(Corrects spelling of Pima County in second paragraph.)
The 5-megawatt Ajo project in Pima County has 21,000 photovoltaic panels and began producing power in September, Charlotte, North Carolina-based Duke said today in a statement that didn’t give a price. The 15-megawatt Bagdad project, in Yavapai County, is expected to go into operation by the end of the year and will use 72,000 panels.
Both projects have 25-year power-purchase agreements with utility Arizona Public Service Co.
