Located in Pinal County, Arizona, a 0.25 mile transmission line will connect the Eleven Mile Solar Center to the Pinal Central Substation. Through this 235 kV electrical line, electricity generated by solar energy will be transmitted onto the Arizona grid. An estimated 900,000 MWh of energy will be generated annually, or enough to power 63,800 Arizona homes each year. The Eleven Mile Solar Center will help meet the energy needs of the state by providing clean, flexible, solar-powered electricity
Eleven Mile Solar Center LLC received a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility (CEC) from the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) for the proposed transmission line (also referred to as a gen-tie line), which will be constructed within a new dedicated utility ROW. The project area is currently heavily developed with transmission lines, and portions of the 0.25-mile-long gen-tie line may consist of both underground and above ground segments.
