Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Wednesday, August 18th:

Arizona Public Service will operate a new 15-megawatt photovoltaic power plant to be built at Luke Air Force Base in Glendale. APS has contracted with SunPower Corporation to design and build the solar plant, which will be the largest solar installation on U.S government property when completed. The plant’s 15-megawatt capacity is equal to the energy needs of 3,750 Arizona homes, or 50 percent of the base’s energy needs.

Last month’s $350 million IPO of India’s largest microfinance firm, SKS Microfinance Limited, has inspired two prominent microfinance banks to announce similar plans to sell shares to the public. Spandana Sphoorty Financial Limited, India’s second largest MFI, has 4.5 million borrowers while Share Microfin Limited has 3 million clients. The microfinance category is growing rapidly in India and private equity funds can not keep up with the need for more capital.
