APS Residential Battery Pilot

Receive up to $3,750 in incentives by participating in the Arizona Public Service (APS) Residential Battery Pilot.

Two ways to earn

Adding a home battery lets you use clean solar energy any time—even when the sun isn't shining. It also offers backup energy when you need it. Now, through the APS Residential Battery Pilot, you can earn money two ways with your battery.

Data only

Allow APS to access data related to your battery system’s operation to help them learn how batteries create value for customers and the grid. Eligible participants can earn a rebate of $500 for every kilowatt enrolled, up to $2,500 per home.

For example, a single Enphase IQ Battery 10 can earn up to $1,920 for enrolling in the program and granting data access. Two IQ Battery 10 units would be eligible for the maximum $2,500 rebate.

Data and battery management

Earn even more if you also allow APS to use energy stored in your battery when demand is high. Participants are eligible for an additional $1,250 per home, bringing the total potential incentive to $3,750 per home.

APS expects to call upon enrolled batteries for additional power to meet demand up to 100 times per year. In both options, participants will be enrolled for a term of three years. Participants must be APS residential customers and must be on a Time-of-Use (TOU) service plan or a grandfathered service plan with a solar rate rider. They must also be connecting their battery to the electric grid for the first time. Customers with existing batteries are not eligible to enroll.
