The Moapa Solar Energy Center is a joint endeavor of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Moapa Band of Paiute Indians, Environmental Protection Agency, US Fish and Wildlife Service and National Park Service to develop 200 MW of solar energy on a 1,000 acre site on the Moapa Reservation. The project ”will help to provide a long-term, diverse, and viable economic revenue base and job opportunities for the Moapa Band while assisting Nevada and neighboring states meet their State renewable energy needs.” Plans call for a PV solar project up to 100 MW utilizing 175,000 panels and a Concentrating Solar Power project that produces steam that is sent to a turbine to generate electricity.
