If you’re thinking about going solar in Arizona, time is of the essence!
APS currently has a rate increase submitted to the Arizona Corporate Commission. These changes will dramatically impact APS customers who do not have solar already. APS is seeking an 8% rate hike on residential customers, inducing mandatory demand charges, and significantly reducing the compensation given to solar customers.
Current solar customers receive a credit of $0.14 per kilowatt hour for providing electricity to the power grid. New solar customers would get just $0.03 per kilowatt hour, which is a 78% reduction, according to APS.
Here’s the good news!
APS will “Grandfather-in” all current solar homeowners and businesses AND all completed solar applications received by APS by July 1st, 2017. This means any household who decides to switch to solar before this date will be enrolled into the current plan, and will stay on that plan even after the rates change for the next 20 years!
