In recent news, the Central Arizona Project (CAP) made a huge commitment to the solar industry by signing a twenty-year Power Purchase Agreement with solar company AZ Solar 1. This will be documented as the lowest price for solar in the United States. Connecting Arizona’s most precious resource, water, with its most abundant resource, the sun, is an important step toward a clean energy future for Arizona.
The Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) plays an important role in our everyday lives. The commission regulates utilities (like water, electric, and gas), which means the decisions they make have a huge impact on everything from how much you pay for electricity each month, to the kinds of energy used to produce this electricity. Arizona is one of a handful of states that elects our corporation commission, which provides us the opportunity to elect candidates who are dedicated to a brighter, greener, and more resilient future for energy in our state.
Nonrenewable energy can have damaging effects on the environment and those who live in it. Renewable energy sources can combat environmental hazards and benefit communities. Here’s how solar energy can help keep the Earth clean and aid in public health:
We are thrilled to share that two of the five clean energy candidates in yesterday’s SRP election won seats on the board. This is a great step forward for renewable energy in Arizona!
The future of clean energy in Arizona might be looking brighter come April, as five new candidates are running for seats on the SRP Board of Directors in the current election which ends on April 3, 2018.

2. Solar Water Heater
3. Solar Air Conditioning
This clean energy solution is perfect for Arizona: take the energy from the hot sun and cool your house down – what’s not to love? The solar air conditioner works in the same way as the solar water heater, but is much more practical in the Arizona heat. Since they function on the same principal, you can even combine your solar water heater and solar air conditioning systems for a 2 for 1 energy-saving whammy. Check out the video here.
