The Arizona Corporation Commission requires electric utilities to conduct a cost/benefit analysis to compare the cost of line extension with the cost of installing of a stand-alone photovoltaic (PV) system for remote locations with electricity needs. This ruling applies to Arizona Public Service (APS),* Tucson Electric Power (TEP), Arizona Electric Power Cooperative and Navopache Electric Cooperative.

* APS, the state's largest electric utility, offers a rebate for the installation of PV systems for remote customers not connected to APS's grid, but located within their service territory. For more information about APS options for remote customers, click here.
