Why did my APS bill go up?

Why is APS so much more expensive than SRP?

APS peak hours penalize homeowners much greater than SRP for using large amounts of energy by charging a $15 per day demand charge on top of a peak hour rate for almost all of their rate plans. SRP has a demand charge but only for solar customers and the E-27 pilot rate plan. SRP is a non-profit utility company.

How can I save my SRP bill?

If you are on an SRP Time-of-Day Price Plan, set the thermostat to return to a comfortable level during off-peak hours. Turn your air conditioning fan to "Auto." This turns the fan motor off when the unit is not cooling. Using "Auto" rather than "On" can save you $15 to $25 each month on your energy costs.
