Renewable-energy advocates are hoping to ask voters to increase Arizona’s use of solar, wind and other alternative-energy resources with a ballot measure.
A coalition of health-care providers and other organizations plans to launch the initiative Tuesday.
Clean Energy for a Healthy Arizona filed paperwork with the Arizona secretary of state on Friday. They hope voters will require electric companies to get half their power supply from renewables by 2030, which would be a significant jump from the existing standard.
