Solar power in Buckeye, Arizona

Buckeye residents being served by APS are eligible for their net metering program besides several tax credits. APS under their net metering policy will provide 1 for 1 credit for each kWh of energy exported to their grid and use that to offset your bill. If you export more energy than drawn from the grid which is usually the case especially in sunny Arizona APS will pay you at their retail power rate for each kWh. Buckeye solar customers are also eligible for the 30% federal solar tax credit, this can be spread over many years and has no system size limits to be eligible. Arizona also offers a 25% up to $1,000 tax credit that is subtracted from your total costs before the 30% federal level tax credit. Although small it is still excellent since most states don't even offer any tax credits. With incentives being so generous in Buckeye many utilities and lawmakers are trying hard to put an end to them so don't wait any longer!
