CPS energy proposed new incentives and fees in May to be considered by city council.
Since then they have revised both fees they proposed downward. A one-time install fee went from $450 to $225 and the $1 per kilowatt charge went to $2.50 per 5 kilowatt hours. The utility also plans to give out $20 million in rebates to new solar.
CPS Energy told council yesterday that both fees were necessary to continue funding debt incurred for transmission lines, the cost of which the utility says is falling primarily on non-solar users.
