Silverhawk Generating Station is a 585 MW gas-fired power station located in the Apex Industrial Park in North Las Vegas, Nevada. Power is generated by a D-11 steam turbine powered by two 501FD2 combustion turbines. The Southern Nevada Water Authority is a 25% owner in the plant.[1][2][3][4]


The facility began construction as a Pinnacle West power station.[4]


Since it is located in a desert where water is limited, the plant uses a six-story-high dry cooling system.[1]
