MESA, AZ (CBS5) -

A new solar power plant launched in Mesa that will be used to power some of ASU's campus.

SRP and SunPower Corporation dedicated a 1 megawatt power plant at ASU's Polytechnic campus.

It's the first commercial deployment of a tracking system that concentrates the sun's power seven times over.

ASU is purchasing the power produced at the plant from SRP for the use at its polytechnic campus.
