Commissioner Outlines Fiscal Plan to Obtain Clean Energy in Arizona

PHOENIX — Commissioner Andy Tobin expands his recent Arizona Energy Modernization Plan and proposes a cost benefit analysis for the clean energy policy be undertaken by the state’s utility consumer advocate. In his letter to the Corporation Commission’s online docket Friday, Commissioner Tobin thanked Chairman Tom Forese for his swift response to the Commission’s energy plan discussion last week when the Chairman directed staff to start gathering information on the topic through a Notice of Inquiry. Commissioner Tobin also outlined a fiscal path forward.

“I am requesting that the Residential Utility Consumer Office conduct a full audit and benefit-cost analysis of the Arizona Energy Modernization Plan in comparison to the costs associated with the current Integrated Resource Plans’ specifically their 15-year forecast, and the recent ‘Renewable Ballot Initiative’ calling for 50% renewable energy by 2030,” wrote Tobin. “This analysis should not be considered a roadblock for initiating the rulemaking process and should continue parallel to the Notice of Inquiry issued by Chairman Forese as well as a formal vote.”

Commissioner Tobin repeated his request for the Commission’s approval of the energy plan during the next Commission public meeting. Currently, those dates could occur on the February 22 Open Meeting contingency date or at the March 13 Open Meeting.
