“Tucson Electric Power is attempting to cast a shadow on solar choice and energy independence by imposing fees on rooftop solar customers. That’s why we are asking Tucson area residents to turn off your lights on August 30th at 8:30pm.
It’s called Lights Out 830.

    Turn your lights out right now at 8:30 p.m. or show up at Granada/Congress St. intersection. I’m turning off my lights and using a candle. Lights Out 830.
