On Aug. 9, the Arizona Corporation Commission will vote on the Unisource Energy (UNSE) proposal to adjust its rates — its vote will either discourage its customers from choosing rooftop solar or help to make sure Arizona continues toward a clean-energy future.
The utility regulators’ decision on the proposal will not only impact UNSE customers, it also has the potential to affect the future of clean energy, including solar, and public health for the entire state.
