Water Policy Considerations: Deploying Solar Power in the State of Arizona (2010)

This report on concentrating solar power (CSP) was produced by the United States Senate Office of Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona. The report focuses on the effect of CSP on the supply of water in Arizona. The report finds that conventional CSP production would be back overall for the state of Arizona because CSP uses a much larger supply of water than other renewable energy sources. As there are other renewable energy options, the report says that CSP would not be an appropriate solar energy source for Arizona because it would lean to heavily on its water supply.
