How it works
When you sign up for SRP Solar Choice, you can choose to offset half or all of your energy use with clean, renewable solar energy without having to install solar panels on your home. (That means renters can offset their energy use with solar power too!)
This approach is called “utility-scale” solar. Working together with Arizona solar farms, SRP is able to distribute solar energy to customers through the power grid – even ones who don’t have solar panels.
With SRP Solar Choice, you’ll pay just half a cent per kilowatt-hour (kWh) on top of your current price plan. That’s an increase of 2%–4% based how much of your energy use you choose to offset.
For example, if you used 1,500 kWh one month and chose to offset 100% of your energy use, your SRP Solar Choice premium would be $7.50. If you chose to offset 50% of your energy use, your premium would be $3.75.

SRP Solar Choice allows you to support solar without having to install a system or own your own home or business space. Instead, SRP takes on the cost of owning or leasing solar panels, then we sell the energy to participating customers. This approach is called utility-scale solar. It’s an efficient way to provide renewable solar energy to more Arizonans.
SRP Solar Choice is half the cost of our previous renewable energy program, EarthWise Energy. This is a step forward for SRP because Solar Choice supports solar energy on a larger scale.
With SRP Solar Choice, customers will no longer purchase energy from Copper Crossing at a fixed price, simulating a rooftop solar purchase. Instead, enrolled customers will see a half a cent per kWh increase on their electric bill, regardless of what price plan they’re on. SRP Solar Choice works with all residential price plans, except SRP M-Power® (E-24).
The half-cent per kWh charge is a flat rate for offsetting 50% or 100% of your energy usage. It’s a more predictable charge for renewable solar energy. Additionally, customers who were on a time-of-use plan with Community Solar will no longer need to shift their energy use on this plan.
Community Solar was a pilot program created in the early days of utility-scale solar in 2011. All Community Solar customers were purchasing output from a single solar plant. Pricing could be confusing, and it was not always easy to tell how the purchase affected one’s bill. With SRP Solar Choice, SRP is able purchase solar from multiple plants across Arizona. The flat-rate pricing structure is also simpler and more predictable.
SRP Solar Choice offers a way to offset the energy used at your home or business. The actual electricity (electrons) delivered to your home or business is a blend of the resources on the grid.
Your premium payments help cover the costs of offsetting your household or business energy use with clean solar energy. The investment also helps grow demand for solar energy in Arizona while making a difference in the environment today.
