Tell TEP and ACC: Protect Tucson's Future -- We Need Clean Energy Now!


Take Action - Tucson could be a clean energy leader and bring customers affordable, clean power. But right now, Tucson Electric Power (TEP) wants to increase energy costs to prop up dirty fossil fuel plants!

WHY THIS MATTERS

TEP is asking the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) for permission to increase energy costs on its customers to prop up expensive and harmful gas and coal plants.

TEP's residential customers, including low-income folks, on average, would have to pay over $90 per year more for energy that harms our communities and pollutes our environment. And despite advertising itself as a "green" company, TEP gets over 80% of its power from fossil fuels.

Instead of charging customers more to prop up its dirty, expensive coal and gas plants, TEP should be helping communities transition to clean energy, including Arizona’s potential for a rich solar economy.

We must stop all investments in coal and gas and provide clean, affordable, and local energy to Tucson. The quality of our air and the sustainability of our climate depend on it. Arizona officials must take action to keep Tucson’s electric bills low and clean up our air, including in communities where coal and gas plants are sited.

Take action below -- send a message to Arizona Corporation Commission asking them to protect TEP ratepayers, such as yourself, from fossil fuel pollution and unnecessarily high electricity prices!
