The Arizona Corporation Commission regulates public utilities in Arizona, including electricity, gas, water, and sewer. In 2006, the Commission established a state policy that requires electricity providers to obtain 15 percent of their power from renewable sources by 2025.
Will Arizona continue its transition to renewable energy sources like solar and wind? With two seats open on this five-seat commission, Arizona's renewable future hinges on the outcome of the November 2nd election. Candidates running for the Commission will give their perspectives on Arizona's Renewable Energy Standard. Meet them and see where they stand on this critical issue.
