Bombard Renewable Energy participated in a press conference Thursday, May 21, 2015 with the City of Las Vegas, Nevada Governor’s Office of Energy and NV Energy. Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman was presented with a check from NV Energy for nearly $700,000 in solar energy rebates at the newly completed Durango Hills Community Center solar parking lot in Las Vegas.
The city recently completed four new solar projects including the solar-covered parking at Durango Hills and participated in NV Energy’s Solar Generations program and is receiving the rebates for completing these systems to NV Energy’s standards.
Presenting the check to the mayor was Stacey Kusters, NV Energy’s vice president of renewable energy and origination. Also speaking at the event was Paul Thomsen, director of the Nevada Office of Energy.
The Nevada Office of Energy (GOE) awarded $1.24 million in loans to the city of Las Vegas to help fund solar parking projects. The loan is part of a revolving program, which provides loans for projects that develop renewable energy systems, energy conservation and manufacturing of components for renewable energy systems.
Thanks to this funding the city was able to contract with Bombard Renewable Energy to construct solar panels at the following City of Las Vegas locations: • East Yard (140 kilowatts) • West Yard (100 kilowatts) • Durango Hills Community Center (160 kilowatts). As a part of this expanded project, Bombard Renewable Energy also added 200 kilowatts of solar at the city’s detention center.
Completion of these projects increased the city’s capacity to more than six megawatts of solar. Over the last several years Bombard Renewable Energy has installed solar on approximately 20 different projects for the city including the new city hall.
