Salt River Project announced on Tuesday a new solar plant to provide renewable energy to large customers including Apple, PepsiCo, Target, Boeing and Dignity Health.
The new plant will be built in Eloy by a Utah company called sPower and should be running by next year. The 100-megawatt plant will generate enough power to supply about 25,000 homes at once when the sun is shining. The plant will be called Central Line Solar.
The plant helps the public electric and water utility meet the growing demand for renewable energy from its biggest customers, officials said.
