Investment Tax Credits & DOI Title 17 Provide $1 Billion + for Nevada Solar SIte
Federal funding, federal lands, federal tax incentives - the DOI is getting serious about concentrating solar in utility scale installations.
US Interior Department OKs Second Large Solar Project on Nevada Public Lands
The project has undergone extensive environmental review, officials said. BLM, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Park Service worked closely with Solar Millennium to develop an innovative mitigation plan for water use that can serve as a model for future solar projects.
The project will have a net-neutral benefit on the plant and animal species found at nearby Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge and the Devils Hole, a cavern located within the refuge. BLM also worked with the developer to reduce the approved project's footprint from 7,630 acres to 6,320 acres. The BLM will require a natural color palette and minimum night lighting measures to reduce visual impacts on the local community.
$1 billion in investment tax credits
Through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act's incentives for specified energy programs, Solar Millennium would be eligible for approximately $1 billion in investment tax credits. The company is also eligible to apply for financing through the DOE Title 17 Loan Guarantee Program. The project is negotiating to sell electricity to NV Energy under the terms of a power purchase agreement.
Taxpayer sources of subsidies include:
