Arizona Sustainability Alliance approaches the Renewable Energy Priority in a hands-on manner. Instead of pure advocacy, we are applying sound research to the projects we focus on. Our objectives communicate our need to increase the use of renewable energy in Arizona in ways that make our organization stand out. In a state where a majority of energy is produced by non-renewable resources, it is our goal to demonstrate successful applications of renewable energy in the community.
Promote sustainable energy by strategically implementing renewable energy projects in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area.
Educate the public about renewable energy in creative, innovative, and interactive ways through projects that also incorporate community health and beautification.
Create regular community events aimed at demystifying renewable energy and promoting the overall growth of sustainable energy.

Current and Planned Projects
Renewable Energy Recreation Renewable Energy Recreation is a long-term program for AZSA. Projects will include educational recreation areas that are powered by renewable energy. The public will experience energy in a way they have never before. Our goal is for every person to leave a playground, such as Solar Swings, having gained knowledge on why it is beneficial to use renewable energy and excited to do so at home.
