I-11 Corridor Initiative
In a recent PBS piece, our Sun Corridor Program Director talks about Sonoran's involvement in the project's development. He goes on to discuss the Environmental Impact Statement process and the critical concept of integrated infrastructure. As always, it is vitally important that stakeholders work together from start to finish.
EPA Clean Power Plan
The Sonoran Institute prepares a statement on today's release of the U.S. EPA's Clean Power Rules in order to discuss the platform for our study to be released next month. We will reveal how large-scale solar can do far more in meeting the EPA's emissions targets than originally envisioned in the rule.
The Sonoran Institute traces its roots to the Southwest’s arid lands and fragile Sonoran Desert where it began working more than 15 years ago to bring about lasting conservation and prosperity to local communities. The Institute’s multi-faceted, long-term efforts in this area – dominated today by Arizona’s burgeoning Sun Corridor – seek to promote regional solutions to balancing rapid growth with the need for open space and creating sustainable water and energy sources for future generations.
