Arizona Public Service Co. announces a Request for Proposal (RFP) from
solar developers and installers to construct two 10-megawatt solar
photovoltaic facilities - financed by APS through the company's AZ Sun
The RFP began on June 16, and interested parties are encouraged to
participate in a bidder's webinar on June 23. Additional information
about the webinar and the RFP is available online at aps.com/rfp.
Projects must utilize commercially proven technology. When completed in
2015, the new solar facilities - one located on Luke Air Force Base and
the other to be built in partnership with the City of Phoenix - will be
owned and operated by APS. These facilities will join seven other AZ Sun
Projects that are already online or under construction, totaling 170 MW
of solar energy for Arizona - enough to power more than 42,000 APS
With the AZ Sun Program, APS is investing in the development of solar
photovoltaic power plants across Arizona. The program allows APS to
partner with third-party developers and equipment providers to design
and construct the facilities, which increase the opportunity for more
developers to participate since project financing is provided by APS.
APS, Arizona's largest and longest-serving electricity utility, serves
nearly 1.2 million customers in 11 of the state's 15 counties. With
headquarters in Phoenix, APS is the principal subsidiary of Pinnacle
West Capital Corp. (NYSE: PNW).
