Bids sought for largest solar installation

Already the nation’s largest municipally owned user of wind energy, San Antonio’s CPS Energy signaled its intent to build what would be the largest solar installation in the United States, notifying bidders that an originally proposed 50 megawatt project has been expanded to potentially 400 megawatts.

The project would be 4 times larger than what is currently the largest solar installation in the world, a 97 megawatt project in Ontario, Canada.
