Kitchen Sink Studios in downtown Phoenix hosted a mixer on Tuesday about solar-energy policy in Arizona and the Arizona Corporation Commission election, focusing mostly on solar power but also on broader political and environmental issues.
Marcia Busching, one of three Democratic candidates for the commission, attended the informal, roundtable-style event and spoke about her goals and background to about 15 attendees.
Busching said the Corporation Commission needs to keep fair utility rates, create solar jobs, increase renewable-energy production and encourage investment in Arizona’s renewable-energy industry.
“Arizona being an attractive place for solar investment starts with the Arizona Corporation Commission,” she said.
