On October 31, 2019, APS filed a Rate Application with the Arizona Corporation Commission (“Commission”). The evidentiary hearing for the Rate Application commences on January 14, 2021.
The Commission is not bound by the proposals made by APS, the Commission’s Utilities Division, or any Intervenors. The Commission will determine the appropriate relief to be granted in response to APS’s application based on the evidence presented in this matter. The final rates approved by the Commission may be higher, lower, or different than the rates proposed by APS or by other parties.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, access to APS and Commission offices may be restricted.

ADDITIONAL TELEPHONIC PUBLIC COMMENT MEETING
The Commission has scheduled the following additional telephonic public comment meeting to be held as follows:
Monday, February 1, 2021
6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m, or until the last caller is finished speaking, whichever comes first
To provide telephonic public comments, call 1-866-705-2554 and enter this code: 241497#
The Commission will impose a three-minute time limit per speaker, to maximize the number of callers who have an opportunity to speak. That time limit may be extended by the presiding Administrative Law Judge.
There may be a significant wait time to speak, and callers will be muted until it is their turn to speak. However, once placed into the proceeding, callers will be able to hear the comments of other callers through the phone line. Callers should turn off their computer audio during the public comment meeting, as the live stream on azcc.gov is delayed by 28 seconds and may cause feedback when it is the caller’s turn to speak.
The Commission encourages callers to use landline telephones for the telephonic public comment meetings, as mobile telephones do not consistently provide adequate audio quality to permit the verbatim transcription of telephonic speech. If a caller cannot be sufficiently understood to make an accurate transcription, the caller will be requested to file written comments in the docket.
Each telephonic public comment meeting will end when the last caller on the telephone line has had an opportunity to speak or at the designated end time, whichever occurs first.
Written public comments may be submitted by mailing a letter referencing Docket No. E-01345A-19-0236 to Arizona Corporation Commission, Consumer Services Section, 1200 West Washington Street, Phoenix, AZ 85007, or by submitting comments on the Commission’s website (www.azcc.gov) using “Cases and Open Meetings” and “Make a Public Comment in a Docket.” For assistance, you may contact the Consumer Services Section at 602-542-4251 or 1-800-222-7000.
