Arizona Utility Coalition Considers 250-MW Solar Power Plant

A coalition of utility firms, including Tucson Electric Power, Arizona Public Service and the Salt River Project, are considering building a 250-megawatt solar power plant that could power as many as 250,000 homes, Associated Press reports.

Utility officials said they’re looking at sites in Nevada and Arizona. Other potential partners include the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and the Sacramento Municipal Utility District.

The solar plant would be among the largest built and is being considered to help meet requirement set by Arizona state regulators for utilities to obtain at least 15 percent of their power from renewable resources by 2015. The solar plant would likely involve concentrator technologies.

In Nevada, a 64-megawatt thermal solar power plant in Boulder City is scheduled for completion in March 2007 at an estimated cost of $106 million.
