The non-profit that raises money for Arizona State University is defending the university’s support for solar energy in the wake of reports it donated to a political nonprofit that opposes rooftop solar.

The ASU Foundation accepted money from Arizona Public Service Co. in 2013 and the same year donated to a political group that helped defeat pro-solar candidates in last year’s elections.

The ASU Foundation accepted $181,000 from the non-profit APS Foundation and made a $100,000 donation to a political group called Save Our Future Now, which played heavily in the political campaigns last year for the Arizona Corporation Commission, which regulates utilities.
