Eagle Shadow Mountain Solar Project

Eagle Shadow Mountain Solar Project was the largest solar installation to date built on tribal land and was also the largeest solar PV project ever built for NV Energy. This 300-megawatt (MW) project was built on the Moapa River Indian Reservation in Clark County, Nevada about 30 miles north of Las Vegas. The project was also part of NV Energy’s plans to retire a 254 MW coal-fired unit in a power-constrained region of Nevada at the end of 2021.
