August 5 (Renewables Now) - Vancouver, Canada-based Revolve Renewable Power Corp (CVE:REVV) has received the green light for its right of way/variance land application related to a 250-MW solar project with battery storage in Arizona.

The wind, solar and energy storage developer said on Thursday that the approval is part of the US Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM’s) permitting process, the next step in which is the completion of an environmental review.

The Parker solar-storage complex is planned to be installed on BLM-managed land near the town of Parker in Arizona’s La Paz County. Once in operation, the photovoltaic (PV) park is expected to generate enough electricity to supply around 300,000 homes per year.

Revolve is working on the project through its 90%-owned subsidiary Revolve Parker Solar LLC. The company said that by the end of this year, it intends to proceed with biological, aquatic and cultural resource assessments at the selected site, study the interconnection process with the Western Area Power Administration and make further reviews of its proposal.

Engineering consultancy Wood Group Inc has been hired to lead the field studies. The contractor has already initiated biological field studies and will complete them in the next few months, while results from the aquatic and cultural resource assessments will be available in the first quarter of 2023.

At present, Revolve is working on the development of utility-scale wind, solar and battery storage projects in the US and Mexico totalling 3.7 GW, it said.
