First Solar will provide a solar photovoltaic (PV) array to help power the event, including the Waste Management corporate tent on the 18th hole. The 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open will take place Monday, Jan. 28, through Sunday, Feb. 3, at the TPC Scottsdale.

"It’s great to have First Solar return to this year’s Waste Management Phoenix Open and expand our sustainability efforts," said Tom Altieri, 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open Tournament Chairman. "With First Solar powering a portion of the event, including Waste Management’s corporate tent, with green renewable energy, we further illustrate why we’re the 'Greenest' Show on Grass."

"We’re proud to showcase our technology and support an event that's an important part of the PGA Tour and our community,” said Ted Meyer, First Solar Vice President of Communications.

Meyer said fans at the TPC Scottsdale will have an opportunity to see the same First Solar PV technology used at the recently completed Avra Valley solar project near Tucson and at numerous other utility-scale projects under development in the U.S. southwest.

A custom 1.6 kilowatt mobile demonstration solar array will be deployed adjacent to the Waste Management corporate tent, providing the site with clean, renewable electric power for the run of the tournament. The array was fabricated with assistance from Tucson-based Premiere Builders Group.

The tournament host Thunderbirds have raised more than $80 million for charities, with more than $50 million generated since 2004. The 2013 edition will mark the 78th playing of the event, making it one of the five oldest events on the PGA Tour (not including the major championships). Title sponsor Waste Management, Inc., based in Houston, Texas, is the leading provider of comprehensive waste management services in North America.
