Power for the Central Arizona Projectl currently comes from the
. . . Navajo Generating Station, the oldest coal-fired plant in the USA, and one of the largest.
It is scheduled to be decommissioned in 2019,
. . . which will prevent large quantities of carbon emissions,
. . . entering the atmosphere over Arizona for years to come.
The cost of electricity from that plant now stands at
. . . 5 cents per kWh according to Green Tech Media,
. . . exactly double what electricity from AZ Solar 1 will cost.

What is really interesting,
. . . is that adding battery storage only increases those numbers between
. . . 0.5 and 0.8 cents per kWh
. . . still less than the wholesale cost of electricity from the Navajo Generating Station.
