For more information, see the “FAQ” and “Technical Requirements” tabs. The “Installation Resources” section contains information on how to find a licensed solar installer and how your installer can submit the appropriate solar application to connect to the UES network. TEP provides you with an interconnection agreement. You have 30 calendar days to sign and return the interconnection agreement. As soon as both parties sign the agreement, the interconnection project will continue. The decision to install a photovoltaic installation on your property must be made after taking into account a large number of factors. Local building rules, the availability of sunlight, maintenance requirements and the cost of other alternative energy options such as wind must all be taken into account in your decision to install solar power generation. In most populated areas of Arizona, a solar generator is less expensive than other forms of renewable production, such as wind. This is especially true if your home has a south-facing roof, which is shade-free for most of the day. Contractors must pass a solar market exam with AZROC in order to obtain the correct licensing ranking. Some license classifications may be confusing and a contractor`s license status may change at any time. The latest information and licensing rules can be found on the Arizona Registrar of Contractors website at AZROC.
