SRP Board OKs $40 Million Price Decrease
SRP Board OKs $40 Million Price Decrease


Temporary Measure will Reduce Prices by an Average 1.6 % for next 10 Months

December 5, 2016 - For the second time in less than a year, SRP’s Board of Directors has approved a decrease in electricity prices for its more than 1 million customers. The 10–month temporary decrease, effective with the January 2017 billing cycle, averages an overall 1.6 percent.

The decrease will save the typical residential customer just under a dollar per month during the winter billing months and around $2.50 to $3.50 per month when the summer billing season begins in May. Prices will return to original winter season prices approved in 2015 with the November 2017 billing cycle.

Phone Company on the Hook for only $586.40, State Supreme Court Rules

By: Howard Fischer, Capitol Media Services November 28, 2016 , 2:55 pm


The state’s high court won’t force the phone company to pay for $2 million in losses suffered by U.S. Airways because of a mistake that shut down the airlines reservations systems and affected 1,360 flights nationwide.

In a brief order Wednesday, the Supreme Court upheld the findings of the state Court of Appeals that the only thing Qwest Communications — now Century Link — owes to the airline is the cost of services it did not get. And that, the court concluded, is just $586.40.

My Turn: Why APS Can't Keep Subsidizing Solar
My Turn: Why APS Can't Keep Subsidizing Solar

APS official: Solar power is important for Arizona. But we can't continue to shift solar costs onto non-solar customers.

aps solarAs the first person to hold the title of Renewable Energy Manager for Arizona Public Service, I can attest to how far APS and Arizona have come in advancing solar energy over the past decade.   

In 2005, Arizona was in the process of re-examining its renewable portfolio standard and looking hard at how to make more progress on solar energy. APS was providing a small amount of solar energy to our customers and had just a handful of rooftop solar customers.

In 2006, the Arizona Corporation Commission passed a Renewable Energy Standard that set a target of 15 percent renewables by 2025 and required 30 percent of the total be derived from distributed generation. In 2008, the ACC adopted a new set of rules implementing a net metering program.
