Monthly bills for 1 million Arizona Public Service residential customers across the state would rise an average of nearly 8 percent – or about $11 -- under a plan by the utility to redesign its rate structure to recover the cost of modernizing its system, a company official said during a presentation in Sun City.
 
The system’s 200,000 commercial users would see an increase anywhere from 0.4 percent to 6.14 percent, depending on the size of the business, said Stefani Layton, APS’ director of revenue requirements during Monday's event at Sundial auditorium. The residential hike would average 7.96 percent.

State regulators are planning to vote on an increase in fees to Tucson Electric Power Co. customers that would allow the utility to collect $13.2 million for fixed costs it says it can’t recover through regular rates.

The change, which the Arizona Corporation Commission is slated to consider at an open meeting in Phoenix on Tuesday, would cost the typical TEP residential customer an additional 45 cents monthly starting July 1, the utility says.

The so-called “lost fixed cost recovery mechanism” is intended to reimburse TEP for estimated sales losses from energy-efficiency measures and customer-owned distributed generation like rooftop solar systems.

Battery Surge: The Technology is Here, but 'Demand Rates' Might be Key to Promoting Them
Battery Surge: The Technology is Here, but 'Demand Rates' Might be Key to Promoting Them

randazzo-ryan Ryan Randazzo, The Republic | azcentral.com 7:02 a.m. MST June 13, 2016

THERMWhile some rooftop-solar energy advocates have opposed "demand rates" from Arizona utilities, other companies see the rates as an opportunity to launch a new market for household-battery and solar systems that benefit customers and the power grid.

The demand charges, which base monthly rates on a customer's highest hour or half-hour of use, are luring companies that sell systems allowing solar customers to store excess power for their own use in batteries that are about the size of a rifle cabinet. Tabuchi Electric of Japan and JLM Energy of California say the technology can help users lower the demand rates, as well as reduce strain on the grid.

Salt River Project began billing solar customers through demand rates more than a year ago, and Arizona Public Service Co. has applied to regulators for approval to do the same for most residential customers.
