Arizona AG Objected to Rate Increase that Discriminated against Solar Users

Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes filed an application for rehearing of the Arizona Corporation Commission’s decision to approve a request by Arizona Public Service Company that included a rate increase for residential solar customers only. In her filing, AG Mayes described the increase as “a discriminatory rate unsupported by any evidence in the record.” Furthermore, she argued that the “circumstances of the approval of the additional charge for residential solar customers violated the parties’ due process rights to meaningful participation.” AG Mayes urged the Commission to reconsider the decision and either eliminate the discriminatory increase or set a rehearing on the issue.
