    Tucson Electric Power Co. has proposed a new rate structure for future customers with rooftop solar that would cut credits for excess solar production and mandate time-of-use rates with new monthly charges.

    TEP filed its solar proposal recently in the second phase of a rate case decided in February, which resulted in an $8.50 increase to the average home customer’s monthly bill.

    TEP also has proposed expanding its company-owned solar programs, including community-based projects and a pilot program of utility-owned rooftop systems.
