Adding batteries to our current solar plants will take our solar to the next
level by making it available after the sun goes down. Plus we’re building new
solar storage plants and standalone batteries across the state.
We're joining forces with another Arizona solar leader, First Solar, to create a solar-plus-storage plant that will provide clean power after the sun goes down.
The award-winning APS Solar Partner program combines rooftop solar for customers with groundbreaking research. And, the APS Solar Communities program increases access to rooftop solar for limited- to moderate-income customers.
Today, we serve customers with an energy mix that is already 50% clean.
APS currently has 10 large-scalesolar plants across Arizona.
The Palo Verde Generation Station provides 70% of Arizona's carbon-free energy and uses recycled wastewater to cool the plant.
It’s hard to imagine that waste could provide a clean source of energy, but it’s a reality at landfills in Glendale and Surprise. When organic materials break down, they produce methane gas, which is used to fuel large combustion engines that generate power. We purchase nearly all the clean energy generated at these landfills and efficiently distribute it to customers across the state.
The recent closure of three coal-fired units at the Four Corners Power Plant, which we operate, will make our overall energy mix cleaner and more efficient for generations to come. Ending operation of the older units 1 – 3 will dramatically reduce our carbon footprint in the Four Corners region, while continuing operation of units 4 and 5 will keep high-quality jobs in the Navajo Nation and Farmington areas.
The proposed modernization of Ocotillo Power Plant in Tempe will create a cleaner-running, more-efficient plant that helps us meet growing customer demand in the metro Phoenix area. Five new natural gas combustion turbines will decrease the plant's overall water usage and emission rates, reduce the plant’s visibility from surrounding neighborhoods, and decrease noise conditions – all while maintaining the reliability our customers require.
next means putting arizona’s most abundant natural resource to work
next is innovative new technology that strengthens safety and reliability
next is making our plants cleaner and more efficient
see what’s next for Arizona’s energy future
