The Alliance for Industrial Efficiency signed onto a business letter along with Ameresco, Inc., Arizona State University, Employers for Renewable Energy, the National Association of Energy Service Companies, Salesforce, and Symantec regarding SRP’s 2035 sustainability process.
As major businesses, institutions, and employers in Arizona, these signatories are committed to increasing the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency in Arizona. Given their preferences for clean and affordable energy resources, they:
Urge SRP to pursue a resource portfolio that aligns with these objectives and to adopt a robust 2035 carbon emissions reduction target that is science-based to reduce absolute carbon emissions by at least 53 percent below 2005 levels by 2035.
Further recommend that SRP adopt interim targets to ensure accountability and adopt a stretch goal to reduce emissions by 63 percent below 2005 levels by 2035.
Also support the adoption of strong companion policies for renewable energy, energy efficiency, demand response, and electric vehicles that will help SRP to deliver on its carbon commitments.
