Solar power in Phoenix, Arizona

APS provide net metering by tracking how much power you consume from the grid and how much excess solar is sent to the grid, the excess is credited at 1 for 1 with APS' retail power price. Solar produces far more in Arizona than other states this means net metering is far more profitable! Arizona also offers a $1,000 state tax credit, when coupled with the federal ITC this means about 35% of costs are already covered and with net metering the system pays for itself very quickly.
