SolarReserve Leads Renewable Energy Companies At 2012 Platts Global Energy Awards

SolarReserve's flagship project began construction in September 2011, near Tonopah, Nevada.  Once completed, the 110 megawatt Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Plant will be the first commercial scale solar plant of its kind with integrated energy storage. The plant will deliver clean and reliable electricity to NV Energy and more than 75,000 homes during peak demand periods in the state of Nevada.  More than 275 construction workers are currently on site, with 75 percent of the cumulative workforce coming from Nevada residents.  The construction workforce will peak at almost 600 workers and the project is expected to create over 4,300 direct, indirect and induced jobs during the construction phase.  To date, the project has purchased equipment and services from US manufacturers and suppliers from 20 states.

"Winners of the Platts Global Energy Awards, as well as finalists, are to be congratulated for their accomplishments, contributions and commitment to the improvement of the global energy arena," said Larry Neal, president of Platts.  According to Platts, "Innovation is at the heart of all alternative energy industries – and SolarReserve is an outstanding example of innovative thinking."  All judging decisions are made by an independent panel of distinguished energy sector experts. For the full list of 2012 Platts Global Energy Awards winners, including the judges' rationale, visit the Platts Global Energy Awards website.
