SEIA Statement on Settlement Reached in Arizona

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Following is a statement by Sean Gallagher, vice president of state affairs for the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), on the rate design settlement filed today with the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC):

"After weeks of discussion, we are pleased negotiations produced a settlement that all stakeholders, SEIA included, feel comfortable signing. The thorough process concluded outside of litigation, and we hope an era of collaboration will take hold in Arizona.
"While the solar industry didn't get everything it had hoped for out of the settlement, Arizona's current solar customers can rest assured they will be grandfathered into their existing rates, which was a priority for SEIA. Under the agreement, new solar customers will be able to sign up under initial rates that are as favorable as could be obtained under the Commission's December 2016 Value of Solar decision, which creates longer term uncertainties for Arizona customers."
