Many school facilities in Nevada—including several higher education institutions such as Truckee Meadows Community College, Western Nevada College and Desert Research Institute—are now producing power from solar arrays. Recently, Black Rock Solar, a non-profit solar power organization that helps to outfit local facilities with solar resources, installed a new solar array at Rite of Passage Silver State Academy in Yerington.

Around 2.5 megawatts of power is produced by solar power throughout the state, including half a megawatt generated for the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe. Nevada State College in Henderson and Hillside Elementary School in Lockwood are next on the list to receive arrays from Black Rock Solar.
