SE Arizona Co-op Joins Movement to Cut Rooftop Solar Savings
SE Arizona Co-op Joins Movement to Cut Rooftop Solar Savings
By: Rachel Leingang  azcapitoltimes.com  April 24, 2015 , 7:05 am
 
Capitol Times
 
Another Arizona electric co-op is proposing to reduce savings rooftop solar customers enjoy by dropping the rate it pays users for excess power generated by solar panels, joining a handful of proposals from other utilities.
 
Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative, which has approximately 51,000 customers in southeastern Arizona, filed an application with the Arizona Corporation Commission to change net metering rules April 14.
 
Approximately 1,000 of Sulphur Springs customers have rooftop solar, or about 2 percent, said company spokesman Jack Blair.
 
A co-op member who has solar panels would be paid for excess power at the avoided cost rate of about 3.1 cents per kilowatt-hour, down from the retail rate of 12.6 cents solar users are paid now. Solar customers will continue to pay the retail rate when they purchase power from the co-op.
 
Current co-op members with solar leases will be grandfathered in to the new net metering scheme for up to 20 years.
 
The change is necessary, Sulphur Springs says in its filing, because the costs shifted from solar customers to non-solar are mounting. The co-op expects the cost shift to top $1.1 million this year, up from about $82,000 in 2010.

Solar Frm's home battery systems target SRP fees
Solar firm's home battery systems target SRP fees
Ryan Randazzo, The Republic | azcentral.com 6:11 p.m. MST April 22, 2015
 
A Scottsdale solar installation company is offering solar panels with batteries to help homeowners avoid the high "demand charge" Salt River Project recently approved for new solar customers.
 
The batteries will ensure customers don't set a high, momentary demand for power that will trigger steep fees from the utility.
 
SRP officials said the utility's new rate design will encourage customers to reduce their maximum demand on the utility grid. In the Phoenix area, the highest electricity use occurs in late summer afternoons, when air-conditioners crank up and, unfortunately, the sun is low in the sky and solar panels are not at their maximum output.

U.S. Enivornmental Protection Agency Recognizes APS With Presitigious Award For Ninth Consecutive Year

PHOENIX – For the ninth consecutive year, Arizona Public Service has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s prestigious ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award. Additionally, this year marks the sixth year in a row that the EPA has awarded APS with its highest honor – the ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence Award – for continued leadership in protecting the environment through energy efficiency.

The award recognizes several of the residential APS ENERGY STAR Programs and specifically highlights the APS Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program for promoting energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The ENERGY STAR awards are presented to a select group of organizations that exhibit outstanding leadership year after year. The 128 award winners for 2015 were selected from more than 16,000 organizations across the country that participate in the ENERGY STAR program.

“This recognition from the EPA reinforces the effort we are making to create a sustainable energy future for Arizona,” said Jim Wontor, APS Manager of Demand-Side Management Programs. “APS’s programs will help customers save more than 30 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity over the expected life of the energy efficiency measures installed, which equates to more than $2 billion in customer savings.”

APS Smart Meter Fees Rescinded
APS Smart-Meter Fees Rescinded
Ryan Randazzo, The Republic | azcentral.com 9:31 p.m. MST April 16, 2015.
 
smart meterOpponents of smart utility meters won a small victory this week when regulators reversed their December decision to allow Arizona Public Service Co. to charge its customers $50 when they don't want a wireless meter on their homes.
 
Smart meters use radio frequencies to transmit electricity usage to the utility for billing, and nearly all 1.1 million APS customers have them.
 
But some customers disapprove of their use, citing health, safety and privacy concerns. About 20,000 APS customers refused to change out their old meters, which require an APS employee to read them manually before billing the customer.
 
The Arizona Corporation Commission voted in December to allow APS to begin charging a $50 set-up fee for customers who want their smart meter replaced with a regular meter, plus $5 a month. They decided the 20,000 who never changed their meter didn't have to pay the set-up fee.
 
APS initially asked the commission to charge those who want regular meters $75 as a set-up fee plus $30 a month, later reduced to $21 a month. APS officials contend that is the fair price for the additional cost of serving customers with regular meters.
 
The regulators on Monday, after consulting with attorneys about formal complaints from two prominent smart-meter opponents, decided the company shouldn't be charging a fee at all until the matter is addressed in a full rate case, which APS expects to file next summer.
 
APS had not yet begun charging the fees approved by the commission before the decision was reversed.

TEP Discount Lighting Program Now Includes Light Emitting Diode (LED) Bulbs
TEP Discount Lighting Program Now Includes Light Emitting Diode (LED) Bulbs 
TEP BlastTUCSON, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tucson Electric Power (TEP) is expanding its successful Energy Star Lighting Program to make light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs available from local stores at discounts of up to 30 percent off regular retail prices. 
 
The Energy Star Lighting Program helps customers save energy and save money through the use of energy-efficient LED and compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. TEP pays manufacturers to provide discounts that are passed along by local retailers at the time of purchase. 
 
Discounted LEDs, currently available at local Home Depot and Costco stores, cost as little as about $6 each. Discounted CFL bulbs are widely available at costs as low as $2 for a four-pack; a list of participating retailers is available on tep.com. No coupons are necessary. 
 
LED bulbs use up to 90 percent less energy and last up to 25 times longer than regular incandescent bulbs. They also emit 90 percent less heat, so cooling a room lit with LEDs uses less energy. Over the course of its lifetime, an LED bulb will save an average of $80 in energy costs.
