In all 15 counties in Arizona that it operates, APS offers a solar energy calculator to help residents and homeowners figure out approximately how much they will save, and how much they will ultimately spend in a given month on power once they have solar panels and/or solar water heaters installed on their homes or commercial spaces.
This nifty tool is available right on the APS web site and offers two different kinds of calculations. First, there is the calculation that residents can use when they sign into their online APS account. What this solar savings calculator does is gather information from the previous months history to evaluate savings in an individualized manner–in this respect, a homeowner can know within relatively precise detail what they can expect to save in energy expenses when they have solar panels and/or a solar water heater installed on their home.
The next type of APS solar calculator is a tool that consumers can use to determine more generally–and without signing in–what they can expect to save when they install solar equipment on a home in Arizona. This general sort of solar calculator gives users data based on energy usage in a given area/county and creates data based upon averages.
Both solar energy savings calculator tools are quite useful and a great utility offered completely free of charge from APS. When you have decided to install solar equipment on your Arizona home, use the calculator to figure out your potential savings–you’ll be quite pleased with the figures you see!
