AZ Puts 17-Megawatt+ of Solar Power On Grid Now
Nov 2nd, 2011 at 5:18pm
"PHOENIX Arizona Public Service Co. and First Solar announced today the completion of the 17-megawatt (MW) Paloma Solar Power Plant the first facility to reach commercial operation as part of the AZ Sun Program.

Earlier this week, APS also placed the Cotton Center Solar Plant in commercial operation, the second AZ Sun facility to come online. Cotton Center added an additional 17 MW to the AZ Sun Program. Both plants are located in Gila Bend.

Through the first phase of the AZ Sun Program, APS is investing in the development of 100 MW of turn-key, utility-scale solar photovoltaic power plants across Arizona. Third-party partners, such as Tempe-based First Solar, develop and construct the AZ Sun facilities, which APS will own and operate upon completion. The four-year program is expected to have 100 MW online by 2014 and create more than 1,000 Arizona construction jobs."

"Paloma consists of 275,000 thin-film photovoltaic panels mounted on fixed-tilt steel supports. This installation marks the first time APS is using thin-film technology for one of its solar plants. This project also is the first on which APS has worked with First Solar."
