In celebration of National Clean Energy Week Sept. 25-29, APS is making progress on the path to powering homes and businesses with electricity that is 100% clean and carbon-free.
This summer, APS flipped the switch on its largest solar power plant. The Agave Solar Plant southwest of Phoenix is providing 150 megawatts of capacity to the APS electric system.
That’s enough power for 24,000 homes.
Palo Verde, a nuclear power plant about 50 miles west of Phoenix, generates 100% carbon-free electricity 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and powers 4 million homes and businesses in the Southwest, APS officials said.
APS serves approximately 1.4 million homes and businesses in 11 of Arizona’s 15 counties.
