Split SRP Board Approves Expansion of Gas Flaring Plant

SRP Associate General Manager Kelly Barr said the expansion would provide the grid a “reliability backbone” and allow SRP to add more renewable energy. Opponents of the plan also questioned whether SRP was rushing approve a project announced in late August, but the board rejected a motion to delay the decision for a month while the board investigates alternatives.

The board voted 8-6 Monday for a $953 million expansion of the Coolidge Generating Station after hearing hours of testimony dominated by opposition to the project, the Arizona Republic reported. Opponents mainly focused on carbon emissions that would contribute to climate change while SRP officials said the planned additional generators’ quick-start capability would give the utility flexibility to include more power generated by wind and solar.
