While Covid-19 has fundamentally changed us, what remains constant is our foundation as a technology and innovation hub driven by big ideas, talented entrepreneurs and a welcoming business environment. This is especially true in our renewable energy sector. Renewable energy is a powerful solution to restoring economic security at a time when Arizonans need it most.
Arizona Corporation Commission
Arizona Corporation Commission Commissioner Lea Márquez Peterson issued a letter calling on her fellow Commissioners to pass a policy that would require regulated electric utilities to generate 100% of their power from clean energy resources by 2050.

Autonomous vehicles, electric vehicles, ride sharing, mass transit. With the future of transportation evolving quickly, these words and those still unknown could play into the ways Peoria residents get around in the years to come.
As Arizona continues to foster innovation and grows into a world-class technology hub, approving a new electric vehicle policy such as this is critical for our state to lead our renewable energy transition. It’s imperative the Corporation Commission continues to move us forward, and the utility companies should play a significant role in enabling the growth of Arizona’s transportation electrification market and electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
