Crescent Peak Renewables LLC filed a Sept. 12 application at the Nevada Public Utilities Commission for approval on a 500-MW wind farm to be located in Clark County, Nev.
The project, located near Searchlight, would be on federal land managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The company expects to interconnect the wind project with the grid with a 115 to 230 kV overhead transmission line and a new substation/switchyard.
Crescent Peak is a subsidiary of California-based Oak Creek Energy Systems.
There would be up to 220 wind turbine generators installed as part of the project. The Sept. 12 application filed at the commission is under the state’s Utility Environmental Protection Act.
