SRP Seeks Solar Energy From Bidders Including Navajo Nation

McKenzie Jones

One of Arizona's largest utilities is seeking companies to build solar plants to provide up to 400 megawatts of power, including 200 megawatts from Navajo Nation facilities. 

The Farmington Daily Times reported Salt River Project issued a request for proposals Jan. 15. SRP officials say the energy will be delivered to customers in central Arizona.

The request from the Phoenix-based utility asks for proposals for plants that can produce between 100 and 200 megawatts.

The company says Navajo Nation plants could be located anywhere within its territory that can connect to the SRP grid.
