at SNWA water treatment facilities.

The Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) has incorporated various photovoltaic technologies into its water system operations.

River Mountains Solar Facility

The 14-megawatt River Mountains Solar Facility features more than 55,000 solar panels covering nearly 100 acres. Completed in 2015, the system provides clean and renewable energy to power a portion of the community's water treatment system.

The facility also features solar covered parking panels and a Regional Test Center which produces 432 kilowatts of clean energy.

Combined, SNWA's solar projects generate approximately 38,600,000 kilowatt hours per year - the equivalent energy usage of more than 3,000 Las Vegas households.
