Let the People Decide Who Regulates Their Utility Bills
Let the People Decide Who Regulates Their Utility Bills
Susan Bitter Smith, AZ I See It azcentral.com 3:37 p.m. MST May 21, 2015
Bitter Smith imgMy Turn: Corporation Commissioners are far more likely to listen to those who elected — not appointed — them.
Historically, The Arizona Republic has vigorously, and in my opinion, appropriately advocated for transparency and accountability from Arizona's policy makers.With that in mind, I was surprised to see the Republic suggest that such transparency and accountability be eliminated and that the public election of the Arizona Corporation Commission be expunged and replaced by political appointment.
 
The Corporation Commission, a separate state constitutional body, oversees the state's investor-owned utilities, private water companies, corporate entity registration, securities licenses, railroad crossings, and pipeline safety.
 
There is no question that the commission's day-to-day activities are not the stuff that grabs top-of-the-fold headlines on a daily basis. However, when there is an issue that has emotionally charged diverging points of view, impacted citizens have not been shy to communicate and engage with elected commissioners. Just look at any water rate case that the commission has reviewed.
 
Such communication is vital to insuring that the commission makes sure consumer interests are protected.
 
Recently, the level of communication to the commission has been expanded by professional campaigns on highly charged issues such as solar energy net metering. The number of citizens communicating to the commission has certainly grown, but the passion of their opinions is not new.

New TEP Transmission Line Will Strengthen Service, Help Meet Future Demand

New TEP Transmission Line Will Strengthen Service, Help Meet Future Demand 
TUCSON, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tucson Electric Power (TEP) is building a new 500-kilovolt (kV) transmission line in Pinal County to ensure continued service reliability for customers in southern Arizona. 
 
The line will extend approximately 41 miles from the Pinal Central Substation east of Casa Grande to TEP’s Tortolita Substation, located southeast of the Red Rock area. Field crews are installing high-capacity wires, new metal poles and additional substation equipment for the new line, which will expand access to renewable energy projects and help meet future energy demands in the Tucson metropolitan area and surrounding region. 
 
The line’s route, most of which passes though state-owned land, was identified after TEP conducted community meetings and studied its potential impact on natural, cultural and visual resources in a public process that began in 2008. TEP designed the project to minimize disturbance of native vegetation, wildlife and cultural resources. The Arizona Corporation Commission approved the route in 2012. 
 
More than half of the line’s approximately 180 steel poles – each 150 to 190 feet tall – have been installed, and construction crews will begin stringing wires next month. Work on the project is being performed by TEP with assistance from Atkinson Construction. The $76 million project is expected to be completed in December.

CenturyLink Expands Fiber Network in South Phoenix
centuryCenturyLink Expands Fiber Network in South Phoenix

randazzo-ryanRyan Randazzo, The Republic | azcentral.com 10:59 a.m. MST May 18, 2015

About 1,200 businesses in south Phoenix have access to fiber broadband service from CenturyLink Inc. as part of an expansion being announced today.

CenturyLink already offers fiber broadband with 1 gigabit per second speeds to businesses across the metro area, but the new expansion will have the network in place, eliminating the usual fees to install such connections, officials said.

CenturyLink also has gigabit fiber service in Sun City, Surprise and northwest Phoenix.

This fiber technology makes it easier for businesses to work in the cloud, upload and download large multimedia files, stream video content and back up data.

The approximate location of the fiber expansion in the South Phoenix area is south of the airport to south of Baseline Road and from 38th Street to west of Priest Road.

"You can expect CenturyLink to continue to deploy fiber further into our network and closer to our customers," said Ken McMahon, vice president of enterprise and sales for the region.

SRP Sells Bonds to Pay Debt
SRP Sells Bonds to Pay Debt

randazzo-ryanRyan Randazzo, The Republic | azcentral.com 2:21 p.m. MST May 18, 2015

Salt River Project is selling $924 million of public power revenue bonds, which will be used to pay off debt and lower the cost of borrowing money for the public utility.

SRP elected officials approved the sale last week. Most of the money raised will be used to pay off outstanding debt, saving SRP about $130 million, officials said.

The sale also will produce more than $300 million in cash for SRP to use for construction projects, according to SRP.

The sale was the biggest in the bond market for the week, and one of the largest ever for the public water and power utility.

EPA Emissions Regulations Coming Down to Cost
EPA Emissions Regulations Coming Down to Cost
DougDoug MacEachern, columnist | azcentral.com 11:41 a.m. MST May 18, 2015 --  The Environmental Protection Agency is getting closer to issuing its new regulations governing greenhouse-gas emissions from power plants, and, inexorably, the question about what all this will cost is getting more attention.

As it must. Until now, the numbers regarding the economics of what the EPA is proposing have been pretty squishy. And virtually all of the estimates have been coming from the EPA, which isn't exactly a neutral party. The EPA contends that as a result of its new regs, costs will increase $79 to $146 per year, per household. Considering that the EPA wants Arizona to reduce its carbon output by 52 percent within the next 15 years, that seems just a wee bit optimistic.

Republicans in the Senate already are expressing some doubt about it. So are rural Arizonans.
