APS Rate Hikes and the New Hidden Solar Incentive

Protect Yourself from Rising APS Rate Hikes with this Hidden Solar Incentive

While temperatures have cooled down, utility bills are still rising thanks to a APS rate increase that went into effect in August.

APS Customers Shocked by Increasing Utility Bills

Many customers are frustrated after seeing an increase of 10% – 15% on their monthly bills.

Today, the Republic reported on these increases after hearing from APS customers who are getting their bills following the rate changes: “This is literally taking food directly out of my mouth,” Phoenix customer Ron Geddling wrote to the regulators after getting his first new bill. “This is absolutely the worst robbery of my money I have ever seen … I will now be going hungry in order to make APS a little richer.”

Hidden APS Solar Incentive

But not all APS customers are seeing increasing electric bills, in fact some have taken advantage of an APS incentive that has helped them drive down their electric bill to nearly zero.

Most people don’t know that APS also added a fantastic new incentive for new solar customers. Called the export rate, it allows new solar owners to sell energy from their solar system at a rate that is often higher than what they would pay APS. And APS will guarantee that this rate will not change for at least ten years.

“Many homeowners in Arizona installed solar this summer in advance of the APS rate hikes. They are enjoying the savings today but it isn’t too late to protect yourself and your family from these risings costs,” said Joe Cunningham, Director of Operations at Sunny Energy. “We’re helping homeowners take advantage of the APS incentives and build a solar home system that helps them lock in savings today and not be at the mercy of rising rate hikes.”

The Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors list includes Tempe-based solar firm

TEMPE, ARIZONA—Coming off the biggest year ever for U.S. solar installations, local installer Sunny Energy is proud to be named one of the top solar contractors in the United States by Solar Power World magazine. Sunny Energy achieved a rank of 188 out of 500 solar companies.

The Top Solar Contractors list is developed by Solar Power World to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the United States. Produced annually, the Top Solar Contractors list celebrates the achievements of U.S. solar developers, subcontractors and installers within the utility, commercial and residential markets. The list was released on July 25.

“The 2017 Top Solar Contractors list features 500 of the best solar contractors in the United States,” said Kelly Pickerel, managing editor of Solar Power World. “From solar hotbeds on the coasts to the up-and-coming Midwest solar market, every installer adding even the smallest solar array to the grid is making a positive impact on our communities. We’re proud to recognize these companies and their efforts to bring solar power to U.S. homes and businesses.”

The U.S. solar market installed more than 14,700 MW of solar in 2016, nearly doubling the capacity installed in 2015. For the first time ever, solar was ranked as the No. 1 source of new electric generating capacity additions brought online throughout the year. GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) predict the cumulative U.S. solar market to nearly triple in size over the next five years. By 2022, more than 18 GW of solar photovoltaic capacity will be installed annually, and Sunny Energy will continue to be a major player in adding solar to the grid.
