Arizona Regulators Recommend Rejecting Cut to APS’s Solar Rates

Arizona regulatory staff recommended rejecting a proposal to reduce the price the state’s largest utility must pay for solar power produced by its customers.

Arizona Corporation Commission staff said changes to Arizona Public Service’s solar policies that affect customers with rooftop solar plants should be considered in a formal rate case, according to a memo yesterday.

Arizona Public Service, a Phoenix-based unit of Pinnacle West Capital Corp., said the staff’s recommendations “are a starting point but don’t go far enough,” in a statement today.
