Our commitment to supplier diversity
Diversity helps make our communities and businesses stronger.
This simple truth is why SRP is committed to supporting a broad coalition of diverse business partners. By engaging with woman-, minority- and veteran-owned businesses, as well as LGBTQ and small local businesses, we foster economic empowerment and provide a sustainable Supply Chain marketplace to purchase goods and services.

Calculate your business’s second tier spend
SRP captures second tier spend data through the reporting of our suppliers. They identify the small, local and diverse suppliers they spend money with and provide that information to us based on the amount we spend with them.
As an added value benefit to our customers, SRP supplies a second tier spend formula to help them meet growing requirements to incorporate diversity and inclusion efforts across their businesses.
2021 second tier spend formula:
.0057 x #kWh on your SRP bill = 2nd tier spend with SRP
Second tier spend example:
Company A uses 6,025 kWh per month. Based on the second tier spend formula, Company A could claim $34.34 per month as their second tier spend through SRP.
$.0057 x 6,025 kWh = $34.3425
