New solar power plant to help power water water reclamation in TucsonPosted: Updated:
It was a year in the making, but Monday a new one megawatt solar power plant powered up.
The solar power will provide 9% of the energy for the nearby Roger Road waste water reclamation facility.
The county will purchase energy produced at the power plant from Sun-Edison, which financed the project, so there was no cost to the tax payers.
The unique panels tilt east to west following the sun's trajectory, harvesting 25% more energy.
