Using the project plan portal
You can use the SRP Plan Portal to manage all of your projects. Project types will fall into one of these three categories based on their requirements.
New, upgraded or relocated power service
For projects requiring new, upgraded or relocated power service, which includes multifamily, subdivision, individual residence, commercial or apartment complex.
For power or water projects needing a review for conflicts with existing SRP facilities. This includes requesting a lease or license of SRP or USA property or encroachment on SRP’s transmission rights of way.*
Temporary electric service
For projects that require temporary electric service for commercial purposes, including construction sites, business kiosks, portable classrooms, cleanups or property showings.Find out more about setting up temporary service
Estimating power-related job costs
Every construction project is unique, and SRP wants to partner with you to be sure yours runs smoothly. Many of our developers have requested rough estimates of SRP’s construction charges in order to prepare project budgets in advance of breaking ground.
To assist you in this effort, we’ve provided more detailed information about our pricing policies below. Construction fees vary based on services requested.
Need help? Email DDE@srpnet.com. Someone will respond within 24 hours Monday through Friday.
Basic estimating assumptions
The estimated charges shown below are based on:
- Construction jobs that include up to 1,000 feet of primary construction
- Customers providing all trenching and conduit needed for construction
Exact charges will be determined after thorough plan review and discussion. Explore the resources below for information on pricing based on your project.*
- Flat rates for individual residential development of five lots or less
- New residential subdivisions
- New residential multi-unit projects: For pricing for new residential multi-unit projects such as apartments, condominiums and townhomes, please email DDE@srpnet.com. Someone will respond within 24 hours, Monday through Friday.
See our construction process
Our team is ready to work with you at each step of your construction project to ensure you’re connected to power and water services.
Together, we will:
- Gather information in Predesign
- Design a customized plan to connect your project to power
- Assign specific Customer Construction instructions
- Make sure everything is installed correctly with a thorough Inspection
See information on available electrical service capacities for proposed development projects within SRP's service territory. Request a will serve letter.
After you submit your plans in the SRP Plan Portal, an SRP representative will work with you to gather information about your project, including:
- An initial set of project plans
- A completed SRP Plan Review Request form
- A completed Request for Design form
Developers seeking new or upgraded electrical service are required to submit preliminary site plan documents to initiate the infrastructure design and construction process.
Next, we’ll meet to review your plans, discuss responsibilities on the Customer Checklist and develop a timeline.
Once we meet with you and review your documents, we'll design a plan for your project.
When you receive these design plans, known as redline prints, you'll:
- Have an opportunity to review and request any changes
- Be asked to have the property blue staked by Arizona 811
- Be provided with a list of SRP survey requirements (control points)
When both parties agree on the plan:
- We'll give you an Owner Agreement that you'll complete and return. (See a sample)
- If your power lines will cross other properties, we'll have you obtain Owner Agreements from those property owners as well.
- We'll provide a contract for you to review that will detail what SRP will construct, what you'll construct and any required fees. (See a sample)
You can either pay in full or make two payments:
- The first 25% payment covers design fees and is non-refundable.
- The final 75% payment is due 60 days before your project is connected to the power grid.
After you sign the contract and submit your first payment, we'll provide your construction prints.
Construction can begin once you:
- Receive construction prints that detail your construction responsibilities and ours, including the inspections we'll perform along the way.
- Attend a preconstruction meeting with your SRP design consultant to review your construction prints. You can arrange to have any additional contractors attend this meeting too.
To ensure a smooth inspection, complete the following steps first:
- Establish a billing account.
- Have letter of authorization ready if street lighting is included.
- Inspect all trench and conduit work as well as any three-phase transformer pads.
What SRP will inspect
Here’s an overview of what SRP will inspect:
- Your trench and conduit as well as any pads you install for our equipment
- Your service entrance sections (or SES/meter panels)
Your part of the construction is considered complete when:
- You've passed 100% of our inspections
- You've received an electrical clearance – typically from the city or county
- You've executed all necessary easements
- You've submitted all payments and contracts
SRP construction process
Construction typically begins within seven days of your final inspection. During this phase, our construction crews will connect your project to the power grid.
Your team of construction consultants, supervisors and foremen will work with you to stay on your timeline and will be in regular communication.
Prior to inspection, make sure to have your billing account set up. Here are the steps:
- Complete the billing details form along with the meter load summary form for each meter socket in order to establish your utility account.
- Once you've completed the forms, contact SRP at (602) 236-0777(602) 236-0777 or email email@example.com.

Time frames can vary greatly depending on the nature of your project and the scope of work required. It can take anywhere from a couple of days for a small project to multiple months for a more complex project.
There are things you can do to help move the process along. Being responsive to requests for information and making sure that contractors get their work done in a timely manner can greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to get a meter.
SRP will need to inspect any trench and conduit work, as well as any electrical panels that SRP will meter. Call the SRP Inspections number. This number is listed within the "Contacts" box on your job print. SRP Inspections groups are determined by locale.
A redline print is basically a fully completed utility design that will be given to you early in the design process for review and approval. It is a bid-quality product designed to help you engage contractors before construction prints have been produced.
