First customer contributes to SRP Healthy Forest Initiative

Reducing wildfire risk and restoring the forested watersheds that provide water to about half of the Valley is why company officials at Terracon, an engineering firm based in Tempe, decided to take action. Terracon is the first SRP commercial customer to contribute to the SRP Healthy Forest Initiative™ (HFI).

A drier than normal winter has been forecasted for the southwestern United States, which includes the forests of northern Arizona, bringing with it the potential for more devastating wildfires that will continue to threaten the state’s unhealthy forests and watershed. Over the last 10 years, large wildfires have ravaged the watershed in and around the Salt and Verde rivers and more of these fires are expected.

The HFI allows SRP customers to invest $3 a month toward strategic forest thinning projects to help reduce the risk and devastating impacts of catastrophic wildfire and protect the health of our forests. If you’d like to partner with SRP and invest in the protection and restoration of our forests, visit srp.net/healthyforest.

Attention all property managers

Energy-efficient communities enjoy lower utility costs, higher property values and greater tenant satisfaction. The SRP Multifamily Solutions Program makes it easy and affordable to make energy efficiency upgrades so your community can start reaping the benefits.

We offer two ways to participate. The first approach is comprehensive. By leveraging a variety of SRP rebates, you can make impactful upgrades to common areas in your community, such as:

  • LED lighting
  • High-efficiency HVAC equipment
  • Electric vehicle charging
  • Shade screens
  • Smart thermostats
  • Pool pumps

The second approach is a program that provides residents with free Energy Savings Kits. Each kit includes four ENERGY STAR® certified LED bulbs, an LED night light and a list of energy-saving tips. Apply for the program today at srp.net/orderkits. If your property is eligible, we’ll ship the kits to you directly at no cost. (The kits are prepacked and ready for contactless delivery to your residents’ doors.)
