    E.On’s Iron Horse Energy Storage and Solar Project is actually the first project for phase two of The Solar Zone on the northwest side of the UA Tech Park.
    Iron Horse, which consists of a 10-megawatt capacity lithium-ion battery-storage facility and an accompanying 2-megawatt photovoltaic array, is also the first North American energy storage project for E.On, which is part of a German-based company that is one of Europe’s biggest electric utilities.
    The phase-two projects will focus on energy storage; grid optimization and microgrids; distributed solar systems; and integrated and embedded solar materials.
