The city of Mesa is among 11 of Salt River Project’s largest energy consumers who now have the ability to lower overall carbon emissions by receiving a portion of their energy from the sun.
SRP has announced the commissioning of Saint Solar, the newest 100-megawatt solar plant. As part of SRP’s ongoing commitment to support customers in achieving their sustainability goals, the new solar plant was initiated by SRP’s Sustainable Energy Offering, according to a release.
“The city of Mesa is always looking for ways to be a little greener,” Mesa Mayor John Giles said in the release. “Thanks to SRP’s Sustainable Energy Offering, we’ll be able to tap into our generous Arizona sunshine and add more solar power to our overall energy mix. Using less coal and natural gas for power is good for the state and for the planet.”
