APS, Arizona's largest electric utility, dedicated a new 300-kilowatt solar electric system in Scottsdale, Arizona, in late May. The new facility is supported in part by APS customers through the APS Solar Partners program. APS plans to reach 3 megawatts of installed solar power capacity by the end of 2003. See the APS press release.

A new solar power system was also added in South Jersey in mid-May. A 52-kilowatt solar electric system was installed on the roof of BJ's Wholesale Club in Deptford, New Jersey. The New Jersey Clean Energy Fund provided financial support for the facility. See the Green Mountain Energy Company press release.
