The Middle San Pedro River Valley is Arizona’s largest unfragmented ecosystem after the Grand Canyon National Park, and the most important bird migration corridor in the American Southwest. In November 2022 the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) approved the construction of the massive SunZia power transmission line through the heart of this integral watershed and wildlife corridor—when established routes already exist.
We do not need to make this irresponsible false choice between renewable energy development and protecting our last remaining major wildlife-supporting landscapes. For 14 years, everyday people have been fighting SunZia and working to protect the San Pedro River Valley. Peter Else has engaged the highly reputable Phoenix law firm Tully Bailey LLC to force the ACC to reconsider this ill founded decision. Here is what you need to know to help us achieve the correct decision.
