Primergy Solar, LLC announced that NV Energy has received final approval from the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada to purchase from Primergy the Iron Point and Hot Pot Solar PV and battery storage projects in Humboldt County, Nevada.

The projects, which are owned and being developed by Primergy, total 600-megawatt AC (MWac) of solar paired with 480 MW of battery storage capacity and once operational, will replace the coal-fired North Valmy Generating Station. Primergy is a portfolio company of Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners.

Primergy and NV Energy entered into Build Transfer Agreements for the sale and purchase of the projects, which NV Energy filed for approval with the PUCN on July 1, 2021.

The Iron Point and Hot Pot projects highlight how solar + storage plants can be a very compelling and cost competitive source of carbon free power offering significant operational flexibility to NV Energy.

Additionally, both projects support NV Energy’s transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy by taking full advantage of Nevada’s abundant solar power resources.

“We are pleased that the PUCN has approved these milestone renewable energy projects that will help advance Nevada’s net zero carbon goals,” said Ty Daul, Chief Executive Officer at Primergy. 

Construction for the projects is expected to create approximately 800 job opportunities for the local Nevadan communities during peak periods and is scheduled to begin in the second half of this year.

The bulk of these jobs will be performed by the International Brotherhood of Electric Workers.

David Scaysbrook, Managing Partner of Quinbrook, said “This is yet another bright day in Primergy’s stellar growth and achievements and further cements the market leadership position the team has so quickly established in the US. We are particularly delighted with the further vote of confidence shown by NV Energy in selecting Primergy and Quinbrook to help deliver their ambitious renewables goals with Iron Point and Hot Pot."
