Before signing any agreement, you should take the time to read the fine print thoroughly, get the responses back in writing and ask questions. Some questions you may want to ask:
Before agreeing to install a PV system at your home, you should review all of the requirements of Arizona Revised Statutes Sections 44-1761 through 44-1764. Trico requires all solar Interconnection Applications received on or after January 1, 2016 to be complaint with all requirements set forth in Arizona Revised Statutes Sections 44-1761 through 44-1764.
If you feel you have been the victim of consumer fraud, contact the Arizona Attorney General’s Tucson office at (520) 628-6504, you can also file complaints online at azag.gov.
Trico can assist all members with the installation of qualifying solar water heating systems in their homes. Trico offers an upfront rebate equal to $0.40 per kWh of energy saved during the solar water heating system’s first year of operation.
