Wynn Las Vegas will power its multi-use development, Paradise Park, with 100 percent renewable energy sourced from a new 160-acre solar energy facility.

Under the terms of the agreement with Enel Green Power North America, Inc., Wynn Las Vegas will begin receiving power in the first half of 2018 which will be used to offset up to 75 percent of the resort’s current peak power requirements until Paradise Park opens.
Owned and operated by EGPNA, The Wynn Solar Facility is a standalone solar photovoltaic project located in Fallon, Nevada adjacent to the existing award-winning Stillwater hybrid facility, and will share the existing connection infrastructure with the geothermal-solar hybrid plant. The Wynn Solar Facility will generate up to 27 MWdc of renewable energy, equivalent to 20 MWac, to power the resort.
Combined with the recently installed solar panels covering 103,000 square feet of Wynn’s rooftop, enough renewable energy will be generated to power 5,056 homes and eliminate 33,734 metric tons of CO2 emissions from the environment annually.
