Arizona's changing energy mix
Arizona’s energy resources will continue to get cleaner.
Over the next 15 years, we forecast double the amount of renewable energy and triple the amount of savings from energy efficiency programs. In addition, natural gas is projected to become the largest source of electricity generation for APS customers.
Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station, the nation’s largest power producer for the last 23 years, generates more than 30 million megawatt-hours of reliable, low-cost energy each year without any air emissions. With Palo Verde, a growing renewable energy portfolio and efficiency programs that allow customers to save energy, nearly half of all APS energy sales in 2014 were carbon-free.
