As the sun bears down on Wildcat Country, it will also help power the University of Arizona’s Tucson campus.
Tucson Electric Power is proud to support UArizona’s ambitious plan for greater sustainability. All of the power that TEP provides to the university’s Tucson campus will come from new wind and solar resources by 2021.
Through this partnership, UArizona will become the largest research university in the country with a plan to offset all of its “Scope Two” emissions – those produced by its utility provider. TEP provides about 60 percent of the energy used at UArizona’s Tucson campus, with the rest generated on-site by solar panels and natural gas-fired resources.
