The planned solar generation will be owned by APS and designed with the potential for future energy storage. It will be switched on by 2021, according to a company release.

This added capacity will support the regional utility's target of expanding its renewable energy portfolio to around 2,500MW by 2021 – or enough to power half a million homes.

Solar accounts for 6.42% of Arizona's electricity and employs more than 7,500 people in the state, according to the Solar Energies Industries Association.

An independent, third-party monitor will review the competitive procurement process. More specific information about the tender will be released in the coming weeks.

The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
