Stakeholder Workshop on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Standards

Support a Renewable Energy Standard of 50 percent renewables by 2030, an Energy Efficiency Standard of 35 percent by 2030, and a just transition from fossil fuels to clean energy and an investment in communities that disparately affected by coal and gas retirements.
Renewable energy is a key component of Arizona’s energy future and offers a great opportunity for our state to develop a stronger and more sustainable economy. In addition to the enormous environmental benefits it affords – clean air, clean water, reduced carbon emissions, and low water use – it is also increasingly economical. According to data compiled and analyzed by Lazard, the cost of solar photovoltaic fell 88 percent from 2009-2018[i] and the cost of wind fell 69 percent.
Energy Efficiency continues to be the most cost-effective and cleanest thing we can do. Investing in energy savings also is good for consumers.
Please attend one or both days of these workshops. Your presence will help demonstrate support for truly clean energy. You can also speak up and comment, if you are willing, but just being there is important. Thank you!
