About the project
Located in Pinal County, Arizona, the 300 MW Eleven Mile Solar Center will use over 850,000 solar panels mounted on single-axis tracker arrays that follow the sun to generate electricity. Almost 63,800 Arizonan homes can be powered with more than 900,000 MWh of energy generated annually. The Eleven Mile Solar Center helps meet the energy needs of the state by providing clean, flexible, solar-powered electricity.
The Eleven Mile Solar Center is a long-term asset for Pinal County. Located on over 2,000 acres, the center will create long-term value for landowners hosting the project while stimulating the local economy. The project will generate tens of millions in new tax revenue over the project life without adding new costs for services. Tax revenue will benefit Coolidge USD, Casa Grande ESD, Casa Grande UHS, the Central Arizona College, the City of Eloy, the City of Coolidge, and Pinal County. In addition the project will create at least 300 jobs during construction and will require ongoing support for operations and maintenance over the 30 year estimated life of the project.
