The Solar Energy Industries Association says customers of Arizona Public Service Co. customers will get a $34 million annual benefit from the rooftop systems over the life of those systems.

SEIA, the national solar group, is weighing in on a dispute between the solar industry and APS about what is the true cost of rooftop solar systems to APS and ratepayers, particularly those that don’t have solar.

“This study clearly shows that solar offers concrete net benefits to all APS ratepayers, regardless of whether or not they have installed solar,” said Carrie Cullen Hitt, senior vice president of state affairs at SEIA. “It’s essential that we keep smart policies like net metering in place so that Arizona can continue to benefit from its abundant solar resources.”
