We own or operate 7 natural-gas-fueled plants in Arizona.
Redhawk is our largest combined-cycle power plant. It includes 2 identical 530-MW natural gas-fueled combined-cycle units. Located near the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station west of Phoenix, Redhawk uses treated effluent purchased from Palo Verde to meet its cooling needs. Redhawk is a zero liquid discharge site; the cooling water is continually reclaimed and reused. No water is released to the environment.
We own and operate Redhawk, which opened in mid-2002.
The natural gas-fueled power plant has 7 generating units – 2 combustion turbine units and 5 units – that employ combined-cycle technology. Located in southwest Phoenix, West Phoenix generates about 1,000 MW of electricity.
We own and operate West Phoenix.
