Ormat Technologies, Inc. received the incentive for its Don A. Campbell Phase II geothermal power plant after meeting State and local statutes requiring that the project provide employment for Nevadans, a living wage with comprehensive health benefits, and a major capital investment in the State.
“The construction of this power plant is a result of Nevada’s commitment to the development and exportation of renewable energy,” said Paul Thomsen, GOE Director. “The streamlined permitting and enhanced incentives are allowing projects like this to move forward, create jobs, and show energy developers that Nevada is a great place to do business.”
Once completed, the power plant will be capable of generating up to 19 MW (net) on a yearly average basis, above the Power Purchase Agreement nominal target of 16.2 MW, which will be sold to Southern California Public Power Authority under a 20 year contract.
