Amazon launches latest rooftop PV system atop facility in Las Vegas

May 29: Amazon has launched a 1.1MW rooftop PV installation atop its North Las Vegas fulfillment center, standing as the company’s second project in Nevada and its 14th rooftop solar installation developed over the past 14 months in the US.

The North Las Vegas project was developed atop a 813,000 square-foot rooftop and is comprised of 3,145 individual modules, amounting to an array the size of 3.5 American football fields. Amazon now has 28 wind and solar energy projects across the US.

US Senator Catherine Cortez Masto said: “Projects like Amazon’s solar rooftop installation will help propel Nevada’s economy into the future and solidify our state’s position as the Innovation State. It will also contribute to the state’s leadership in solar energy production and green jobs. Nevada shares Amazon’s commitment to promoting sustainability and championing renewable energy projects that are good for the environment and that create good paying jobs for Nevadans.”
