Washington Gas Energy Systems Inc. has signed a contract with Tucson Electric Power (TEP) to build, own and operate a 1 MW solar array that will provide renewable energy to the utility in Tucson, Ariz.

The facility will be owned and operated by Washington Gas Energy Systems under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with TEP. Cogenra Solar developed and designed the project and will manage procurement and construction.

According to Washington Gas, the project is expected to be complete in April 2014.

Washington Gas says the output will help TEP meet or exceed the mandates of Arizona's renewable energy standard, which requires electric utilities to increase their use of renewable energy each year until it accounts for 15% of their power in 2025.
