PAG supports sustainability efforts and the use of alternative energy. The following are examples of some of PAG's accomplishments in these areas.
PAG facilitated discussions by the Greater Tucson Strategic Energy Plan working group leading to a set of recommendations for alternative energy options. These recommendations were approved in November 2006 by PAG’s Regional Council.
One of the initial outcomes of these recommendations was PAG’s first Alternative Energy EXPO, held Sept.14 and Sept. 15, 2007, with over 4,000 people attending and 60 vendors showcasing their products and services at the Tucson Convention Center. An Alternative Energy Forum for community leaders was held on Sept. 14 in conjunction with the expo. A second Sustainability and Energy EXP09 was held March 6 and 7, 2009.
