APS plans to modernize our Ocotillo Power Plant, located at University and McClintock in Tempe. We intend to invest up to $700 million in the aging plant today so we can produce energy in cleaner, more efficient ways for decades to come.
The proposed plan includes replacing two old generators built in 1960 with five modern, more efficient units on the existing plant site. Five large oil storage tanks also would be removed.
The new units will stand about half as tall as the old generators, reduce water-use rates and air-emission rates, and improve overall noise conditions at the plant. The project would provide more than 100 jobs during construction.
Your opinion is very important to us. Please attend this open house to learn more about the project, ask questions and contribute your comments.
