The Red Rock Solar Plant an example of how utilities can partner with customers to develop cost-effective solar energy was unveiled to the public today. APS developed and will own and operate the 40-megawatt photovoltaic plant, located 30 miles south of Casa Grande in Red Rock, Ariz. Arizona State University (ASU) and PayPal will purchase renewable energy from APS that is equivalent to the amount Red Rock is projected to generate.

“The construction of Red Rock is a great example of how we partner with our commercial customers to find innovative and sustainable solutions that can help them realize their green energy goals,” said Daniel Froetscher, APS Senior Vice President of Transmission, Distribution and Customers. “The cooperation between APS, ASU and PayPal demonstrates how the Arizona business community is committed to developing solar energy in a smart, cost-effective manner.”

ASU and PayPal were both seeking ways to reduce their carbon footprint. This agreement helps ASU expand its solar energy sourcing beyond its almost 25 megawatts of on-campus solar sites. It also helps PayPal keep up with its energy demand, while also supporting a desire to be a leader in the community by driving energy sustainability.

“We are very pleased that the Red Rock Solar Plant will more than double our solar generating capacity to more than 50 megawatts,” said Morgan R. Olsen, ASU executive vice president, treasurer and chief financial officer. “This project enables us to expand our solar portfolio substantially with no initial capital investment and underscores our sustainability commitment. ASU is proud to continue building our solar collection that has grown to 88 installations since 2004. In calendar year 2017, we expect approximately 30 percent of our electrical needs will be met with clean, renewable solar energy.”

Red Rock is APS’s largest grid-scale solar power plant, surpassing the 35-MW Foothills Solar Plant located near Yuma, Ariz. Large solar plants, like Red Rock, take advantage of economies of scale to provide additional solar to more customers at a lower cost.

“Arizona is one of the most solar-friendly states in the nation, and APS remains at the forefront among solar-friendly companies,” Froetscher said. “In fact, last year, we reached one gigawatt of solar on our system, becoming the only utility outside California to achieve this milestone.”

The Red Rock Solar Plant is located east of APS’s Saguaro Natural Gas Power Plant on land APS has owned since the 1950s. With transmission lines already nearby, the 400-acre plot was an ideal location for a grid-scale solar plant. With the completion of the solar plant, the land is now creating additional tax income for Pinal County and other local taxing authorities.

APS (aps.com) serves about 2.7 million people in 11 of Arizona’s 15 counties, and is the Southwest’s foremost producer of clean, safe and reliable electricity. Using a balanced energy mix that is nearly 50 percent carbon-free, APS has one of the country’s most substantial renewable energy portfolios, and owns and operates the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station, the country’s top power producer and largest producer of carbon-free energy. The company is also a proven leader in introducing technology and services that offer customers choice and control over their energy consumption. With headquarters in Phoenix, APS is the principal subsidiary of Pinnacle West Capital Corp. (NYSE: PNW).​
