June 25 (Renewables Now) - EDF Renewables North America said on Monday it has struck a power purchase agreement (PPA) for its 200-MW Arrow Canyon solar project in Nevada.

The North American unit of French renewable energy group EDF Energies Nouvelles (EDF EN) has signed the PPA with local utility NV Energy.

Located in Clark County, on the Moapa Band of Paiute Indians Reservation, Arrow Canyon will utilise bifacial solar modules and will be coupled with a 75-MW, five-hour energy storage system (ESS).

Expected to commence energy delivery in December 2020, the photovoltaic (PV) facility will generate enough power to meet the annual demand of 64,000 homes and offset over 464,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per year.

EDF will provide operations and maintenance (O&M) services for the facility, the company noted.
