Solar Supporters Speak Out Against APS Plan To Tax Solar

(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.)  Members of T.U.S.K., representatives from the solar energy industry, solar energy customers,  Sun City residents, and T.U.S.K. Chairman Barry Goldwater Jr. will be participating in a news conference Tuesday July 16th at 10a.m. on the Senate Lawn at the Arizona State Capitol at 1700 West Washington in Phoenix.

The goal will be to stand up for solar energy and energy choice, and to stand against the deep-pocketed sneak attacks APS has waged against solar energy.

APS currently has two options before the Arizona Corporation Commission, either of which would wipe out rooftop solar savings, decimate the solar industry in Arizona, and cement APS’ status as a utility monopoly.

T.U.S.K (Tell Utilities Solar won’t be Killed) was formed to stand for energy choice and energy independence.

Who: Barry Goldwater Jr., Solar Supporters, Rooftop Solar Customers
What: T.U.S.K. news conference in defense of solar energy
When:  10a.m.Tuesday July 16th
Where: Senate Lawn at the Arizona State Capitol

T.U.S.K. believes that rooftop solar is similar to a charter school—it provides a competitive alternative to the monopoly. Monopoly utilities aren’t known for reducing costs or for driving business innovation, but the Arizona solar industry is. Solar companies have a track record of aggressive cost reduction in Arizona. The more people use rooftop solar, the less power they need to buy from the utilities. Energy independence for Arizonans means smaller profits for the utilities, so APS is doing everything it can to stop the spread of independent solar.
