FRV Picture Rocks
Solar System | Marana, AZ
FRV Picture Rocks is a single-axis tracking system located on a 305-acre site owned by Tucson Water just west of Tucson. The solar panels are mounted on horizontal-axis trackers that rotate with the sun’s position in order to optimize electricity production. The system uses no water to generate power.
TEP is purchasing power from SunEdison through a 20-year purchase power agreement (PPA). The system is generating enough energy to meet the annual needs of approximately 3,500 homes.
