Project Status
Project Update:
The BLM is denying the right-of-way application made by Crescent Peak Renewables LLC for the proposed Crescent Peak Wind project near Searchlight, Nevada. The BLM had previously determined that the proposed project would not conform with the Las Vegas Resource Management Plan – a conflict that in many cases results in immediate rejection of project proposals. Nonetheless, the agency conducted a significant public scoping process and engaged a number of cooperators, including Federal, county, and state governments, to provide information on potential project impacts. This review, however, identified multiple issues and concerns that prompted the agency’s decision to deny the application. 

These issues include that access to the turbines would potentially affect the development of more than 300 mining claims; the turbines could interfere with radar at two regional air facilities – one military and one civilian; and impacts to the visual landscape

Project Description:
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Las Vegas Field Office is preparing and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Crescent Peak Wind (CPW) Energy Project. The CPW project is proposing to construct, operate, maintain, and decommission an up-to-500 megawatt (MW) wind energy generation facility and associated transmission line. The proposed project area is located approximately 35 miles south of Las Vegas and 10 miles west of Searchlight in Clark County, Nevada. The proposed project footprint spans approximately 17 miles north-south and approximately 11 miles east-west. A 230 kilovolt (kV) transmission line would connect the proposed project to the GridLiance electrical system near Jean, Nevada or in the Eldorado Valley near Boulder City, Nevada.
