Tucson Electric Power Proposes New, Expanded Solar Energy Options for Customers in 2016

Tucson Electric Power is seeking to expand a popular new solar power program while providing another innovative solar choice for customers in 2016 as part of its plan to exceed Arizona's renewable energy goals. The renewable energy plan TEP filed last week with the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) includes a proposal to add up to 1,000 new participants in the TEP Residential Solar Program. The program, made available this year to approximately 500 homeowners, provides fixed-price electric service using solar arrays installed on customers homes. After budgeting $10 million for the program this year, TEP plans to invest another $15 million in the program in 2016. The program allows customers to go solar with no upfront installation or maintenance costs while receiving electric service at a flat monthly rate that remains fixed for up to 25 years.
