SRP's Northern Arizona Coal Plant One of the Biggest Carbon Emitters in the Country
SRP's Northern Arizona Coal Plant One of the Biggest Carbon Emitters in the Country

nav2An electric train delivers 240 cars of coal to the Navajo Generating Station each day, dumping the black fuel into a pile roughly twice the size of the Walmart shopping center in nearby Page.

Each day the plant burns 24,000 tons of that coal, and in doing so, creates nearly double that amount of carbon dioxide pollution, making it the third-largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in the country.

Over the years, upgrades have reduced the amount of other pollutants released by the plant's three generators. But the only way to reduce carbon emissions, which gain atomic mass on release, is to reduce how often the plant runs.

Apple's Secret Solar Plant in Arizona Could Power 12,500 Homes

applesolarApple Inc. has built a 300-acre solar power plant in Florence to make up for the electricity used in its Mesa data center, and Salt River Project finally released details of the secretive project Tuesday.

Apple wants its customers to know that when they ask the Siri app on their phones for directions, they aren't contributing to global climate change. The company has a goal of generating enough clean energy from multiple facilities to compensate for the power its global factories and other operations draw from the power grid.

Apple said in 2015 when it announced its command center project in Mesa that it would run the facility with solar power, but until now, the Cupertino, Calif.-based iPhone maker hasn't provided any details of how it would accomplish that.

PHOENIX – Arizona is more than halfway through monsoon season 2016, and the work APS performed in the offseason to harden its power grid has helped to keep the lights on for customers across the state.

APS manages 35,000 square miles – the sixth-largest service territory in the country. With more than half a million power poles, 6,500 miles of transmission power lines, and more than 28,000 miles of distribution lines to serve customers, APS looks for ways to safeguard its equipment to continue providing reliable electric service – no matter what Mother Nature sends our way.
