Moapa Band a Front-Runner in Clean Energy: First Utility-Scale Solar Plant on Tribal Land

Written by at March 20, 2017

Roughly 30 miles north of Las Vegas, shovels broke earth on March 17 to pave way for 3.2 million solar panels to cover 25 million square feet (that’s 450 NFL football fields). The Moapa Southern Paiute Solar Project will be the first-ever utility-scale solar power plant on tribal land.

First Solar Inc. and the Moapa Band of Paiutes joined forces for the 250-megawatt solar farm on the 72,000-acre Moapa River Indian Reservation.
