The Power Committee of Salt River Project recently expressed concern over the utility cost-savings printed by one of our competitors in their recent mailer. SRP’s director of customer programs, Lori Singleton, estimates that eighty percent of their solar customers (more than 7,000 households) lease their systems. Herein lays the misunderstanding concerning utility savings and lease payments. In a survey of SRP customers who have installed rooftop solar, however, sixty-four percent of respondents rated their solar contract with a 9 or 10, 10 representing outstanding service.
SRP provides free workshops to their customers considering installing solar to help avoid any misunderstandings. Their next Residential Solar Basics workshop will be Saturday, February 22, 2014, 9:30–11:30 a.m., ASU Polytechnic Campus, Student Union bldg., Cooley Ballroom, 7001 E. Williams Field Road, Mesa, AZ 85212. This workshop will feature solar presentation on how residential solar electric system works, various financing options, and rebates available SRP’s Solar Energy incentive program.
