Site description

Springerville Generating Station is a 1,560-MW facility located in Springerville, Arizona in Apache County. Springerville is owned by the Tucson Electric Power Company and began operations in 1985. The station consists of four coal-fired units, with the two newest beginning operations in 2006 and 2009.These two units were the subject of a lawsuit which resulted in a settlement where the plants were constructed with lower emissions and investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency programs. The Ash Landfill acts as the disposal site for primarily fly and bottom ash, regulated under the CCR rule.
