The Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) approved SRP’s application for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility (CEC) on June 21, 2023.
The CEP enables SRP to meet the significant and increasing near-term energy needs in its service territory, which is located in one of the fastest-growing regions in the nation. In addition, the CEP will allow SRP to add more renewable resources while maintaining the reliability of the power grid. The CEP will include construction of up to 575 megawatts (MW) of new power generation produced by 12 gas turbines and will leverage the existing Coolidge Generating Station site and infrastructure, located near the intersection of Randolph Road and South Arizona Boulevard.
A PUBLIC HEARING WAS HELD before the Arizona Power Plant and Transmission Line Siting Committee regarding the Application authorizing construction of the CEP from Feb. 7, 2022, through Feb. 16, 2022.
The ACC heard public comment on the Coolidge Expansion Project on March 15, 2022, during the regularly scheduled Open Meeting. To see the video, visit azcc.gov/live under Open Meetings Archives 2022.
