The second phase of the SunAnza solar array construction is well underway in the fields next to the Anza Electric Cooperative Inc.’s office in Anza. Construction started in July, with expected completion in November. “The second phase of the SunAnza project not only adds more generation to our portfolio, it also provides the capability to back up a part of our system in the event our incoming transmission goes down,” Kevin Short, general manager of AEC, said. “While this is still only a portion of the backup capability we need, it’s a great start down the road of better independence and reliability. Stay tuned for more to come.” The second phase of Sun Anza construction is complicated, yet right on schedule.
