Not a Goodbye: A Note from Lucy Mason
It is with both sadness and excitement I share the news with you that I’m stepping away from my Executive Director position with AriSEIA. It has been such an honor leading the organization during such a critical time for the advancement of solar and renewable energy technologies in Arizona, and I couldn’t be prouder of the work we’ve accomplished. I’m very excited about what lies ahead though, and will continue to consult with AriSEIA to keep this ball rolling forward in a meaningful way. I am ready for my next chapter, as well as working with many of you in the future, and look forward to seeing you soon!

Senators launch bipartisan initiative on long term solutions to expiring energy tax credits
