Sun Streams 2 is one of four Arizona projects that Longroad acquired from First Solar. The PV and storage portfolio totals roughly 900 MW with the potential for 1-2 GWh of battery storage.
The two companies will work together to deliver a safe, sustainable, and cost-effective lithium-ion battery recycling solution for end-of-life energy storage systems.
Horse trading was needed to reverse an earlier vote that rejected a package of clean energy goals. The new goal goes back into the rulemaking process and a final vote.
The collector is built with a low-cost holographic optical element and a diffuser and can be easily embedded into conventional PV modules, according to its creators.
The plan took three years to put together and won initial approval by regulators last November. Rejection means that renewable energy standards adopted 15 years ago remain in effect.
The utility is expanding an earlier RFP and wants to procure up to 150 MW of solar PV capacity by early 2023.

The projects include 200 MW slated to enter service in June and 700 MW in early-stage development.
