PROTECT CLEAN ENERGYRULES FOR ARIZONA
Tell your representatives to respect the Corporation Commission’s authority
Arizona is close to setting a 100% carbon free electricity standard.
But we’re not there yet.
The state legislature recently introduced new legislation to strip the Corporation Commission of their authority to enact the pending 100% clean energy rules we’ve worked so hard to advance.
Take action: Urge your representatives to respect the Corporation Commission’s clean energy rulemaking authority.
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 expanding Arizona’s Renewable Energy Standard and Tariff (REST) to 100% carbon free electricity by 2050. Under the current REST, only 15% of the electricity sold in the state must come from renewable energy sources by 2025.
This is a huge opportunity for the state to transition to a clean energy future. The 100% standard will deliver broad economic benefits. It will drive new investment in the state.
These clean energy rules include a first-of-its-kind distributed energy storage target. They also include a strong energy efficiency standard and a more transparent utility planning processes.
But the state legislature is trying to strip the Corporation Commission of their authority to advance these clean energy rules.
