APS Installing 15 MW of Solar at Luke Air Force Base

Arizona Public Service Co (APS) announced it is developing a 15-megawatt photovoltaic (PV) power plant at Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, Arizona. SunPower Corp. will design and construct the power plant on 100-acres of underutilized land at the base and APS will own and operate upon completion in summer 2011. The plant will use single-axis tracking to increase efficiency and is expected to generate the equivalent of 50 percent of the base's power demand.

This is the second solar project collaboration between APS and Luke Air Force Base. In 2006, APS provided $1.5 million in incentives to reduce the cost of integrating a 375-kilowatt solar system into the base exchange's (BX) new roof.
