Arizona State University last week received the Solar Partner of the Year award from the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA). ASU was one of four applicants nominated for the award, which was created by SEPA to recognize the value that a solar partner can bring a utility in the development and/or implementation of a solar project.

Jean Humphries, a director within Capital Programs Management at ASU, accepted the award Oct. 18 in Dallas, Texas. Arizona Public Service (APS) nominated ASU for the award.

“Receiving the SEPA award would not have been possible without the support of APS through their Renewable Energy Incentive Program.” Humphries says. “We are grateful to have partnered with APS for the past seven years to help us achieve more than 10 megawatts in our solar program, as we continue to move toward our 20-megawatt goal by 2014.”

The awards ceremony was held in conjunction with Solar Power International 2011, which was presented jointly by SEPA and the Solar Energy Industries Association.
