New welcome to solar, wind and geothermal energy in Arizona

After all the years of lip service about the potential for alternative energy production in Arizona, especially solar, it’s now down to brass tacks.

Arizona Corporation Commission members Bill Mundell, Barry Wong, Kris Mayes and Jeff Hatch-Miller voted Tuesday for a measure, and Mike Gleason against, to require that 15 percent of the state’s total energy production be from renewable energy sources by 2025. A significant amount of that 15 percent – about one-third – by 2011 will come from so-called distributed energy, which is electricity produced by residential or non-utility-owned firms.
