|Installation Requirements:||PV systems must be installed by a licensed contractor holding one or more of the following certifications with the Arizona Registrar of Contractors: C-11, K-11, L-11. |
SWH systems must be installed by a licensed contractor holding one or more of the following certifications with the Arizona Registrar of Contractors, C-37, C-37R, K-77, K-78, L-77, L-78.
|Ownership of Renewable Energy Credits:||APS|
|Funding Source:||RES Surchage|
Note: The Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) recently approved modifications to some elements of this program. Performance-based incentives, which had previously been available for larger renewable energy systems have been terminated. Only upfront incentives for smaller systems are now available.
Through the Renewable Incentive Program, Arizona Public Service (APS) offers customers who install various renewable energy systems the opportunity to sell the renewable energy credits (RECs) associated with the energy generated to APS. APS uses the RECs to demnstrate compliance with the state's Renewable Energy Standard (RES). The solar technologies eligible for a rebate include photovoltaic (PV), solar hot water, solar HVAC and solar daylighting systems. Up-front incentives for PV may be de-rated based on expected performance. All electricity-producing systems must be connected to the grid.
