50MW Power Purchase Agreement Approved for Largest New Mexico Solar Power Plant

June 6th, 2013 | by pressroom

The solar array will realize immediate and very significant water savings over gas-fired or coal-fired generating plants and will also have zero air emissions. The proposed Macho Springs solar power plant will generate enough clean energy to power more than 18,000 average New Mexico homes, which use about 669 kilowatt hours of electricity per month. The project will displace more than 40,000 metric tons of CO2, the equivalent of taking 7,500 cars off the road, and will displace water consumption annually (more than 340,000 metric tons)
