separate engineering, procurement and construction contracts. Stanley Consultants will assist NV Energy in reviewing the environmental permitting and photovoltaic and battery storage design, as well as monitoring the project during construction, commissioning and performance testing.
“We look forward to contributing professional services to NV Energy on this project and building upon our growing renewable energy practice,” said Chris DePodesta, renewable energy practice lead for Stanley Consultants. “Together with our clients we are working towards achieving sustainability, resiliency and carbon reduction goals using all the technology at our disposal.”
Stanley Consultants has also partnered with two sub-consultants: ArcVera Renewables, which will be providing renewable technology and testing expertise; and BEC Environmental, a Las Vegas firm that will support the Stanley Consultants environmental team.
In addition to home office support, Stanley Consultants will provide construction management oversight and onsite support, including commissioning and testing.
