Solar Energy Initiative May Face Two Competing Measures
Solar Energy Initiative May Face Two Competing Measures

rooftop-solar-620

Two ballot referrals would regulate solar companies as public service corporations and require the Arizona Corporation Commission to change rates and rules for solar.

Strike-everything amendments to HCR 2041 and HCR 2039 would compete with an initiative backed by solar companies that would preserve the status quo for solar energy in the state.

The Arizona Solar Energy Freedom Act, supported with a $3 million initial influx from SolarCity, would preserve net metering at the retail rate, prohibit demand charges on solar customers and prohibit increases in solar fees. It would also require utilities to interconnect solar systems within 45 days. Most of the act’s provisions would expire in 2023.

Solar Net Metering Supporters Rally at Capitol
Solar Net Metering Supporters Rally at Capitol

randazzo-ryan Ryan Randazzo, The Republic | azcentral.com 2:37 p.m. MST April 26, 2016

krisAbout 200 rooftop solar industry workers and their advocates rallied at the state Capitol on Tuesday, urging lawmakers to protect net metering, a system where utilities give retail credit to customers who send excess solar power to the grid.

Rooftop solar leasing company SolarCity Corp. is donating to the effort to pay signature gatherers to put an initiative on the November ballot that would prevent utilities from changing the net metering system or otherwise altering rates for solar customers.

Sen. Debbie Lesko, a Peoria Republican, is working to introduce a referendum at the Legislature that would compete with the net metering ballot initiative, and the protesters wanted to tell her to back off.

"We are here to say no way, no how to the Legislature," said former Arizona utility regulator Kris Mayes, who is leading the effort to pass the Arizona Solar Energy Freedom Act.

Utility Drops Bid to Have all Residential Customers Pay Demand Charge
Utility Drops Bid to Have all Residential Customers Pay Demand Charge

Energy620

A small utility that serves parts of rural Arizona is dropping its bid for new controversial rates for all residential customers, but keeping its plan to move solar customers onto those rates.

UniSource Electric Services, which serves about 90,000 customers in Mohave and Santa Cruz counties, wanted all residential customers to be on a three-part rate instead of today’s standard two-part rate. The three-part rate would add a demand charge to the existing fixed charge and volumetric charge.

Under a demand charge, customers pay for power based on the peak amount of energy they use throughout the month.

UniSource spokesman Joe Barrios told the Arizona Capitol Times today that the company decided to pursue demand charges for solar customers and changes to net metering, but won’t ask the Arizona Corporation Commission to institute demand charges en masse.

UniSource and Tucson Electric Power are both owned by Fortis, a Canadian utility holding company.

Sierra Club Files EPA Appeal Over Tempe Power Plant
Sierra Club Files EPA Appeal Over Tempe Power Plant

powerplantThe Sierra Club filed an appeal to the air-quality permit for the natural-gas plant overhaul in Tempe that Arizona Public Service Co. is undertaking.

The utility wants to close part of the Ocotillo Power Plant near Tempe Marketplace and replace it with more powerful and efficient generators.

But the Sierra Club is opposed to how APS would operate the new generators at the plant, which could result in carbon-dioxide emissions akin to a coal-fired power plant, the group said. Usually, a natural-gas burning power plant would emit about half the carbon emissions of coal.

Major Battle Likely to Heat Up Over Solar Energy Iniative
Major Battle Likely to Heat Up Over Solar Energy Initiative

A constitutional ballot initiative that would preserve the status quo for solar energy for the next six years already has major funding. But utilities and some public officials are lining up against it, setting up a big election battle.

The Arizona Solar Energy Freedom Act, filed last week by former Arizona Corporation Commissioner Kris Mayes, takes aim at several tactics used by utilities related to solar energy.

Many of the initiative’s provisions would expire in 2023.

SolarCity, a major solar company based in California, gave $3 million to Energy Choice for America, a committee headed by Mayes to support the ballot initiative. The money could also be used to support pro-solar candidates and elected officials, the group said.

But the state’s largest utility, Arizona Public Service, called the ballot initiative “ridiculous.”

My Turn: In Defense of Utilities' Demand Charge
My Turn: In defense of utilities' demand charge

Mark Schiavoni, AZ I See It azcentral.com 4:35 p.m. MST April 20, 2016

APS official: A Tucson utility is proposing higher charges for those who use power during peak times. We've had them for years - and they work.

schivSummer is coming and with it a surge in residential electricity use — but that doesn’t have to mean high electricity bills. For Arizona residents, the good news is we can keep our homes and businesses comfortable and our electricity bills manageable.

Customers have a number of programs and rate plans available from APS,  including award-winning energy-efficiency programs and time-of-use rates. Another option is the Combined Advantage Rate, which uses a time-tested option called a “demand rate.”

Demand rates have been used successfully for years by Arizona businesses. They are easy to adopt for customers who want to save money by reducing electricity usage during on-peak periods, generally weekdays in the afternoon and early evening.

Solar Ballot Initiative Could See Competing Referendum

solarsideLess than a week after a pro-solar group announced a ballot drive, lawmakers are working with utilities to put a counter measure before voters in November.

No language for the ballot referendum is yet available, but state Sen. Debbie Lesko said she is working on a measure that would send it to the ballot.  She opposes the Arizona Solar Energy Freedom Act, which would force utilities to purchase most of the excess power from rooftop solar at retail prices and would prevent utilities from raising fees on solar customers.

In a system called net metering, utilities give customers full retail credits for their excess electricity. Utilities contend that they can purchase power on the open market, even from renewable sources, for less than the retail price paid to people with solar panels. Net metering helps customers lower their utility bills because the credits they get for excess power accumulate and offset power they draw from their utility.

APS Solar Program Celebrates Five Years of Sunshine
APS Solar Program Celebrates Five Years of Sunshine
Nine AZ Sun Solar Power Plants producing 170 megawatts for Arizona

Phoenix 4/19/16 aps.com – More than one million solar panels are hard at work in the Arizona desert producing clean power for APS customers. These photovoltaic panels are part of the APS AZ Sun Program, which celebrates its fifth anniversary this year.

The program has experienced many successes along the way, further positioning Arizona as a solar leader and bringing APS customers exactly what they want – more energy produced from the sun. The one million panels – most of which maximize the sun’s energy by following it across the sky – have produced more than one billion kilowatt hours since the first APS plant came on line in 2011.
