 sPower breaks ground on 45 MW Sandstone Solar project in Arizona

Independent power producer and renewable energy provider, sPower, has entered the construction phase of its 45-MW Sandstone Solar project in Florence, Arizona after securing permits and approvals from the Town of Florence and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the project’s Environmental Assessment (EA).

Swinerton Renewable Energy will serve as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor, who will install more than 182,000 Jinko Solar photovoltaic (PV) modules.

When operational, the Sandstone Solar facility is expected to offset carbon emissions by more than 88,800 metric tons annually.

Energy generated by the facility will be purchased by the Salt River Project (SRP) under a 21-year power purchase agreement.

The facility is scheduled to reach operations by the end of the year.
