‘Hostile’ Arizona utility’s restrictive fees force SolarCity to relocate workers to other states

SRPBy Ryan Randazzo | The Arizona Republic

In the wake of Salt River Project’s recent solar rate hike, SolarCity Corp., the largest rooftop solar installer in the state, is relocating at least 85 of its 900 Arizona workers out of state, with more to come.

SolarCity CEO Lyndon Rive said Wednesday the SRP fees approved in February are too restrictive and eliminate the potential to save money with solar for nearly all customers.

“That is bad for the economy,” Rive said. “Arizona is the state with all the sun. All the other states (where we operate) are doubling their solar capacity, and Arizona is shrinking, which makes no sense.”
