About TEP's Proposal
Time is running out to speak out against TEP's attack on solar.
TEP wants to make solar on peoples’ homes and businesses much more costly by reducing the amount solar homeowners receive when they send (export) power to TEP, adding on new solar-specific monthly charges of at least $25/month, and increasing the customer and meter charges.
It’s a double whammy that will reduce access to solar for TEP customers.
Electric utilities have undertaken a coordinated attack on rooftop solar, which they see as a threat to their bottom line. A recent report found that these efforts are often rate based, forcing customers to foot the bill for lobbying against an innovative industry that has provided options to lower electricity bills.
