Packing a big punch from a small office
Hours before energy regulators approved a small surcharge on residential solar this month, the head of a little-known consumer advocacy group played wingman to the solar industry’s lawyer.

Negotiators quietly forged 11th-hour net metering compromise
As it turned out, Arizona’s battle over solar net metering wasn’t what it seemed.

Defeated ‘solar team’ weighs in: ‘Chickens coming home to roost’
A year before the Arizona Corporation Commission began formally considering reductions to rooftop solar panel incentives, Arizona voters rejected three Democratic commission candidates who billed themselves as the “solar team.”
The powers that be
As it reaches a climax, the months-long campaign to reduce a key incentive for residential solar has given Arizonans a glimpse into a nearly obscure but powerful body of regulators that oversees some of Arizona’s biggest industries.
Passionate about solar
Hundreds of solar energy advocates rallied to protect their interests before the Arizona Corporation Commission approved a compromise plan to reduce a key rooftop energy incentive. The debate provided a glimpse into an obscure but powerful group of regulators and raised questions about the future of energy in the state.
Energy regulators approve smaller solar surcharge
In a blow to Arizona Public Service, energy regulators agreed a few minutes ago to a compromise proposal charging users of solar rooftop panels with a fixed fee of 70 cents per kilowatt.
The new charge, which will begin next year, is only a fraction of what Arizona Public Service sought – which was to reduce savings from the solar incentive by roughly half.
Commissioners appear to favor compromise on rooftop solar incentives
Arizona’s energy regulators appear to be much closer to a compromise than either wholesale approval or rejection of a proposal to reduce by half a key rooftop solar panel incentive, based on proposals they submitted to resolve the issue.
Advocates urge commissioners to preserve rooftop solar savings
Arizona’s energy regulators hunkered down this morning in front of an overflowing hearing room as users of solar rooftop panels urged them not to stifle the growth of residential solar in the state.
Regulators set to referee solar net metering fight
