Arizona Public Service (APS)

APS currently has more than a gigawatt of solar, wind, biomass/biogas and geothermal generation installed – enough power to meet the energy needs of over 300,000 customers. This is the result of over 39,000 customer installations within the APS renewable energy program. APS residential and non-residential customers have more than 2,900 open applications, representing over 37 MW of additional generation that is currently under development. 

For additional information on APS’s renewable energy programs, visit aps.com/gosolar or call us at 602-328-1924 (Metro Phoenix) or 800-659-8148 (outside Metro Phoenix) or contact APS via email.

A solar water heating incentive program opened on March 17, 2014. The residential
up-front incentive for solar water heating systems is up to $0.30/first year kWh savings based on the OG-300 rating. Residential customers apply by logging into their aps.com account and selecting “my rebates and renewables.” See the application guide at aps.com/solarforms for program requirements. Non-residential customers may participate in this program as well. See below for more information. To apply, download the 2014 UFI Non-Residential SWH Application and CPA at aps.com/solarforms (under the resources section) and submit the completed documents as directed.

The APS Renewable Energy Program is also open to residential and non-residential customers installing a solar electric system. To apply for interconnection to our electric grid, visit aps.com/dg and select the appropriate “residential” or “non-residential” tab for a process overview, agreements, interconnection requirements, and application links.
 

Track participation in the 2014 incentive program as well as any legacy applications from 2013.

2014 Non-Residential Solar Incentive Program Information

APS has $100,000 in up-front incentives available to fund non-residential solar water heating projects on a first-come, first served basis through August 31, 2014.

Solar Water Heaters (SWH)

Solar water heaters are a cost-effective way to use solar power at your business's facilities. And, unlike other energy sources that may increase cost over time, the sun's energy is free and renewable. Solar water heating is a clean, cost-effective way to heat your facility’s water. Solar water heaters also use relatively little space.

Solar Water Heaters have a collector on the building’s roof, which catches sunlight and warms the water inside the system. The hot water is piped to a holding tank, ready for use. Water that is not used is circulated back through the system, keeping it hot. Your electricity back-up system will work at night or on dark, cloudy days.

Terms & Conditions:

The up-front incentive for Solar Water Heaters is up to $0.30/first year kWh savings based on the OG-100 rating for larger systems. Incentive may not exceed 40 percent of the total system cost.

Incentives are limited and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. The application and credit purchase agreement is available at aps.com/solarforms.

The customer contribution to the cost of the solar water heating system must be at least 15 percent of the project cost after all available Federal and State incentives have been applied.

 

APS Renewable Energy Rebates are subject to change and funding availability. Visit aps.com for information on available rebates and detailed terms and conditions.

Please Note:
  • Incentives identified under "Applied" status are estimates based on current levels of incentives at the time a customer submits their application and are subject to change at the time an application is reserved.
  • Residential Weekly Program Report

    APS incentive and funding levels are subject to change based on Arizona Corporation Commission Order.

    Prior to payment of residential renewable energy incentives, customers must submit a W-9 form to APS. APS does not require a W-9 if customers are leasing the system and will not own the system at the end of their lease; however the lessor will be required to submit a W-9. Additional information on submitting the W-9 will be provided when customers receive their reservation confirmation. W-9 forms are available online at the IRS website.
