Thursday, Mar 26 2015
SunPower's 137-acre Fort Churchill Solar Project on the south side of Sierra Way near the NV Energy Fort Churchill power plant in north Mason Valley is reportedly nearing completion.
The 19.9-megawatt photovoltaic solar power plant would produce electrical power to power the equivalent of 12,000 Nevada homes when the project is operational. SunPower reported this solar project would create the avoidance of 30,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year, the equivalent of removing almost 6,400 cars from the road.
