The partnership was made possible through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for 27MWdc of the solar facility at Stillwater. The energy produced at the solar facility meets up to 75% of Wynn Las Vegas’ current peak power requirements, which is the largest percentage of renewable energy used by any resort in Las Vegas.
