Questions Raised About APS Move Into Rooftop Solar
WASHINGTON, DC -
In a move condemned by many solar companies in Arizona, the state's largest utility, APS, has announced that it will begin installing rooftop solar on customers' homes. After learning of the news, Ken Johnson, vice president of communications for the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), issued the following statement:
"After attacking rooftop solar companies in Arizona relentlessly for more than a year, this latest tactic by APS has a ‘Trojan Horse' smell to it. Our member companies welcome fair and equal competition, but this move would stack the deck in favor of a company which can rate base solar with a guaranteed rate of return. How is that fair? The Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) needs to think this through very carefully."
