Phoenix, Arizona, April 25, 2016
With a unanimous vote, the AriSEIA Board of Directors voted to endorse the Arizona Solar Energy Freedom Act (ASEFA) and encourages all of its members and those interested in the ongoing growth of third-party distributed energy for residential, commercial and industrial customers and fair compensation for energy delivered to the electrical grid to do the same.
“The Arizona Solar Energy Freedom Act” preserves the right of Arizonans to install solar on their properties and ensures they are paid a fair rate of return for the electricity they sell to the utilities,” said AriSEIA President Tom Harris. “Even though negotiations and hearings are happening with utilities and the Corporation Commission, none of those agreements will protect the consumer’s right to choose how or from whom they purchase electricity. The ASEFA makes it clear Arizonans support energy choice and fair compensation to system owners.”
Lucy Mason, AriSEIA Executive Director and former Republican State Representative, agrees. “Less than 12 hours after this initiative was announced, APS was already working to undermine it by having anti-solar legislators create a fast-tracked opposing ballot proposition, written with the input of legislative attorneys. This way APS can avoid the costly signature-gathering required in the voter initiative process, and instead use the taxpayer-funded legislative process for free. The legislature should not be doing APS’ bidding.”
AriSEIA encourages its members to sign up and support the ASEFA campaign at http://yesonazsolar.com or on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/YesOnSolar.az/
AriSEIA is a non-profit 501(c)(6) trade association.
