Arizona Public Service (APS) and McCarthy Building Cos. have started the permitting process for the Hyder II Solar Power Plant, a new solar photovoltaic facility located in Hyder, Ariz.

APS selected McCarthy to engineer, procure the materials and construct the 14 MW facility. The project is APS' sixth under its AZ Sun Program, which is expected to add 200 MW of PV plants across the state by 2015, says Barbara Lockwood, APS' general manager of energy innovation.

Construction on Hyder II is expected to begin in April. Located on 240 acres, the project will include more than 71,000 single-axis tracker PV panels. Commercial operation is expected to take place in late 2013.
