Empire Southwest began generating solar power at two locations in Mesa and Apache Junction last week, becoming the second largest commercial solar system in Salt River Project territory. A rooftop-mounted solar power system at Empire Precision Machining in Mesa is expected to provide 30 percent of the facility’s power demand. A ground-mounted array at the Empire Rental operation in Apache Junction is installed on an otherwise unusable part of the property, and is expected to generate 30 percent of the site’s power.

“We are committed to using cleaner, more sustainable domestic power resources wherever possible,” said Empire Chairman and CEO Jeff Whiteman in a statement.

The project was made possible in part by incentives from the SRP EarthWise Solar commercial program.
