Solar power in Surprise, Arizona

APS offers its customers an excellent net metering program on top of already great solar incentives. Net metering gives the customer one for one credit for power exported to the grid so the customer is only ever billed for the amount of power drawn from the grid minus what was exported to the grid. Usually and almost certainly on a standard size system in Arizona more power will be exported than received from the grid, your utility will credit you at their retail rate for this excess. Arizona also offers a $1,000 tax credit or 25% of the system cost alongside the federal level tax credit of 30%. With plenty of sunshine, net metering and excellent tax credits solar is a no brainer home investment.
