SUPPORT SOLARIN ARIZONA
Make your voice heard for rooftop solar and storage.
The Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) is considering one of the most forward-looking energy proposals in the country that would spur thousands of jobs and reduce utility rates by enabling homeowners across Arizona to install batteries along with rooftop solar systems. Thursday, the Commission votes on rules that, if adopted, will make Arizona the national leader in the installation of home batteries and rooftop solar. This policy will create thousands of jobs, support clean energy investment, avoid the construction of millions of dollars of utility infrastructure saving Arizonans millions of dollars, and give Arizona homeowners the power to install the latest technologies to help back up the grid and store their own energy. They are voting on this proposal on Thursday, July 30th and need to hear from you!
WHAT'S AT STAKE
The Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) is an elected, five-member board. It sets rules for our state’s electric system. Commissioners are considering an expansion of Arizona’s Renewable Energy Standard and Tariff (REST). Under REST, 15% of the electricity sold in the state must come from renewable energy sources by 2025.
We are close to meeting this goal. The commission wants to go further. Commissioners have indicated they will enact a 100% clean energy by 2050 standard.
Commissioners should use this increase as an opportunity to help more Arizonans take their homes solar.
They can do this by including a 10% carve out for electricity that comes from distributed energy sources, like rooftop solar.
