When NextGen America decided to get involved in Arizona’s energy politics, a lot of people asked me why.

Surely, there are easier places to win. Arizona has been a Republican stronghold as long as anyone can remember.

And you would be hard pressed to find a utility company more hostile to clean energy, more politically connected, or more brazen in wielding those connections than Arizona Public Service, known as APS.

Well, that’s exactly why we chose Arizona.

Climate change is the defining challenge of our time. Our health, our wealth and our planet all depend on our ability to confront and limit it.

From worsening droughts and wildfires to record-breaking heat, it’s already hitting Arizona hard.
