The Arizona Public Service Company (APS) has implemented a $51.9 million energy efficiency package, offering programs to help families and small businesses save money as they attempt to weather COVID-19.
The measure was approved by the Arizona Corporation Commission, marking APS’s first approval in three years. Playing a big part in that was Arizona Corporation Commissioner Lea Márquez Peterson, who wrote to the company at the beginning of September to request that it utilize pending energy efficiency programs as a Customer Relief Package.
In doing so, it could prioritize measures like limited-income home weatherization, energy efficient HVAC systems, and smart thermostats that would provide immediate short-term and long-term relief for those in need.
