Avalon Solar - (57 MW) Tucson Arizona

During January 2014, Equator Solar sold a 57-megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) project it had developed, through its subsidiary Avalon Solar Partners, LLC, on a 500-acre site south of Tucson, Arizona. The project was developed in two phases under long-term Power Purchase Agreements signed with Tucson Electric Power (TEP). Phase-1 is 35MW and commenced commercial operations during January 2015. Phase-2 is approximately 22 MW and commenced commercial operations during January 2016. At full capacity, the facility will generate enough energy to power over 9,250 homes.

The Avalon project is located on degraded land owned by Asarco, an integrated copper mining, smelting and refining company headquartered in Tucson. The collaboration among Asarco, TEP and Equator was born out of an U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program established with the objective of siting renewable energy projects on disturbed lands including mine sites.
