Stillwater Geothermal Solar Hybrid Power Plant

  • Project Location: Fallon, NV
  • Project Category: Renewable

The ENEL Green Power 26.2-megawatt Solar Plant project is in Churchill County, Nevada, adjacent to the existing ENEL Green Power North American Stillwater Geothermal Power Plant. The project site covers 198 acres. Bombard Electric acted as the prime contractor on the project, managing civil, structural and electrical engineers and architect earthwork.

This power plant was the first of its kind in the world, integrating an existing 65-MW geothermal facility and a solar PV plant through the same utility interconnection point. The geothermal plant operation was not interrupted during the construction of the solar PV plant.

Bombard Electric was chosen to construct this project not just because of our vast experience, but also because our staffing abilities allow us to complete a project of this size in less time. This project had an accelerated time line, breaking ground in July 2011 and reaching completion in the spring of 2012. The total project value was $25.5. million.
