Visitors Ask Questions at Project Open House

May 02, 2014

Nearly 40 neighborhood residents and others learned more about the Ocotillo Modernization Project during an April 22 open house sponsored by APS.

With the plant serving as a backdrop to the open house at ASU’s Karsten Golf Course clubhouse, attendees had the opportunity to ask project team members questions, view nearly 30 information boards and watch a video describing the project. The display boards covered everything from environmental, engineering and construction details about the project to the plant’s history.

Visitors could also submit written public comments about the project. The comments will be included in the company’s project application to be filed with the Arizona Corporation Commission.

“This project is a great example of how APS is demonstrating our commitment to sustainability,” said Brent Gifford, new generation engineering manager for APS. “It makes sense for the environment and for our customers. It’s an easy story to tell.”

People who were unable to attend the open house may submit public comments using this form (under "Get Involved").
