Nevada Developing New Transmission Line to Connect Its 5 Biggest Solar Projects 

Solar power in Nevada has reached at least 3.7 GW of capacity, and the Department of the Interior is developing additional transmission lines to handle more. 

Officials gathered in the state last week to highlight Nevada’s progress toward meeting federal clean energy goals.  

The event included acting Deputy Secretary of Interior Laura Daniel-Davis and John Raby, who leads the Bureau of Land Management in Nevada. They announced the completion of the final environmental analysis for Greenlink West, the 470-mile link between North Las Vegas and Reno. 

Greenlink has been a major component of the federal push to fast-track the permitting process for solar projects. There are currently 35 operational solar plants throughout Nevada with a total capacity of 3,721 MW. 

“Large-scale transmission projects are key to the Biden-Harris administration’s goal of moving our nation towards a clean energy future with good-paying jobs and healthy local economies while tackling the climate crisis,” Daniel-Davis said in a statement. “Working with states, Tribes and partners across the American West, we are taking bold steps to build the infrastructure that will get us to a 100% clean electric grid by 2035.”
