New Arizona Law Affects RVer Utility Fees

A new law, signed by the governor, went into effect a couple of months ago regarding RV parks and what they can charge for utilities. It is A.R.S. 33-2107.

It is well known that most RV parks charge residents (RV or park model owners - winter or full-timers) a large amount for electric, in some cases as much as 15 to 19 cents per kilowatt hour.

This can no longer be done. RV park owners can only charge the same rate that is charged to a "single family residential rate" by Arizona Public Service, which is currently 8.5 cents per kilowatt hour.

The landlord can recover charges imposed on the park such as a service charge, taxes, etc., but it must be prorated to all in the park receiving electric each month and cannot include charges for electric in the common areas of the park, i.e., office, street lights, heating the pool, recreation hall, etc.
