Washington Gas Energy Systems Signs Contract to Build Solar Array for Tuscon Electric Power
Washington Gas Energy Systems signed a contract with Tucson Electric Power (TEP) to build, own and operate a one-MW Cogenra Solar array that will provide renewable energy to the utility in Tucson, Arizona. The installation, awarded through a previous TEP RFP process, will consist of ground-mounted Cogenra T14 systems and will be constructed at Solar Zone within the University of Arizona’s Science & Technology Park (UA Tech Park). The facility will be owned and operated by Washington Gas Energy Systems under a 20-year PPA with TEP. Cogenra Solar developed and designed the project and will manage procurement and construction. The project is expected to be completed in April 2014.
