Solar Supportors Rally

    June 26, 2017 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am
    corner of Congress St. x Granada Ave., Tucson

    “Solar supporters will be taking their message to the streets of Tucson

    Who: Solar Supporters
    What: Rally in support of Solar
    When 9am, Monday June 26
    Where: Corner of Congress and Granada – downtown Tucson

    We will be urging the Arizona Corporation Commission to reject Tucson Electric Power’s attempts to stifle energy choice and competition by imposing fees on rooftop solar customers.

    TEP is proposing an additional $25 to $30 in monthly charges for new solar customers, in addition to a significant reduction in the amount paid to rooftop solar customers for any electricity they send back to the grid.

    An Arizona Corporation Commission hearing on TEP’s request will begin at a June 26th hearing at 10:00 a.m., at the Commission’s offices, Room 222, 400 West Congress in Tucson.

    Before the hearing at 9am solar supporters will be gathering at the corner of Congress and Granada. I will be there – will you join your neighbors in supporting solar in Tucson?
