APS Statement on Recommended Opinion and Order for Rate Review

July 26, 2017

APS released this statement following filing of the recommended opinion and order in its rate review proceeding before the Arizona Corporation Commission:

“Twenty-nine formal stakeholders, representing consumer advocates, environmental groups, business customers, industry groups, national and local private rooftop solar organizations, seniors, school officials and limited-income advocates, reached a groundbreaking agreement on our rate review. If approved, it will bring about more solar, a smarter energy infrastructure, a cleaner energy mix and more options for customers. The hearing officer’s recommended order continues to move Arizona in that direction.”

The recommended opinion and order is a procedural step in the rate review process. Commissioners will consider the recommended order in an upcoming open meeting. They may vote to approve, reject or amend the order and issue a decision.
