COOLIDGE — With active solar farms and the first vertical beams up at the Nikola site, Saint Holdings CEO Jackob Andersen said the company was “marching forward with our plans” for the Inland Port project a few miles south of downtown Coolidge. Andersen said the multi-year land development project could be fast-tracked as they look to find potential partners.
At the north end of Saint Holdings’ property, two 100-megawatt solar plants — East Line Solar and Saint Solar — went online. The solar plants occupy several thousand acres at the intersection of State Routes 87 and 287 and are servicing companies in the Phoenix metro area.
In addition to the completion of the Nikola plant, Andersen said they expected to begin construction of two of the port’s road expansions this year. The company received just over $15 million for a BUILD grant at the end of 2019, and planned to use that for improvements along Hanna and Houser roads, just east of SR 87.
