Arizona Public Service Completes Construction of Desert Star Solar Plant

Arizona Public Service and McCarthy Building Companies Inc. have announced the completion of construction of the Desert star solar plant. The event marked the inauguration of the ninth solar project to be constructed under APS's AZ Sun program. When complete this year, AZ Sun will generate enough solar energy to power more than 42,000 homes. Full commercial operations are expected to begin at the plant in July.

Arizona Public Service Completes Transmission Construction Projects in the West

Arizona Public Service recently completed work on transmission construction projects in the west - a 500-kilovolt (kV) power line that connects Phoenix to Yuma. The project will bolster the reliability for Yuma area customers and the entire desert southwest. The 110-mile transmission line runs from the Hassayampa substation (near the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station) to the North Gila substation in Yuma. Aptly called HANG2, the $200 million project is the second route connecting the Valley to Yuma. Construction planning for the HANG2 line began more than a decade ago, as Southwest Arizona's population began to rapidly expand. APS understood the essential need to increase the capacity to bring electricity into Yuma County. The HANG2 line meets this need.
