proposed 280MW Solana solar power plant in Arizona has been approved by
the state utility regulators, giving the go-ahead for the facility’s
construction. The new venture will be located at Gila Bend, Arizona,
and is being commissioned by Arizona Public Service Co. It is expected
to come into operation in 2011 and provide power for close to 70,000
homes in Arizona at its peak output.
