The utility’s goal is to increase the quantity and lower the cost of distributed energy in its service territory. The power will help APS meet its growing demand for energy and assist in satisfying the distributed provision of the Arizona Corporation Commission’s Renewable Energy Standard (RES).

The RES requires that by 2025, 15% of the energy APS provides to customers must come from renewable energy sources. The distributed provision states that 30% of the renewable energy must come from distributed sources.
