3 TIPS TO KEEP YOU SAFE DURING THE MONSOON
It’s that time of year again when monsoon storms bring heavy rains, lightning and high winds that can snap utility poles and down power lines.
Follow these tips to avoid danger and stay safe:
- If you encounter a downed power line, stay at least 100 feet away and call 911 to report the location.
- If traffic lights are down, treat intersections as four-way stops and proceed with caution.
- Steer clear of flooded roads. It only takes 6 inches of water to cause a vehicle to float.
Visit srp.net/bizoutage to learn what you should do in the event the power goes out at your business.

YOUR ENERGY USAGE COULD ACTUALLY EARN YOU MONEY
The SRP Business Demand Response Program™ (BDR) pays participants to reduce energy use temporarily in response to peak conditions on the grid. By participating, your company can earn payments without sacrificing operational reliability, which helps strengthen the grid and increase sustainability efforts.
This could mean anything from rescheduling required maintenance to shutting off nonessential equipment when called upon and could result in significant earnings.
Our exclusive BDR provider, Enel X (formerly EnerNOC), works with customers to develop custom energy reduction strategies designed to minimize disruption in your facilities and maximize your program earnings.
Visit srp.net/BDR to learn more about the program and all of the benefits in addition to monetary payments.

DID YOU KNOW?
Right now, almost 80% of Arizona’s forests are overgrown. Dense brush and small overcrowded trees create fuel for catastrophic wildfires. These wildfires can upset forest ecosystems and pollute our water supply with ash and debris.
To tackle this challenge, SRP has partnered with federal, state and local governments and nonprofits to support the strategic thinning of 500,000 acres by 2035. Strategic thinning of overgrown forests will reduce wildfire risk and protect communities and water supplies. In addition, SRP customers can be part of the solution by signing up for the SRP Healthy Forest Initiative™, which allows customers to donate $3 a month on their electric bill. These donations, along with SRP matching contributions up to $200,000, will be used for strategic forest thinning projects. Together, we can restore overgrown and unhealthy forests in Arizona.
To help out with this important effort, join the SRP Healthy Forest Initiative for as little as $3 a month. Visit srp.net/forest to learn more.
