NextEra, Colorado Springs Utilities Commission 10-MW Solar Array


By Editors of Power Engineering

Colorado Springs Utilities and NextEra Energy Resources have officially commissioned the Clear Spring Ranch Solar Array south of Colorado Springs.

The 10-MW project features 42,000 ground-mounted solar panels. A subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources developed and built the array, and will own and operate it.

Colorado Springs Utilities will purchase power from the array via a 25-year agreement. The utility also owns the Clear Spring Ranch land.

The array is expected to offset over 18,600 tons of carbon dioxide emissions that would have been produced if the energy had been generated with hydrocarbons.
