Project Description

RENEWABLE ENERGY

Mission

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.  

Objectives

  • 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.

Partners

  • City of Phoenix
  • Solar United Neighbors of Arizona
  • Maya’s Farm
  • Arizona State University
  • HDR
  • Amanda Frein, Solar Consultant at Our World Energy

Greenhouse Gardens

July 30th, 2017|

There are naysayers who lament, that too many regulations, and too much competition from mega-farms, make it impossible for the independent farmer to survive. A local couple, Jeannine and Cameron McChesney, are proving them wrong. Their success is made even more astounding, by the fact that their enterprise, Greenhouse Gardens, flourishes in an area that once was all desert.
