Welcome to EV Community Central
Our EV community now includes 1,300 electric vehicle owners within SRP's electric service territory. Our grid powers your ride and we want to ensure that it is ready for the increasing number of EVs expected to hit the road in the coming years.
SRP is committed to reducing carbon emissions and supporting EV adoption is part of this. In 2016 83% of our fleet was green, which includes electric, biodiesel and ethanol-capable vehicles. Below are resources related to our EV community meetings, facts about the state of EV adoption in Arizona and more.

EV adoption in Arizona
Electric vehicle ownership has increased dramatically in the last seven years. In 2010, there were only four electric vehicles registered in Arizona. While the adoption rate briefly leveled out from 2014 to 2015, it began to steeply increase again with the number of vehicles going from almost 6,000 in 2015 to over 10,000 in 2017.
The chart above shows EV ownership for the past five years broken down by EV car model or type. Type was used when model was unavailable and categories are: plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (Other PHEV) and battery-only electric vehicles (Other BEV). The registration data displayed is for the entire state of Arizona and provided by the Electric Power Research Institute as obtained from IHS Markit .
