The Arizona Corporation Commission modified the state’s net metering plan in a move that will costs solar customers a little money every month, but not nearly as much as Arizona Public Service Co. wanted. Commissioners voted 3-2 to charge solar customers 70 cents per kilowatt of installed solar on their homes every month to help defray some costs non-solar customers.
