EC&R Solar solar projects to sell 20 MW to Tucson Electric

E.On Climate & Renewables Solar commissioned a pair of solar photovoltaic projects in the Tucson, Arizona area with a combined total of 20 MW of solar power capacity. Both projects have long-term power purchase agreements with Tucson Electric Power (TEP).

Tech Park Solar, a 7 MW project, was developed in collaboration with the Campus Research Corp. at the University of Arizona Science and Technology Park Solar Zone and TEP.

Valencia Solar, a 13 MW project came online in late June. Construction of the two facilities began in the second half of 2012.

The Tech Park Solar and Valencia facilities, encompassing a combined 150 acres, will provide the local area with over $5 million in property taxes over the life of the project. More than 180 employees worked on the sites during the construction phase.

Components for the projects were provided by U.S. inverter manufacturer Eaton and tracker manufacturer Terrafix.
