The Grand Canyon State

Arizona, the Grand Canyon State, ranks number 19 in residential prices compared to 52 other U.S. states averaging  $10.97 Megawatts per hour. The largest nuclear plant is in Palo Verde, Arizona with the second highest rated capacity of any power plant in the U.S. resulting in exporting large amounts of electricity to neighboring states, particularly to markets in Southern California.

Did you know? Arizona also has the largest solar telescope in the U.S. located at Kitts Peak National Observatory in the city of Sells.

Precipitation in the state of Arizona varies from an annual average of 18.31 inches in Flagstaff to 7.64 inches annually in Phoenix. The weather ranges quite drastically as well, with temperatures at 75 degrees in the desert to 45 degrees in the high country on the same day.

Wow Arizona is dry, but the cactus and herds of cattle don’t seem to mind it!
