Many influential voices have agreed that net metering leads to an unfair cost-shift that needs to be resolved for customers.
Solana, a new solar plant that can produce clean solar energy for APS customers after the sun sets, has generated a lot of attention. Here are some recent articles about this “game-changer” for solar power in Arizona:
The Solana Generating Station has successfully passed final production tests and entered commercial operation on Monday.
In a column on net metering in today’s Arizona Republic, Robert Robb called the current net metering policy unfair and said if the Arizona Corporation Commission waited to fix it until the next rate case, it “would be a mistake and a disservice.”
The Arizona Investment Council calls the Arizona Corporation Commission’s Staff report on net metering a “starting point for further discussion” but emphasizes that the issue needs to be addressed sooner rather than later.
Unlike other solar-powered electrical plants, the new Solana Generating Station keeps the sun's energy working after dark to produce electricity for APS customers across Arizona.

The APS plant that gave birth to commercial solar power in Arizona quietly comes of age this month in Flagstaff. Instead of celebrating with a glamorous “Sunny Sweet 16” party, this teenager will simply keep turning sunlight into clean, renewable energy for APS customers.
An article in today’s San Jose Mercury News details a recent report that estimates California’s net metering policy could cost the state’s non-solar customers $1.1 billion a year by 2020. APS has been actively advocating for changes to Arizona’s net metering policy based on similar issues.
Did you know that APS is spending nearly $1 billion on solar projects throughout Arizona?
