Right on track with my 18 kWh, considering the relative sizes of our arrays. Mine face a bit west of south, which could account for the slight difference from theoretical.

Gone...,
You mean no rebate for a PV system INSTALL in AZ if the system DC rating is over 5kW?

Or, AC rating?
or is it 5 MW (not kW)?
Thanks

Here in AZ we have two power company's in the Phoenix area. APS does not limit to how larger your system can be to get a match of the rebate. I have the other company SRP which has a match limit of 5kw. If you go any larger you get the IRS 30% but your on your own after that so most people stop at the 5kw system size.
