What is happening
The Arizona Corporation Commission is a five-member board. Arizona voters elect the board members. It is responsible for regulating utilities and setting energy policy in the state.
Over the past several years, we worked on a package of rules at the commission designed to lower emissions and expand access to solar energy. These “Energy Rules” went through years of development, analysis and compromise.
Recently, the Arizona Corporation Commission voted down the clean energy rules we’ve fought so hard to advance.
The final rules package would have required a 50% reduction in carbon carbon emissions by 2032. Further, the rules would have required a full reduction in emissions by 2070. They would have also required more battery storage systems to be installed in Arizona homes.
The Commissioners’ decision is counter to the vast majority of Arizonans who want more clean energy, like solar.
A recent poll found 80% of Arizonans support getting electricity from solar and other renewable energy sources.
