BLM Grants Nevada Federal Land for 600 MW Wind Power Project


The Bureau of Land Management has chipped off nearly 70,000 acres of public land in Nevada for the Stagecoach Wind Project, a planned 600 MW development in the Newark Valley, about 20 miles east of Eureka.

The BLM’s right-of-way decision enables the project to move further into the development cycle, such as the initiation of environmental reviews.

Under development by California-based Arevia Power, Stagecoach Wind would be only the second large-scale wind project in Nevada, joining Pattern Energy’s 152 MW Spring Valley Wind, located in White Pine County.

Stagecoach Wind is also planned to include a 200 MW battery-based energy storage component.

According to the BLM, the project will connect to the grid at the Robinson Summit Substation near Ely.
