“Arizona Public Service joins power companies in all regions of our nation that are committing to achieve 100% clean power by 2050. Arizona has an urgent stake in eliminating climate pollution. Hotter temperatures pose a clear and present danger to Arizona’s people, its water, its environment and its economy. The Arizona Public Service commitment to 100% clean power will also accelerate Arizona’s drive to clean zero emitting vehicles.

“We urge Arizona Public Service to ensure its projected 2030 climate pollution reductions are a floor to build from in achieving faster and deeper near-term pollution cuts, in order to protect the health and well-being of all who are afflicted by rising temperatures and a changing climate.”
