MGM Resorts International and Invenergy have partnered on a new solar photovoltaic array, which will generate 100MW of clean, renewable energy. The MGM-Invenergy Solar Project will be located 25 miles north of Las Vegas and MGM Resorts will purchase all the energy generated by the project to help power its 13 properties on the Las Vegas Strip. The project will be operational by the end of 2020.
"Protecting the planet is a business imperative for MGM Resorts and it is our responsibility to find innovative ways where we can use clean energy to power our resorts," said Jim Murren, Chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International. "As a company we care deeply about how we use our resources. This array will be a new source of clean energy that will help power our Las Vegas resorts."
"Invenergy is a leader in solving energy challenges for businesses like MGM that are backing up their commitment to sustainability by powering their operations with renewable energy," said Invenergy's Founder and CEO Michael Polsky. "Solar energy offers cost-competitive power with zero carbon emissions, providing tremendous value and long-term certainty for customers looking to minimize their impact on the environment."
