Solar groups endorse Arizona’s renewable energy Proposition 127


 Solar businesses and advocates today announced their support for Proposition 127 on the November ballot, which would increase the amount of Arizona’s power that comes from renewable sources to 50 percent by 2030. Net Zero Solar, SunHarvest Solar, and the Vote Solar Action Fund are urging a ‘YES’ vote on the renewable energy proposition, which will expand economic opportunity, support small businesses, and improve public health in Arizona.

“Thanks to innovation and the individual choices of thousands of consumers who have demanded new energy choices, solar energy has become one of the most affordable energy resources across the U.S. That’s especially true here in sunny Arizona,” said Louis Woofenden with Tucson-based Net Zero Solar. “It just makes sense that Arizona should be using more of our plentiful and affordable renewable energy resources to power our homes, businesses and communities with a ‘yes’ vote on Proposition 127.”

“It’s no surprise to me the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau recently put solar installers at the top of the list of fastest growing occupations,” said Brandon Cheshire, owner and founder of Phoenix-based SunHarvest Solar. “We support Proposition 127 because increasing our state’s use of reliable, renewable energy will mean more jobs for Arizonans, cleaner air for our children and future generations, and a more resilient power grid for all of us.”

“Arizona is one of the sunniest states in the nation, and the people of Arizona overwhelmingly support putting more of that plentiful sunshine to work supporting good jobs and healthier families. Proposition 127 gives Arizonans the opportunity to vote for that brighter energy future at the ballot this fall,” said Art Terrazas, Interior West director at the Vote Solar Action Fund. “We are proud to be speaking up for Proposition 127 and a stronger solar powered Arizona with these local business leaders and community stakeholders across the state.”

Proposition 127 on Arizona’s November 6 ballot will gradually increase the amount of electricity that the state’s utilities get from renewable sources, like solar and wind, to 50 percent by 2030, and increase from just 15 percent today. For more information about Proposition 127, visit:
