250,000 solar roofs
If Arizona has more solar potential than any other state in the nation, why are we getting so much of our energy from coal and gas, which pollute our air, threaten the health of our kids, and fuel global warming? We have a plan to change that and see a quarter million solar roofs in Arizona by 2020.
Let's move forward on clean energy
It's the 21st century. The barriers to solar in Arizona are falling. Prices are dropping. Installers are making it more convenient to go solar. It's no surprise solar is growing. But we still have a long way to go. Despite having more solar potential than any other state, we still get only 2 percent of our energy from the sun.
Unfortunately, some utilities are standing in the way of more solar, and that's why we need the support of Arizonans like you.
We have a statewide plan to go solar
Across the state, we're building support to go solar from citizens like you, clean energy businesses, industry leaders and advocates. We're also organizing local campaigns in places like Tucson, Tempe and Phoenix to put the policies in place to get us to 250,000 solar roofs statewide—ensuring that we get at least 10 percent of our energy from the sun.
By showing Gov. Jan Brewer, other state officials and local leaders a broad base of support from the public, businesses and cities across Arizona, we can make this vision a reality.
Our big chance to take the lead
Our staff members have been knocking on doors to educate the public about the potential for rooftop solar power in Arizona, raising thousands of voices in support of our campaign. We're also conducting research, highlighting the benefits of solar in the media, testifying in the state Legislature in Phoenix and advocating for clean energy policies at the Arizona Corporation Commission. With your support, we can put Arizona on a path to power our lives with clean energy and become a solar leader in the U.S.
Tell the Arizona Corporation Commission that we need more clean energy in Arizona, not less.
- The solar industry provides nearly 5,000 jobs to Arizonans.
- From 2010 to 2011, jobs in the solar sector grew 10 times faster than the rest of the economy.
- By making our homes, businesses and other buildings just 20% more efficient, we could save enough energy each year to power almost 100 million homes.
