“Nick Arnold is an Arizona native who moved to Tucson to attend the University of Arizona. As an undergraduate minoring in Environmental Studies, Nick interned with the Students for Sustainability on the Energy & Climate Committee where he helped organize a Power Dialog among students from ASU and U of A and state experts to discuss clean energy and how Arizona would meet the Clean Power Plan requirements. Through the Dialog, he met Kirsten Engel and later became an intern to her successful 2016 campaign for the Arizona House.
He has served as DGT’s First Vice Chair since being elected interim mid-2017 and worked as Representative Kirsten Engel’s Campaign Manager for her 2018 re-election. Nick received his BS in Systems Engineering in 2017 and is now pursuing a Master’s in Public Policy at U of A with a focus on energy law and policy.
Given the defeat of Prop 127, Sandra Kennedy’s election to the Corporation Commission, and the increased attention to the role of utilities in politics, Nick will discuss what could come next for Arizona’s Energy Transition.”
