Gary Pierce insists he’s a “friend of solar.” Recent actions by the Arizona Corporation Commissioner to cut solar incentives in Arizona, however, make that claim…let’s just say: “questionable.”
Exhibit A: Check out the video below in which Pierce calls the state’s performance-based incentive for renewable power, “a monster” that needs to be tamed.
Pierce offered an amendment last week to lower the amount of renewable power utilities would have to generate — a move that the industry says would “cut them off at the knees,” leading to cancelled projects, slower growth, and lost jobs.
Just imagine the policies Pierce would support if he were an enemy of solar.
