(175 MW) Solar power plant on landfill could benefit thousands (AZ)

A Phoenix panel wants a Houston-based company with Valley ties to build a solar-energy plant at Phoenix's only active landfill.

Tessera has already partnered with the Salt River Project on Maricopa Solar LLC, a 1.5-megawatt project in Peoria that will have 60 dishes running by January.

The Phoenix project, to be located off Arizona 85 in Buckeye, calls for 7,000 SunCatcher dishes, each 38 feet wide by 40 feet tall.

The project would generate 175 megawatts, enough to power about 27,000 Valley homes.
