Iberdrola Renewables Opens Copper Crossing Solar Ranch in Arizona

LCG, November 10, 2011--Iberdrola Renewables and its partners on Tuesday officially opened the Copper Crossing Solar Ranch, a 20-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) project that began delivering power to the grid in August. Construction began in late 2010.

Salt River Project (SRP) will purchase the entire output of the project under a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA). The renewable energy purchased from the facility will help satisfy SRP's Sustainable Portfolio goal to serve 20 percent of its retail electricity requirements through sustainable resources by 2020. The goal was set by the SRP Board.

The Copper Crossing Solar Ranch is located in Arizona on a 144-acre site, approximately 65 miles southeast of Phoenix, that is now owned by SRP. The project was designed and built by SunPower. The facility employs over 66,000 SunPower (320W and 425W) panels and uses single axis, T0 trackers to follow the sun and increase power generation.
