But the proposal to switch off NV Energy and use solar power for all of the district’s schools will still likely go through a public bidding process.
The three companies behind the proposal — Capital Dynamics, Tenaska and Switch — touted the move as a wise one to take advantage of solar tax credits attractive to investors.
Capital Dynamics would built a 195-megawatt solar project in Nevada. Tenaska would manage the energy from the plant.
Benoit Allehaut, a director for Capital Dynamics, said the company has two shovel-ready parcels in Clark County for the project.
