What the Heck is the AZ Corporation Commission? & Why Should I Care?

Yuma has the WORLD RECORD for the most sunshine!
With all this sun, why isn't AZ the World's Solar Capital?
There are actually articles that ask "Does Arizona Hate Solar Power?"
Doesn't make sense?

Bruce Plenk

Solar consultant and public interest lawyer based in Tucson. He was the Solar Energy Coordinator for the City of Tucson for 6 years. He has appeared before the Arizona Corporation Commission many times as a public witness and as an attorney, primarily on utility rate cases and solar issues. He has also appeared before the Utah Public Service Commission.

Tom Chabin

Tom Chabin served on the Coconino County Planning and Zoning Commission for 5 years, the Tuba City School Board for 3 years, the Coconino County Board of Supervisors for 8 years and in the Arizona House of Representatives from 2007 to 2012 where he was the Ranking Democrat of three Committees: Rules, Ways and Means and Higher Education.
He ran unsuccessfully for the Arizona Corporation Commission in 2016, where his campaign focused on cleaning up the Commission and its close relation to campaign donations from the big utility companies, supporting residential rooftop solar, fighting high salaries for utility executives and improving consumer protection.

In November we will vote to elect 2 or more people to the AZCC.

The Corporation Commission regulates:

  • Utility Rates
  • Solar Energy
  • Private Water Companies
  • Incorporations - both Foreign & Domestic
  • Pipeline & Railroad Safety
