This Wednesday we have an opportunity to make our voices heard at the Commission by submitting public comment in opposition to the Pierce plan to decrease the REST. We are not yet sure whether his amendment will be brought to a vote on Wednesday, however considering the fact that a REST decrease is even being considered, it is our duty as Arizonans to make our voices heard. Pierce tried to sneak his amendment through last Wednesday because he knows it will be widely unpopular if the public finds out about it.
- The first thing you can do is email or call the Commissioners and let them know how you feel about Pierce amendment #2 in the APS REST plans that will cut solar by 11% and effectively decrease the REST below 13.5%. For reference, the docket number is E-01345A-12-0290.
