Arizona’s electric restructuring has been delayed for almost 20 years. Its time has come for all Arizonans, especially Arizona’s electricity consumers.
Opening up Arizona’s electricity market to competition would allow families and businesses to shop for the electricity plan that best fits their needs.
The commission voted 5-0 at a meeting Thursday to set up a two-step process with the first being the vote on whether to move forward with retail competition.
The Arizona Corporation Commission has taken small steps that could eventually lead to opening up the state's electric markets.
The Arizona Corporation Commission is taking its first, albeit tentative, steps to examine whether to deregulate the state’s electric markets and introduce open competition for consumers.
