Townsite Solar Facility
Arevon, North America’s leading renewable energy company, developed this 232 MW DC/193.95 MC AC solar PV plant south of Las Vegas with Rosendin Renewable Energy Group.
Townsite Solar Facility supported more than 480 construction trade jobs. Since November 2020, IBEW Local 357 workers contributed over 147,800 labor hours through May 2021, with a peak manpower of 520 craft workers. The IBEW was critical to the project’s success by providing a steady stream of reliable, qualified craft workers.
Townsite generates more than 500,000 MWh per year of renewable energy, enough to power 60,000 homes annually, avoiding 400,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually.
