Receive an added $1,250

* $500 per installed kW, up to $2,500 per home, limit of one incentive per household

Data + Battery Management: How It Works


  • During regular system usage: your home runs on energy produced by your solar system and complements it with power from the battery and/or the grid.


How it works - Regular Use


  • During an event: your battery will discharge at the pilot’s maximum allowed power, leaving you with enough storage in case of an outage.
    Meanwhile, you’ll still be able to source energy from the grid to keep the entire household running, uninterrupted.
How it works - Peak Demand Event


  • After an event: your solar system will automatically recharge your battery after the event ends.
How it works - Blackout

What is the APS Residential Battery Pilot?

The Residential Battery Pilot is designed to help battery owners save money. The 3-year pilot runs year-round. There are two options for participating in the pilot:

  • Data Only
  • Data + Battery Management

Am I eligible for the pilot?

You may only participate if this is your first time connecting a battery to the grid. Ask your installer about SolarEdge Energy Hub with advanced home backup, offering the power to keep you on even when the grid is off.

AND you must be:

  • A current APS residential customer.
  • On Time of Use (TOU) or a grandfathered service plan with a rate rider.

You may also participate by adding a new battery to an existing SolarEdge system.
No installer? Tell us more about your needs and be connected to a local installer in your area.

How much money can I earn with the APS pilot?

The incentive you receive depends on how you choose to participate in the pilot:

  • Customers who share their battery data with APS are eligible for a rebate of $500 per installed kW up to $2,500 per home.
  • Customers who share their battery data and allow APS to use energy stored in their battery on days of high demand are also eligible for an additional one-time incentive of $1,250 per home (up to $3,750 per home total).

There is a limit of one incentive per household. The pilot is subject to change by APS at any time

How do payments work?

All pilot incentive payments are made by your local utility company Arizona Public Service (APS)
SolarEdge is not responsible or liable for any incentive payments.

APS endeavors to process payment checks to participants with or without Battery Control within 4 weeks of permission to operate the battery.
