Arevon Energy has announced the completion of its Eagle Shadow Mountain Solar Plant. Located on the Moapa River Indian Reservation in Clark County, Nevada, the 300-MW project is expected to generate more than 900,000 MWh of clean electricity per year.
NV Energy entered into a long-term power purchase agreement for the output of Eagle Shadow Mountain to help serve its 44,000 square-mile territory and 2.4 million customers.
The Eagle Shadow Mountain Solar Plant is a significant achievement in Arevon’s renewable energy portfolio. Despite the persistent difficulties posed by the global supply chain crisis, economic uncertainty and COVID-19, Arevon’s resilience allowed it to deliver on its commitment to provide safe, renewable energy to Nevada residents.
“Amid worldwide supply chain constraints, Arevon’s talented team persevered to deliver an exceptional new source of clean energy to Nevada,” said Justin Johnson, Arevon’s chief operating officer. “Completion of the Eagle Shadow Mountain Solar Farm is a major milestone, and we are grateful to the Moapa Band of Paiutes for their contribution to make it happen.”
As with previous projects in the area, Arevon relied heavily on the rich talent pool provided by the Moapa Band of Paiutes to both build and operate the solar plant. The Eagle Shadow Mountain Solar Plant has 10 full-time employees and created an estimated 655 new jobs during the construction period.
In addition to Arevon’s commitment to using local labor for construction, Arevon collected Thanksgiving meals and hosted a holiday toy drive to collect Christmas gifts for the families of the Moapa River Indian Reservation.
