Corporate Tax Cut Savings Lead APS to Request Decrease in Customer Bills
PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–APS has requested the Arizona Corporation Commission approve a $119
million bill reduction for customers, based on federal corporate tax
cuts, effective February 1, 2018.
If approved, the $119 million decrease will offset the $95 million
revenue increase that resulted from APS’s last rate review. The savings
of $0.004258/kWh will be passed directly to customers through the Tax
Expense Adjustor Mechanism (TEAM), a new adjustor mechanism that was
included in the company’s rate review, and customer savings will vary
with actual energy usage. APS customers would receive the credit on
their monthly bill.
Authorized adjustors reset each year and will impact customer bills
throughout 2018. Bill impact of adjustors will vary with actual energy
usage and service plan. APS anticipates additional tax cut savings will
be available at a later date once the full impact of the new law is
realized. For additional information on how to reduce energy usage,
