We support the expansion of renewable energy use in Arizona and we understand you want practical ways to produce a portion of your electricity. That’s why we offer riders that work in combination with your plan.
 
​Selecting the best plan rider can help maximize the benefits of your renewable energy system. Find the one that's right for you.
 
rcp export rider for new on-site solar
With our export rate plan, we'll measure the power you export to the APS grid and give you a monthly bill credit based on the current RCP purchase rate. Any bill credit in excess of your otherwise applicable monthly bill will be credited on the next monthly bill, or subsequent bills if necessary.
 
eligibility
  • electricity must be generated using solar photovoltaic panels
  • generator must be interconnected to APS's distribution grid
  • generator must be on-site, installed behind the billing meter, and must serve the customer's load
  • facility's nameplate capacity cannot be larger than the following electrical service limits:
    • 200 Amp service, a maximum of 15 kW-dc
    • 400 Amp service, a maximum of 30 kW-dc
    • 600 Amp service, a maximum of 45 kW-dc
    • 800 Amp service and above, a maximum of 60 kW-dc
    • For systems over 10 kW-dc, the facility's nameplate capacity cannot be larger than 150% of the customer's maximum one-hour peak demand measured in AC over the prior twelve (12) months. (For example, if the customer’s peak is 8kW-ac, the maximum system size that could be installed would be 12kW-dc).
legacy epr-6 net metering
​(frozen 8/31/2017)
Our Legacy EPR-6 net-metering rider uses bi-directional meters, which record the energy that is delivered to your home as well as the energy that is sent from your system to APS.
 
  • Under this rider, export energy (kWh) will be netted against kWh supplied by APS during the billing month, or banked and netted on subsequent bills if necessary.
eligibility
  • must qualify for the residential solar grandfathering program
  • may only be used in conjunction with the residential Legacy plans
  • a residential Customer may remain on this rate rider for up to 20 years from the date their solar generator was interconnected to the APS distribution grid
  • generating unit must be no more than 125% of your total connected load
  • may not be combined with the Budget Billing program, Green Choice plans or and summary billing

eligibility
  • export energy (kWh) will be netted against kWh supplied by the APS during the billing month, or banked and netted on a subsequent bill if necessary
  • if you have a time-of-use rate, the export energy will be netted according to when it was earned – either under your on-peak or off-peak periods

  • must be interconnected to APS’s distribution grid
  • must be on-site, installed behind the billing meter, and must serve the Customer’s load
  • nameplate rating capacity cannot be larger than the following electrical service limits:
    • 200 Amp service, a maximum of 15 kW-dc

    • 600 Amp service, a maximum of 45 kW-dc
    • 800 Amp service and above, a maximum of 60 kW-dc
    • For all qualifying residential and non-residential facilities over 10 kW-dc, the facility's nameplate capacity cannot be larger than 150% of the customer's maximum one-hour peak demand measured in AC over the prior twelve (12) months. (For example, if the customer’s peak is 8kW-ac, the maximum system size that could be installed would be 12kW-dc).
epr-2 net billing
With our net billing rider, we’ll give you a per kilowatt hour (kWh) credit on your bill for any excess kWh your system produces. The export energy will be acquired by APS in exchange for a credit on your monthly bill.
