The Remote Solar Electric Services program was created by Arizona Public Service (APS) in 1997. It is designed to provide solar power to off-grid residential customers (those located more than one-third mile from power lines). APS stand-alone systems are available for purchase and include photovoltaic (PV) panels, 120/240 VAC electronic power conditioning equipment, a battery bank that stores electricity for use at night, and a backup propane generator for extra power when needed. APS service and maintenance can be purchased for an additional annual fee. To date, approximately 35 PV units have been sold to customers.
