SolarReserve received its final Certificates of Environmental Compatibility  by unanimous decision  from the Arizona Corporation Commission for its $500 million, 150 MW Crossroads Solar Energy Project.

Approval includes the associated transmission line connecting the project to Arizona Public Service’s transmission grid. This final approval follows this past December’s decision from the Arizona Power Plant and Transmission Line Siting Committee to grant the certificates.

The project will use molten salt, power tower technology developed by Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, which provides the ability to store 10 hours of solar energy and generate electricity on demand.

The final cases are listed separately under Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) docket numbers 155 and 156 for the generator tie line and the power plant, respectively.
