Good news. The Arizona Supreme Court recently upheld the legality of Arizona’s Renewable Energy Standard and Tariff. An activist group had filed serial legal challenges over the years, and this may finally put the issue to rest. Read about it here.
Note that this decision–and the ACC’s actions–are supported by the overwhelming majority of Arizona’s residents. A recent poll (pdf), among many others, showed that 87% of Arizona voters think the state should choose renewable energy sources like solar and wind over more coal, and 78% would pay at least $5 a month to make that happen.
