APS takes proposals for solar facility

Arizona’s largest utility company is taking proposals from solar developers and installers for a 32-megawatt facility in Gila Bend.

Arizona Public Service Co. says it will accept bids starting Aug. 22 and is encouraging developers to participate in an upcoming webinar.

The company has been investing in the development of 200 megawatts of solar photovoltaic plants statewide. The goal is to have eight solar facilities operating by the end of 2015 under the AZ Sun Program, creating more than 2,000 construction jobs.

The 32-megawatt facility in Gila Bend will provide enough electricity to power 8,000 Arizona homes.
