ASU solar-system installations on the Tempe, West and Downtown Phoenix campuses are facilitated, in part, by Arizona Public Service's (APS) Renewable Energy Incentive Program.  This program offers financial incentives to customers, such as ASU, who add renewable-energy systems to their homes and businesses.  The program is funded by APS customers and approved by the Arizona Corporation Commission.

Solar-system installations on the Polytechnic campus and ASU Research Park are facilitated, in part, by Salt River Project's (SRP) EarthWise Commercial Energy Incentive Program.  This program offers financial incentives to customers, such as ASU, who add renewable-energy systems to their businesses.  The program is funded by SRP customers and approved by the Arizona SRP Board.
