    Maricopa County Approves SolarReserve's 215MW Arizona Solar Energy Project

    On Nov. 20, 2012, SolarReserve announced that it has received its Special Use Permit (SUP) by unanimous decision from the Board of Supervisors of Maricopa County, Arizona for its Crossroads Solar Energy Project. The approval includes 150 megawatts (MW) of electrical generating capacity using SolarReserve's concentrating solar power (CSP) technology and 65MW of additional solar photovoltaic (PV) technology. This final approval follows two previous unanimously approved Certificates of Environmental Compatibility (CECs) from the Arizona Corporation Commission in February 2011 and a successful Major Comprehensive Plan Amendment by Maricopa County in December 2010. The CSP portion of the project utilizes SolarReserve's solar energy storage technology; the same technology under construction in SolarReserve's flagship project, the 110MW Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project near Tonopah, Nevada. During construction, the Crossroads project in Arizona is projected to create more than 450 direct jobs during peak construction within the two-year construction period and up to 5,000 direct, indirect and induced jobs, which include offsite supplier and supporting activities. When complete, the plant will employ at least 45 full-time, permanent operations staff during the project operating life of more than 30 years. With an annual operating budget of up to $10 million per year for salaries and maintenance, the project is forecasted to generate significant tax revenues throughout the operating period – contributing to workers' paychecks, as well as local businesses, school systems and police and fire departments.
