SONORAN SOLAR PROJECT
260 Megawatts of Clean Energy in the City of Buckeye, Arizona
For decades, NextEra Energy Resources' subsidiaries have been helping fuel America’s economic growth and quality of life and moving our nation toward energy independence. To date, we operate solar projects in 27 states, including Pinal Central Solar in Pinal County, Arizona. The energy storage component of this project uses batteries to store renewable energy and make it available even when the sun isn’t shining, improving the reliability and efficiency of the electric grid and making more renewable energy available more hours of the day.
Features of the Sonoran Solar Project:
- Photovoltaic (PV) solar arrays capable of generating up to 260 megawatts (MW) of clean, renewable energy and 260 megawatts (MW) of battery energy storage.
- The project encompasses approximately 3,000 acres.
- Subject to local and state approvals, the project is scheduled to begin operations as early as June 2023.
Bringing Economic Opportunities
Solar projects generate home-grown, renewable energy, while preserving clean air and water. They can also generate significant economic benefits for the communities that host them.
*Estimated over first 35 years of the project. All figures are estimated and subject to change.
