What Are the APS Rate Increases and Do They Affect Me?
What Are the Rate Increases?
Benjamin Franklin said, "Nothing in life is certain except death and taxes", he was almost right. What our founding father forgot to include was the inevitable APS rate increases we experience on a yearly rate.
Without fail your bill will go up 4%-6% annually like clockwork and in 2017 they made an increase of a staggering 78%! Now we know why old Ben looks so disappointed.
What Can I Do?
You may be thinking to yourself, “That can’t be true, my beloved utility company would never treat me like that”. Well don’t take our word for it, visit APS and see for yourself. You may have missed the letters sent out detailing these annual increases, but on their own website APS is required to post this year's proposed jump.
As all of us are dependent on electricity, we don’t have many options. One is to write our Governor requesting to intervene with the rate hikes. Another is going with a renewable energy source like solar.
The best way to combat annual rate increases is to lock in a fixed price for your electricity by installing solar on your home. You will pay a flat rate every month with no risk of the cost ever increasing. The best part is, once the system is paid off, your utility bill will disappear, and you can sit back and watch the money pile up.
