Randy Miller, who recently established the website Stop Raising Prices, spoke about the impending hit to the Arizona economy that SRP's solar job killing proposal will mean to each of us. Event organizer Patrick Barrett and Larky Hodges also spoke, after Tempe city councilwoman Lauren Kuby opened with words of thanks for what Rooftop Solar has meant to her and our state up until this point.
The most important take away from tonight's event is that we need a lot more concerned citizens to show up Thursday morning (February 26) around 8:45 for the SRP Board meeting to make it very clear that approving the proposal to kill Rooftop Solar will not be without massive repercussions.
Because Salt River Project is a political subdivision of the State of Arizona, and because it is subject to Arizona Revised Statutes, the people of Arizona have a potent tool available -- direct democracy (aka citizen initiatives) -- to eventually intervene.
