The Real AZ Corridor Is Arizona’s Energy Corridor
The Real AZ Corridor has a future as one of the premier energy producing corridors in the country. Energy potential is real and abundant here, with ground-floor opportunities in wind, solar, biomass, future forest and energy storage and distribution.
Few areas are as well positioned to take advantage of renewable energy technologies, evolving energy development and distribution processes, Federal incentives and funding and venture capital investment.
Dry Lake Wind Farm near Snowflake is Arizona’s first turbine-powered, commercial scale energy project. Phase II was recently completed, doubling output capacity and output. Solar testing, production and storage are in their infancy. New processes for biomass and reclamation energy production are being born here.
The Real AZ Corridor is also home to Arizona’s only recycled paper plant and a company that uses saline water to grow marine algae for pharmaceutical manufacturing
Three modern and expanding coal-fired plants power the region, including projects by Arizona Public Service (APS) between Winslow and Holbrook, Salt River Project (SRP) near St. Johns and Tucson Electric Power in Springerville.
The Real AZ Corridor’s emerging energy future offers the promise of lower operating costs and energy assurance and the security that comes from having access to diverse — and sustainable — energy sources.
