Ambitious, Affordable Clean Energy Goals
20 Percent of Power from Wind and Solar by 2020
UniSource Energy Services is expanding wind and solar energy resources at a rapid but reasonable pace that allows us to maintain affordable rates and reliable service.
We’re working to deliver 20 percent of our power from renewable resources by 2020, surpassing the 15 percent requirement that must be achieved by 2025 under Arizona’s Renewable Energy Standard. By 2020, we’ll have more than 125 megawatts (MWs) of wind and solar resources online, enough to power more than 26,000 homes.
Our plans preserve safe, reliable and affordable service as we transition to a cleaner, greener and better balanced generating portfolio.
Our Energy Future
We’re committed to providing safe, affordable, reliable and sustainable service to the communities we serve – cities and towns that both our customers and our company’s employees call home. As Arizona grows, UniSource will deliver electric service to tens of thousands of additional customers using cleaner generating resources.
To support our expanded use of wind and solar power, we plan to add 20 MW of flexible energy storage systems to our infrastructure over the next 10 years. We’re also helping customers go solar with energy from large, local UniSource solar arrays and assisting those who want to add rooftop solar power systems on their homes and businesses.
