Ensuring That All Communities Benefit Equitably from the Clean Energy Transition ft. APS

The transition to clean energy must also include a concerted effort to help coal communities successfully make the shift to an economy that can thrive without fossil fuel revenues. Ann Becker, VP of Sustainability at Arizona Public Service, talks about the dramatic impact coal plant closures are having on the communities in which they have long operated and how utilities and the federal government have a responsibility to take action to ensure these communities are not left behind. She details the multi-year commitment APS has made to ensure the Navajo and Hopi Nations are able to successfully transition from their reliance on coal to a renewable energy future as a model and a call to action for utilities nationwide.
