Scottsdale, AZ is an affluent city in the eastern part of Maricopa County, located in the Salt River Valley, or the, “Valley of the Sun” in the northern reaches of the Sonoran Desert with a 2010 population of 217,385, according the to the U.S. Census Bureau. And like its Phoenix neighbor, Scottsdale receives over 300 days of sunshine a year making it perfect for solar energy!
The Arizona Corporation Commission has set an aggressive goal of generating 15% of the state’s electricity from renewable sources, including solar power, by 2025. As a result, the ACC has provided subsidies to Arizona utilities to help lower the cost of solar in Arizona by handing out cash rebates to Arizona residents looking to invest in solar energy. Your solar rebate will depend on where you live and who your utility is as well as the size of the home solar power system you intend to install. For example, Arizona Public Service Co. offers rebates up to around $1.95 per installed watt and the Salt River Project offers rebates up to around $2.15 per installed watt. Please note, that these rates are not permanent…they are dependent on available funding from the state, so if you want to take advantage of these subsidies, act now!
So if you are a Scottsdale resident looking to capitalize on these rebates and invest in solar energy, contact us and we can help you get a residential solar quote from an installer near your neighborhood who can tell you about your utilities rebate program and give you a quote on a solar system so you can start saving today!
