Trump administration to approve the Gemini project—largest U.S. solar farm

U.S feds plan to approve a massive solar photovoltaic farm with energy storage in the desert outside Las Vegas. This paves the way for a $1b project to provide electricity to Nevada residents served by NV Energy.

At 690 megawatts across 7,100 acres, the facility would generate more power than the largest solar farm currently operating in the country, a 579-megawatt plant in Southern California.

The energy storage component — at least 380 megawatts of four-hour lithium-ion batteries — would also be one of the largest facilities of its kind.
