Environmental Protection: Giving Back to Our Communities

Arizona G&T Cooperatives strives to be good stewards of environmental protection in our operations and in our communities. A look at our structure explains why we maintain such a strong commitment to the environment. While most utilities are owned by outside investors, Arizona G&T Cooperatives is different. Consumers own our member cooperatives, and our member electric co-ops own and control us. Our employees also live in the communities that we serve. We agree that the environment needs to be protected, because we live here too.

We have spent millions of dollars to comply with federal and state environmental regulations, and we remain committed to balancing environmental stewardship with our mission to provide reliable, affordable electricity to our member/owners.
