Hyder II Solar Plant
The APS Hyder II Solar Plant was constructed as part of APS’s Arizona Sun Program. In our role as the EPC contractor for Arizona Public Service Co., McCarthy provided permitting, design, procurement and construction for the entire project.
The completed project is a 14 Megawatt ac/21 MWdc tracking photovoltaic plant that connects to the APS distribution system at 12.47 kV and supplies power to the local APS loads. The project was developed on a 240-acre site previously used as agricultural land.
McCarthy had an extensive self-perform scope on this project, including: concrete forming, pile driving, setting tracker components and setting modules.
