Avoid the AZ Solar Fee - Go Solar Now and Lock in your Savings!

Now's the Time to Go Solar! 

Recently, the Arizona Corporate Commission (ACC) voted to apply a small monthly solar surcharge for customers who install solar on their homes (click here to read more). Since this change does not take effect until January 1st, 2014, this means you can avoid the monthly surcharge altogether by going solar now.

Phoenix is the perfect location to get into solar, and now's the time. With the sun shining all year long, take advantage of the natural resources you have right at your fingertips -- or in this case, on your roof! The Phoenix area also has strong financial incentive, which makes solar panels even more affordable. 

How does the net metering reform affect APS customers?
·       If you currently have a solar system on your home, you will not be affected by these changes.
·       Customers who sign a solar contract by December 31, 2013 will also avoid the fee increase.
·       Customers who sign a solar contract after January 1, 2014, will be subject to the new monthly surcharge; this fee averages to be about $5 per month.

If you're thinking about installing a solar system on your home, you still have time to get a lower price locked in! Support your community by working with a locally owned and operated office. Start saving today by contacting your local Phoenix Solar Universe office at: 602-431-9626 or
