NV Energy
Date: 2019-10-07
In the Silver State, Las Vegas-based NV Energy, the state's largest utility reports it is terminating its power contract with Santa Monica-based commercial-scale solar specialist SolarReserve's $1 billion, 110-MW Crescent Dunes Solar facility in Tonopah, Nevada on the grounds that the facility "failed to produce" the required amount of energy, according to a lawsuit filed on Wednesday.

NV Energy notified the plant of the termination in June. NV Energy's grace period after defaulting on the contract ended Thursday, 3rd Oct. The lawsuit was filed in court on Wed., 2nd Oct.

In June, NV Energy announced it was seeking to build about 1,200 mw of solar generation and nearly 600 mw of battery storage.
