Chair, Tucson Pima Metropolitan Commission

Tucson Pima Metropolitan Energy Commission

September 2010Present (4 years 1 month) Tucson, AZ

The Tucson-Pima Metropolitan Energy Commission (“MEC”) was established in 1980 by resolution of City of Tucson Mayor & Council and Pima County Board of Supervisors. The goal of MEC is to serve "…as a catalyst for the City of Tucson and Pima County to build a more sustainable energy future in the region."

MEC is an appointed, all-volunteer civic commission. During the past twenty-three years, the Commission has actively educated the public on a variety of energy subjects, analyzed technical issues, commented on energy legislation, developed strategic plans, issued recommendations to the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, developed community support, and sponsored many energy-related community activities and projects.

Pima County and the City of Tucson have become national leaders in adopting energy-efficient building codes and permitting the use of sustainable natural building materials including, adobe, rammed earth, and strawbale construction. The Livable Tucson Forums, public meetings held throughout Tucson and completed in 1997, have led to the creation of the City of Tucson Sustainable Communities Program. Sustainability goals now form the framework for City policies and budget planning. The Affordable Strawbale Housing project won several national recognition awards. The main project currently undertaken by MEC is the creation and implementation of the Greater Tucson Strategic Energy Plan in coordination with the Pima Association of Governments.
