Energize the Environment by Promoting Energy Efficiency and Clean Renewables
The main focus of the Grand Canyon Chapter’s energy work is to encourage the use of renewable energy resources and to promote additional energy efficiency and conservation. Our objective is to transition from coal and gas in order to reduce global warming, pollution, and other environmental degradation related to reliance on fossil fuels and nuclear energy.
Get involved and take action to support clean renewable energy and energy efficiency and to oppose dirty energy sources. Check out our latest action alerts. For information about other ways to get involved, upcoming meetings and events, and more, please contact Sandy Bahr at (602) 253-8633 or email@example.com.

We are working with other advocacy organizations to promote greater energy efficiency efforts in Arizona. Our efforts have helped to produce one of the strongest electric utility energy efficiency standards in the country – utilities must achieve 22 percent energy savings by 2020 – and have helped to convince Salt River Project to increase its commitment to energy efficiency. (SRP is not regulated by the Arizona Corporation Commission and, therefore, is not subject to the energy efficiency standard.)
