Printed copies no longer available
SRP is no longer offering printed copies of the Electric Service Specifications manual or other external Standards books. All Standards books can now be accessed electronically.
There are several reasons for this change, primarily safety and sustainability. Electronic copies ensure that the latest information is readily available (printed materials can quickly become outdated, which may pose safety risks) while also saving resources, such as paper, postage and packaging.
If you have questions about this change, please email Engineering_Standards@srpnet.com.
