    On 31st May 2018, electric utility Nevada Energy announced plans to offer six contracts for solar PV projects for a total 1 GWac. Half of the solar projects are to be paired with battery energy storage representing 100 MW / 400 MWh of energy capacity. The announcement signifies Nevada Energy’s next wave of renewable energy deployments that will help the state of Nevada achieve a 25% renewable portfolio standard (RPS) by 2025. Across the United States, the rise of solar plus storage projects illustrates their pivotal role in driving both solar and storage deployment as renewable penetration increases.
