Stanley Consultants Joins Effort to Tap Power of the Sun in Nevada
October 28, 2021
The Nevada project represents the Stanley Consultants’ emphasis on helping its clients address global
warming and deliver a carbon-free future. As part of its commitment to customers to transform power
generation from carbon-based to renewable energy, Stanley Consultants has already provided 2,950 MW
of solar and storage consulting services.
The Dry Lake facility is one of three recently approved large solar projects that represent NV Energy’s
ongoing commitment to advance renewable energy development and reduce carbon emissions while
keeping customer rates low and maintaining reliability.
The 150 MW Dry Lake solar project will be located 20 miles northeast of Las Vegas in a designated
federal solar energy zone. It includes a battery storage system capable of storing 400 MWh and
delivering 100 MW for a 4-hour period. In Nevada, 150 MW of solar energy would power 24,000 homes
for a year, according to solar industry statistics.
The solar and battery project is being executed as two separate engineer procure construct (EPC)
contracts. Stanley Consultants will assist NV Energy in reviewing the environmental permitting and
photovoltaic and battery storage design, as well as monitoring the project during construction,
commissioning and performance testing.
“We look forward to contributing professional services to NV Energy on this project and building upon our
growing renewable energy practice,” said - Chris DePodesta, renewable energy practice lead for Stanley
Consultants. “Together with our clients we are working towards achieving sustainability, resiliency and
carbon reduction goals using all the technology at our disposal.”
Stanley Consultants has also partnered with two subconsultants: ArcVera Renewables, which will be
providing renewable technology and testing expertise; and BEC Environmental, a Las Vegas firm that will
support the Stanley Consultants environmental team.
In addition to home office support, Stanley Consultants will provide construction management oversight
and onsite support, including commissioning and testing.
