Longroad Energy has broken ground on what will become the largest solar and storage project in the company’s operational portfolio.
Sun Streams 3 is a 285-megawatt/860 megawatt-hour storage project located in Maricopa County, Ariz. The project interconnects with the grid at the Hassayampa switchyard, a major transmission hub in the western United States. The output from Sun Streams 3 will be purchased by Arizona Public Service (APS) via a long-term power-purchase agreement. The project represents 460,000 metric tons of avoided carbon dioxide emissions annually, the equivalent of taking 100,000 cars off the road, for as long as the project operates.
Longroad Energy also has reached financial close on the project.
“We are pleased to have achieved the key milestones of financial close and commencement of construction on Sun Streams 3, the latest phase of our flagship solar plus storage complex located at one of the most significant power hubs in the western U.S
