In 1997, the City of Scottsdale joined the Arizona Public Service (APS) Solar Partners Program. At that time, the available role for the City was to provide facilities or land where APS, at no charge to them and no cost to the City, could install solar power generating systems. The solar power generated from these systems is added to the power grid where it became available for Scottsdale residents who subscribe to the Solar Partners Program. The first system installed was an 8,000 square-foot, 34-kW PV roofing system on employee parking lot carports at the City’s Via Linda Campus. The Civic Center Library and Mustang Library are each host to a 2-kW PV system. The Water Campus system is comprised of two 150-kW single access tracking systems mounted on water storage reservoirs. The City has installed numerous PV systems since these first few. These subsequent installations have been integrated into the host buildings' power supply.
