Subject: [CPEO-MEF] ENERGY: Luke Air Force Base (AZ) solar plan

SunPower Corp. expects to begin building one of the largest solar arrays in the nation at Luke Air Force Base in Glendale by the beginning of next year, base officials announced Tuesday.


Arizona Public Service would pay for and own the array of high-efficiency panels that San Jose-based SunPower would design, build and maintain. APS would sell the energy to its Valley customers and charge Luke a fixed electricity rate under a 25-year agreement. Luke would provide the 101 acres for the project south of its runway.

The project is a safe alternative for vacant land that otherwise would not have been developed because of regulations to protect Luke flight operations, APS and base officials said.
