Greenlink Nevada is comprised of two distinct transmission line segments that, once completed, will allow access to and future development of Nevada's renewable energy resources, will increase electric reliability for Nevadans and will position Nevada as an energy leader in the western U.S. The project will also provide the infrastructure needed to support the growth of new and expanding businesses in Nevada from west Henderson to Apex in North Las Vegas to Innovation Park outside of Reno.
Greenlink North, the first major segment, will be a 525 kV line that spans approximately 235 miles from Ely, NV to Yerington, NV. Greenlink West, the second major segment, will be a 351 mile, 525 kV line from Las Vegas, NV to Yerington, NV. Greenlink Nevada will also include three 345 kV lines from Yerington, NV to the Reno and Innovation Park areas to support new economic development. Greenlink Nevada is subject to the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada approval.
NV Energy also announced three new solar plus storage projects which will be built in southern Nevada and come online in 2023:
EDFR integrates siloed data streams from multiple turbine technologies, fitted with different condition monitoring system (CMS) hardware and other relevant data stream inputs. Onyx will combine these data streams into a cloud-based solution that allows wind turbine monitoring on a series of dashboards enabling transparency and more streamlined processes.
As part of the technology rollout, several large wind farms will be fitted with ecoCMS, Onyx InSight's advanced sensing technology that collects triaxial acceleration and temperature data for expanded coverage of the turbine drivetrain.
In parallel with the predictive maintenance implementation, the companies have also entered into an engineering services agreement whereby Onyx InSight will provide additional resources for improving turbine operations.

The most recent award was the 232 MW Milligan project, located in Milligan County, Neb. For the project, Siemens will build 30 SG 4.5-145 and 36 SG 2.7-129 wind turbines. The 4.5-145 features a 71 meter or 233-foot long blade. With these recent orders, Siemens Gamesa eclipsed the 1-gigawatt mark for its SG 4.5-145 turbines sold worldwide. The other new projects are the 241 MW Coyote wind project in Texas, and 246 MW Oso Grande wind project in New Mexico. Coyote, located in Scurry County, Texas, will feature 48 SG 4.5-145 and 11 SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines. Project completion is targeted for the summer of 2020.
The Oso Grande wind project will also utilize 48 SG 4.5-145 and 13 SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines. Located about 43 miles southeast of Roswell, N.M., commissioning of this wind farm is slated for Q4, 2020.
The SG 4.5-145 offers a flexible power rating, from 4.2 to 4.8 MW, depending on site conditions, the company stated in a release. It is optimized for medium wind onshore locations to maximize energy production with low noise emission levels.

The San Diego Zoo will leverage EDF Renewables' performance-based contract whereby EDF is paid based on the actual utility bill savings realized by the Zoo as a result of the battery operation. Accordingly, the Zoo has no fixed payments and bears no performance risk on the operation of the system. The battery solution also acts as a hedge against rising utility rates.
EDF Renewables North America delivers grid-scale power:on and offshore wind and solar energy storage projects; distributed solutions: solar, solar+storage; EV charging and energy management; and other commercial skills and services.
