Trico Electric Cooperative (TEC)

Trico Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Trico), headquartered in Marana, Arizona is a not-for-profit electric cooperative serving more than 45,000 customers in northwest Tucson, Marana, Corona de Tucson, Sahuarita, Green Valley, Three Points and Arivaca. Formed in 1945, Trico is a Touchstone Energy® Cooperative and is dedicated to accountability, innovation, integrity and commitment to the communities it serves.

Trico offers a variety of renewable energy programs that are designed to help our members take advantage of the renewable energy resources available in our state. Doing so will help decrease air pollution, reduce energy costs for participating members and help build a more sustainable future for all Arizonans.

To help members with the cost of adding renewable energy systems to their homes or businesses, Trico offers solar and renewable energy incentive programs under the name “SunWatts” which are designed to encourage Trico members to install a wide variety of renewable energy technologies such as photovoltaic systems, solar water heaters, as well as other technologies such as wind, solar daylighting, biogas/biomass, geothermal and solar space cooling.

Pursuant to Trico’s 2018 REST plan, incentives for solar water heating systems are still being offered

 

 

Solar Water Heaters (SWH)

Up to $0.40/kWh for first year kWh savings as measured over conventional water heating. Only systems certified by the Solar Ratings and Certification Corporation (“SRCC”) or the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (“IAPMO”) as being OG-300 are eligible for this rebate.

A list of OG-300 certified Solar Systems is available at SRCC’s website at www.solar-rating.org or at the IAPMO website at http://pld.iapmo.org. In addition, the customer contribution to the cost of the solar water heater project must be a minimum of 15% of the total project cost after accounting for and applying all federal and state incentives.

Rebates for solar water heaters will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and will be available until such time as the budget for the program is exhausted. At such time that the rebate budget is exhausted, customers will be placed on a rebate reservation waiting list.

Solar swimming pool heating systems are not eligible for the rebate.
