Ormat plant in operation
Ormat Technologies Inc. of Reno said last week it’s begun commercial operation of its McGinness Hills geothermal plant in Lander County.
The 30-megawatt plant will sell its production to NV Energy under the terms of a 20-year contract.
The news comes on the heels of a luxury home report from Nevada State Bank that showed in 2019, Northern Nevada’s high-value real estate market accounted for 418 home sales in 2019, an increase of 4.8 percent over 2018. The average luxury home price was over $1.8 million in 2019.
