While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    Top Arizona Utility Goes Big On New Energy

    APS’s battery addition extravaganza; Hundreds of megawatts of battery storage are coming to the desert via a request for proposals as part of APS’ initiative to add around 1 GW of clean-energy projects by mid 2025.

    Tim Sylvia, April 3, 2019 (PV Magazine)

    “…[Arizona Public Service (APS), the state’s dominant investor-owned utility, announced April 3] a request for proposals (RFP) to bring hundreds of MW in capacity of energy storage…[It will support a planned GW of] new and existing solar…APS will add batteries to its] Chino Valley (19 MW) and Red Rock (40 MW) solar projects…[T]he battery capacities that have been revealed at other projects all match the nameplate capacities of the projects they’re coupled to…APS anticipates both of these projects to be completed by 2021…[They represent] the final step of APS’ February announcement that the company would be developing 200 MW of battery storage to be paired with existing solar facilities…

    [In the same RFP, APS] is soliciting 500 MW of new solar + storage projects and stand-alone battery storage by 2025…[APS] is seeking developers for a solar + storage project for a 100 MW facility to be paired with a 100 MW battery…[as part of a bigger goal to add close to 1 GW of clean-energy projects by the summer of 2025…[It is likely to be mostly solar because] nuclear wouldn’t be deployed at that scale, Arizona’s geography doesn’t suit hydro or geothermal and solar is generally cheaper than wind in the state…” click here for more
