Kris Mayes on Renewable Energy

Flagstaff, AZ – Prescott native Kris Mayes was elected chairwoman of the Arizona Corporation Commission earlier this week. The low-profile commission makes decisions about high-profile topics: everything from electric power rates to rural water supplies to securities regulation. Mayes, who's a Republican, told Arizona Public Radio's Daniel Kraker she'll continue the commission's emphasis on renewable energy.

Kris Mayes is speaking at today's Arizona Leadership Summit on Solar Energy.Click here for a link to a live webcast of the summit, including a forum moderated by NPR's Steve Inskeep.
