Information from APS news release

Arizona Public Service and a broad, diverse group of stakeholders reached agreement today on a far-reaching resolution of the company’s first rate review in five years. The agreement must now go before the Arizona Corporation Commission for review, a public hearing and a vote by Commissioners later this summer.
 
If approved, the agreement will pave the way for:

  • Investment in a smarter, cleaner energy infrastructure
  • More choice and control through new rate options for customers
  • Continued solar leadership for Arizona
“This agreement demonstrates what can be accomplished when people come together with a willingness to compromise and resolve complex policy issues. Consumer advocates, environmental advocates, business customers, solar industry representatives and more have agreed on a path for Arizona’s energy future. The winners are Arizona electricity customers,” said Don Brandt, APS Chairman, President and CEO. “What we have is a blueprint that will bring about more solar, a smarter energy infrastructure, a cleaner energy mix and more options for customers.” (more)
