Summary
On October 31, 2019, APS filed a Rate Application with the Arizona Corporation Commission (“Commission”). An evidentiary hearing for the Rate Application is currently scheduled to commence 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.

How You Can View or Obtain a Copy of the Application
Copies of the application are available from APS by visiting www.pinnaclewest.com/ratecase; at the Commission’s Docket Control Center at 1200 West Washington Street, Phoenix, Arizona, and the Commission’s office at 400 West Congress Street, Suite 218, Tucson, Arizona, during regular business hours; and on the Commission’s website (www.azcc.gov) using the e-Docket function. During the COVID-19 pandemic, access to APS and Commission offices may be restricted.

All documents filed in this docket are available online (usually within 24 hours after docketing) at the Commission’s website (www.azcc.gov) using the e-Docket function and Docket No. E-01345A-19-0236.

ADDITIONAL TELEPHONIC PUBLIC COMMENT MEETINGS
The Commission has scheduled the following additional telephonic public comment meetings:


Monday, December 14, 2020 
10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m, or until the last caller is finished speaking, whichever comes first 


Monday, January 11, 2021
6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., or until the last caller is finished speaking, whichever comes first


Thursday, January 14, 2021 
10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m, or until the last caller is on the line by 12:30 p.m. has finished speaking, whichever comes last 


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.

ADA/Equal Access Information
The Commission does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission to its public meetings. Persons with a disability may request a reasonable accommodation, as well as request this document in an alternative format, by contacting the ADA Coordinator, Carolyn Buck, E-mail CDBuck@azcc.gov, voice phone number 602-542-3931. Requests should be made as early as possible, and at least 48 hours before the proceeding, to allow time to arrange the accommodation.
