Make your voice heard at the Arizona Corporation Commission now and on June 26th.
Time is running out to speak out against TEP's attack on solar.
About TEP's Proposal
TEP is proposing an additional $25 to $30 in monthly charges for new solar customers, in addition to a reduction in the export credit for solar energy.
This monthly charge would be based on the size of a customer’s solar system: $3.50 per kilowatt installed. The average customer has a 7 kilowatt system, or $24.50 a month, plus TEP has proposed doubling a meter fee, from $2.05 today to $4.32. This proposal is in addition to implementing a December 2016 decision by the Arizona Corporation Commission to eliminate net metering for solar customers, which alone will greatly impact solar customer savings and, ultimately, solar jobs.
If approved, TEP's solar penalty would:
Limit Arizonans' ability to choose solar energy.
Ignore the compromise set forth by the Arizona Corporation Commission in the Value of Solar decision last December.
Punish solar customers with high, unjustified charges.
Send a clear signal to the growing solar industry that Arizona is closed for business.
Reward TEP for attacking customer choice and competition.
