Tax Expense Adjustor Mechanism (TEAM)

What is the Tax Expense Adjustor Mechanism (TEAM)?

The TEAM is a charge or credit that passes along the cost or benefit of tax law changes to customers.

How does this affect my bill?

For 2021, the TEAM will be a credit of approximately three-tenths of a cent per kilowatt hour (kWh) to pass along tax savings from reduced federal corporate income tax rates.

For residential customers with average monthly usage of about 800 kWh, this results in a bill credit of about $2.64.

Where does the TEAM appear on my bill?

The TEAM appears under Delivery Charges.

Do other utilities have mechanisms like this?

Yes. The Arizona Corporation Commission has approved similar mechanisms for other Arizona utilities, including Arizona Public Service.
