aps pilot program offers funding for schools

The future of our state lies in the hands of our students. To help schools in Arizona, we recently launched a pilot program that funds 100 percent of energy efficiency projects. This allows schools to reduce energy costs and keep money in the classroom.


Our APS Schools Pilot Program provides $2 million in funding through 2017 for energy-saving projects at K-12 schools in our service territory. It is designed to assist public and charter schools that haven’t been able to take advantage of our Solutions for Business energy efficiency programs due to funding restraints. This will help these schools save money on their energy bills, improve comfort and protect the environment by increasing efficiency and reducing energy consumption.


Typical upgrades include:

• Energy efficient lighting and sensors
• Heating and air conditioning upgrades
• Energy management systems, 
  programmable/smart thermostats

We have been helping schools save energy and money for the last 10 years through our APS Solutions for Business Program and are committed to continuing our long-standing tradition of giving back to our communities with this pilot program. To learn more, please visit
