US just approved its largest ever solar project
The Trump administration has just approved an estimated $1 billion Gemini Solar Project that is all set to be the country’s largest solar project ever with a capacity of 690-MW.
U.S. Secretary of the Interior David L. Bernhardt signed the Record of Decision (ROD) for Solar Partners XI to construct this solar project and ancillary facilities about 30 miles northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada.
This could be the eighth-largest solar power facility in the world when finished and is expected to generate enough electricity to power 260,000 homes in the Las Vegas area and potential energy markets in Southern California.
“As our economy rebounds from the invisible enemy, President Trump is working to make the United States stronger than ever before. Our economic resurgence will rely on getting America back to work, and this project delivers on that objective,” said Secretary Bernhardt.
