Sundown won’t mean the end of power production at the big Solana Generating Station in Arizona, in a testing phase now and about to go into commercial operation.
After adding a record 148 megawatts of solar in 2012, Arizona Public Service expects to bring online more than double that amount this year.
Cronkite News reports on a visit to an Arizona solar power facility by U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar as he talked about what he sees as benefits of clean energy.
Once expected to be online in early 2011, the Solana power plant in Arizona gets a $1.45 billion federal loan guarantee, and construction will now proceed.
