Greetings!

AriSEIA hit the ground running in 2019! We have planned an aggressive schedule of meetings with State Legislators, Arizona Corporation Commissioners and staff, SRP, and regulated utilities to represent AriSEIA members on rate setting, interconnection rules, and other renewable energy legislative bills and actions. You will see legislative alerts to keep you informed and we invite you to attend and/or contribute to important meetings.

Legislative Alerts:

This year, we will be sending you legislative alerts and who to contact with your concerns. PLUS, in order to better serve you, our members, we are actively seeking your input on any repercussions you may be experiencing from last year’s ACA Tax Sunset bill. We are currently trying to chase down all the particulars.

Monthly Networking events:

Our next networking event is at Ocotillo in midtown Phoenix on Tuesday, March 19th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. RSVP here. These networking events are proving to be a fun way to meet fellow members, bring new potential members, exchange contact information, discuss important issues, or just come and enjoy the hors d’oeuvres with solar friends.

AriSEIA Solar Legislative Day:

The AriSEIA Solar Legislative Day at the State Capitol is taking place on Tuesday, April 2nd from 11:00am to 2:00pm. We will be in the Rose Garden mingling and serving ice cream to the legislators. This is an important opportunity to be introduced to House Representatives and Senators from the floor and have an opportunity to speak one on one with our elected officials.

2019 Arizona Energy Future Conference: Innovation, Technology, and Economic Opportunity – May 8-10:

Save the date! The 2019 Arizona Energy Future Conference will be held May 8-10 at the ASU Student Pavilion in Tempe, AZ. We’re currently creating an impressive list of speakers and panelists along with time for dynamic interactive discussions with energy industry experts, policy leaders, and attendees. Stay tuned for more details coming soon, as well as a call for presenters & panelists!

Your input is important to help us represent you and your business interests. Please contact me with any ideas or needs at: lucy@ariseia.org. I look forward to seeing you soon!
