The proposition according to Ballotpedia.com is this:

Arizona Proposition 127, the Renewable Energy Standards Initiative, was on the ballot in Arizona as an initiated constitutional amendment on November 6, 2018.[1] The measure was defeated.

A "yes" vote supported this constitutional amendment to require electric utilities in Arizona to acquire a certain percentage of electricity from renewable resources each year, with the percentage increasing annually from 12 percent in 2020 to 50 percent in 2030.
A "no" vote opposed this constitutional amendment to require electric utilities in Arizona to acquire a certain percentage of electricity from renewable resources, thereby leaving in place the state's existing renewable energy requirements of 15 percent by 2025.

THE MEASURE WAS DEFEATED

So who is this guy that put it on the ballot bankrolling it's cost and why would he be so interested?

He is a liberal from San Francisco, California.

If it is true that California would likely get discounted power from "clean" 100% fossil fuel dependent wind and solar powers from Arizona and this S. Power project, could that be why somehow? I don't know but I have to wonder would he benefit? Might he have investments in these companies? Maybe he owns this company that's behind it? Maybe he has shares in the companies that own S. Power? Might be worth examining.

If he would benefit then the claims he made against the Arizona power companies where he claims "corruption exists" should be examined. It's easy to point a finger at a utility and claim they are bad because they are raising rates, but it's much more complicated, there are so many other things involved in what causes rates to climb.

Oh my, he's the guy who spent millions on ads calling for Trump's impeachment. I never liked that guy one bit. Trump impeachment cries are such garbage as demands we go renewable 50% in a 10 cycles around the greatest source of nuclear radiation energy there is in the universe.

 Factcheck.org says he claimed he would spend $20 million on those ads and another $30 million on mobilizing kids. I don't know if he had any plans to buy homes for San Fancisco's booming homeless population and need for toilets in the streets but all that cash could have bought one home there for a homeless family. If we can save one family it's all worth it right? No actually it could have bought at least 100 homes in that "sanctuary city" or about 100,000 homes in Mexico or many other places in Central America and South America for the homeless. Remember money is energy.

It also says "NextGen Climate Action also has gotten increasingly involved in state elections. It spent nearly $1 million helping Democrat Ralph Northam win the Virginia gubernatorial race last year. It also reported having registered nearly 20,000 voters in the state before the Oct. 16 deadline."

Ballotpedia.com also state that it was NexGen Climate Action that financed it and the proposition would have required Arizona to generate 50% at minimum via "clean" energy that is 100% dependent on fossil fuels and draws energy from the grid. So what can we learn about NexGen Climate Action? Judging by the name it's yet another of the climate change schemes that want to suck your money in my humble opinion. In the 2016 general election they state the NexGen super PAC spent $90 million of which $89.5 million was contributed directly by Steyer. Wow. No wonder he looked and sounded so mad in those commercials.

And where does that money go? Various places to save the planet while maybe filling the bank accounts of those who like Al Gore use more energy than the majority of us who are pumping our money in their direction?
