Agreement contributes significantly to Wynn’s landmark goal to meet 50% of its energy needs with renewable energy by 2030
NEW YORK, May 3, 2022 — Brookfield Renewable U.S. (“Brookfield”), a leading owner, operator and developer of renewable power, and Wynn Resorts (“Wynn”) today announced a multi-year, wholesale power agreement for the supply of clean energy and market energy to serve Wynn Las Vegas. The additional supplies of clean energy from the agreement help to advance Wynn’s goal to meet at least half of its energy consumption from renewable energy resources by 2030.
Under the transaction, Brookfield Renewable is optimizing the delivery of clean, renewable hydropower and market energy for Wynn’s Las Vegas facilities, managing the gaps in energy supply and addressing the variability of the Resort’s contracted offtake of solar generation. In addition, the optimized delivery of market energy balances out Wynn’s intermittent supplies of solar power to ensure reliable electric service
“The additional supplies of hydropower, combined with power generated from existing rooftop solar and a 160-acre solar facility account for nearly half of the resort’s total energy demand, putting Wynn Las Vegas on pace to meet the Company’s sustainable energy goals,” said Erik Hansen, CSO for Wynn Resorts.
“We are pleased to provide Wynn with an innovative, customized solution to reliably meet their need for a greater amount of clean, renewable energy,” said Mitch Davidson, Chief Executive Officer of Brookfield Renewable U.S. “As a global leader in decarbonization, Brookfield Renewable has the deep expertise to advance the sustainable energy goals of businesses like Wynn Resorts.”
