A utility in southern Arizona is attempting to head off the proliferation of private solar leasing rooftops and exercise control over where installations occur by installing its own systems on customers’ houses.
Tucson Electric Power (TEP) has announced it will launch a Residential Solar Program in the spring for 500-600 of its 414,000 customers.
Under the terms of the program, customers will pay a one-off $250 administration fee to join and TEP – in partnership with ‘local solar companies’ – will install and maintain household systems.
