The Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comments on a proposed Wind Energy Project in Clark County.
The proposal aligns with the Trump administration’s America First Energy Plan, an approach that includes renewable sources with sources such as coal, oil and gas – all of which can be developed on public lands.
The Crescent Peak Project would consist of the construction, operation and eventual decommissioning of wind turbines and associated facilities necessary to generate up to 500 megawatts of electricity. The proposed project area is located on 32,531 acres of public land 10 miles west of Searchlight, Nevada.
It is estimated that the project would generate up to 1,200 direct jobs at peak construction, with a permanent staff of 20 operating the facility after construction.
Comments must be received prior to the close of the scoping period or no later than 15 days after the last public meeting.
