AZTEC ‚ÄĒ Aztec Utility Director Delain George¬†said the city hopes to promote solar in the city by bringing the rates in line with what non-solar customers pay and by buying excess solar produced by customers.

The City Commission voted unanimously to move forward with the process of changing those rates. The new rates will go into effect on Jan. 1 pending final commission approval. The meeting can be viewed on the city’s YouTube channel.

This comes after the city had for years defended its rates during public meetings as a way of preventing non-solar customers from subsidizing the cost of providing service to solar customers. The higher rates for solar customers were based on average electric use and were recommended by consultants the city hired in 2016.
