Arizona utility APS to exit coal by 2031, be carbon-free by 2050

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Arizona Republic:Arizona Public Service Co. will produce all of its electricity from carbon-free sources by 2050 and will get 45% of its power from renewable sources like solar and wind by the end of this decade, the company announced Wednesday.Meeting those goals will mean closing the company’s coal-fired Four Corners Power Plant in New Mexico by 2031, seven years ahead of schedule. The APS coal-fired Cholla Power Plant in Arizona already is scheduled to close in 2025.APS gets about 22% of its energy from those coal plants today.In addition to the energy it gets from coal today, APS gets just over one-fourth of its power from natural gas, meaning it will have to replace nearly half its energy supply by the midpoint of this century to meet the new goal.APS also runs the largest nuclear plant in the country, the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station, which is about 50 miles west of downtown Phoenix. It gets about 25% of its energy from the plant, which is co-owned by several utilities from California to Texas.[Ryan Randazzo]More: APS will eliminate carbon emissions by 2050 and close coal plant ahead of schedule, CEO says Arizona utility APS to exit coal by 2031, be carbon-free by 2050last_img read more
