SRP Updates: New rate plans, battery incentive, and solar installer program changes
- SRP’s four new approved rate plans went into effect on May 1. If SRP customers are on an old rate plan, they can switch to one of the new plans, which include non-demand package options.
- The utility’s new battery incentive also went into effect on May 1, which doubles the incentive to $300 per KWH, with a $3,600 cap. There are currently 3,789 battery incentive applications still available until the incentive caps out. Note that qualifying battery technology must contain lithium-based batteries. The utility company is also offering a $50 rebate to customers who buy electric vehicles.
- Additionally, SRP will be rolling out big changes to their preferred solar installer program in July of this year. SRP is working with AriSEIA to roll out and manage the program! Click here to learn more about these important changes for residential solar electric contractors.
