Coal and Nuclear Power

PSR Arizona was awarded a grant by PSR National in 2010 to address the Code Black project, opposing coal and educating the community about the hazards of coal ash.   We worked with the Arizona Corporation Commission (our utility commission) to develop a ruling that requires energy utilities to monetize the cost of human health, environmental and water "externalities" (hidden  and previously unaccounted for costs) in energy production costs.  We also very actively promote renewable energy expansion in Arizona, especially solar power to replace coal mining and combustion and any further nuclear power development.   

We are also available and are called on to speak on the health effects of coal, the costs, dangers and risks of nuclear power, and the benefits and co-benefits of renewable energies as participants in various community and political forums.
