Red Rock Solar Project

The ASU Red Rock Solar Project is a collaboration between ASU and Arizona Public Service. APS agreed to construct and operate roughly 29 MWdc of solar energy generating capacity for ASU at its Red Rock site near Casa Grande, Arizona. In return, ASU agreed to purchase 65,000 megawatt hours of solar energy per year for 20 years.

The Red Rock Project significantly increases ASU’s renewable energy portfolio. ASU has now driven the development of over 50 megawatts dc solar generating capacity in Arizona. ASU expects approximately 30 percent of its electrical needs will be met in 2017 with clean renewable energy.
