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.
