To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Arizona Public Records, I hereby request the following records:
I would like to receive the analysis/models/projections around the following claim regarding the $1,000 increase in cost claim by APS:
"Arizona Public Service analysts project the average household would see its monthly electricity bill double under this initiative. That works out to more than $1,000 in added cost for each Arizona family over the course of a year."
This text was taken from the following op-ed: https://www.azcentral.com/story/opinion/op-ed/2018/03/20/lower-utility-bills-say-no-renewable-energy-mandate/440398002/
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
The organization I work for, the Energy and Policy Institute (EPI), is a clearinghouse of information and can qualify as a representative of the news media. There are several examples of public record requests that have been provided to my organization and that were then published on our website to inform journalists publishing articles. Also, EPI has accounts with news outlets including Huffington Post and Republic Report.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I would request your response within ten (10) business days.
Nice to talk with you this morning. As discussed, the information you have requested below does not appear to be something the House of Representatives maintains. If there were projections or analysis regarding increased costs claimed by APS, as referenced in an op-ed, then they are most likely the source of that information. Please contact APS for further information.
If there are other public records that the House has generated related to this request or subject matter that you need, please let me know and we will find them and provide them to you.
With regard to your other six public records requests, you indicated that you will contact us next week with more specific information.
Thank you for taking the time to talk with me today. If our office can provide any further assistance or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
