Arizona solar supporters will rally tomorrow, January 30th, in front of the Arizona Corporation Commission headquarters to oppose cuts to state renewable energy programs made by the ACC.
Katie Radosevic, an organizer with Environment Arizona, one of the event sponsors, hopes the rally will draw attention to recent actions by the ACC, including a cut made last week to Arizona’s commercial solar program.
“That was bad enough,” says Radosevic. “But now they’re planning on lowering Arizona’s renewable energy standard. Arizona should be the nation’s solar leader, but we won’t be if the ACC cuts the programs that have built the industry in Arizona.”
The rally will begin at 9 AM at 1200 West Washington Street (two blocks east of the State Capitol Building). After the rally, the ACC will have a regularly scheduled meeting that is open to the public.
Speakers at the rally will include:
- Sean Monaghan, PEP Solar
- Randy Dunton, Hawkins Design Group
- Jennifer Martin, Arizona Interfaith Power and Light.
