After more than two years and two court rulings, the Goldwater Institute's CityNorth case is now in the hands of the Arizona Supreme Court.
The Goldwater Institute's Nick Dranias appeared on KTVK Channel 3 to talk about how opening up the energy market to competition will drive costs down and help meet Arizona's growing energy needs by creating an incentive for innovative entrepreneurs.

Whenever I describe the Goldwater Institute's legal challenge to the Arizona Corporation Commission's renewable energy rules, a question often arises: why are you against renewable energy?

Indeed, we recently argued in favor of allowing firms to facilitate installation of commercial solar panels without the Commission's regulatory oversight.
