Description: Apex Clean Energy is exploring the feasibility of constructing Searchlight Wind, a clean energy project expected to generate about 200 MW of renewable electricity. Located in rural Clark County, Searchlight Wind offers an opportunity to address Nevada’s growing electricity demand with clean domestic energy, while diversifying Clark County’s economy and supporting the rural community in southeast Nevada.

Under the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Preferred Wind Energy Development Alternative, the BLM has authorized Searchlight Wind to be constructed, operated, and decommissioned. This proposed facility will begin generating power as soon as the project and all associated infrastructure, including Western's proposed switching station, are constructed. It is anticipated that the wind energy facility will operate for up to 30 years.
