Arizona Net Metering

Of the 32 electricity suppliers in Arizona, 18 of them report that they offer net metering. At the state level, Arizona is known for heavily restricted net metering and feed in tariff regulations.

Energy Loss

There are 14 electricity companies in Arizona that reported energy loss, including Arizona Public Service, Salt River Project, and Tucson Electric Power. Combined, these 14 companies average an annual energy loss of 4.05% of electricity generated. The countrywide average for energy loss is 2.87%, which earns a rank of 37th best in the country for Arizona in this category.

Solar Taxes And Rebates

In order to foster personal solar, all a state needs to do is enact rebates for solar panel purchases and tax breaks. Arizona offers a credit that is $1000 or less or there is no state tax. While there are no statewide rebates there are local rebates available to many customers who wish to install private solar panels at their place of residence. Arizona citizens have the ability to apply a 100% property tax exemption for the purchase of private solar panels, which is great news for the consumer and solar efforts. The state offers a 100% sales tax exemption to citizens who install private solar. This is great news for everyone in the state.

State Level Initiatives

Customers who are searching for electricity options that use renewable fuel types will have better luck if there are statewide initiatives that encourage green energy usage. Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) encourage or require electric companies to produce a percentage of their electricity using green fuel types. The state of Arizona requires electricity companies to generate between 1-15% of their output from renewable fuel types. Furthermore, there are currently no low income solar programs to help low income families to install solar panels.
