Large solar plant to be built in Florence, produce power for SRP
Construction of a new Florence solar facility begins early next year, and by Christmas of 2015, the Sandstone Solar Power Plant should be pumping out electricity.
Salt River Project has a 21-year agreement for 45 megawatts of solar photovoltaic energy from the facility. SRP will purchase all of the solar energy produced at Sandstone.
SRP’s Scott Harelson said the plant will be constructed and owned by Utah-based sPower. It will become the utility’s largest solar facility.
