"Under the proposal, consumers would save money by receiving monthly credits, and Arizona Public Service would pay for installation and maintenance. The customers would get a $30 credit each month for the 20 years, or $7,200 over the course of the 20-year program."
So, APS "rents" roof space for $30 a month and still owns the system. During the ACC hearings APS said they needed $50 to $100 dollars a month from private solar PV owners or they would have to raise rates.
"The proposal would cost Arizona Public Service between $57 million and $70 million."
Yeah, you mean APS will ask the ACC for a rate increase to pay for their 70 million dollar project. You're better off installing your own system and step away from future rate increases all together. Basically your going to pay more for electricity whether a homeowner or business owner installs their own system or APS installs the system. If you buy your own system, you pay it forward and insulate yourself from future rate increases.
