Construction of the largest solar power plant in the United States has been approved

The Gemini project will create about 2 thousand jobs.

The administration of Donald Trump has finally approved the largest solar energy project in the United States and one of the largest in the world.

The $ 1 billion Gemini solar-battery power plant will be located 48 kilometers from Las Vegas and is expected to generate 690 megawatts of electricity.

This is enough to supply electricity to 260 thousand households and annually compensate for the exhaust from about 83 thousand cars.

The project will create, directly or indirectly, about 2,000 jobs and inject about $ 712.5 million into the economy as the country tries to recover from the downturn caused by the coronavirus epidemic, interior Minister David Bernhardt said.
