Welcome to EV Community Central
Our EV community now includes 2,900 electric vehicle owners within SRP's electric service territory. Our grid powers your ride, and we want to ensure that it is ready for the increasing number of EVs expected to hit the road in the coming years.
SRP is committed to reducing carbon emissions, and supporting EV adoption is part of this. In 2016, 83% of our fleet was green, which includes electric, biodiesel and ethanol-capable vehicles. Below are resources related to our EV community meetings, facts about the state of EV adoption in Arizona and more.

EV adoption in Arizona
Electric vehicle ownership has increased dramatically in the last eight years. In 2010, there were only four electric vehicles registered in Arizona. While the adoption rate briefly leveled out from 2014 to 2015, it began to steeply increase again with the number of vehicles going from almost 6,000 in 2015 to over 18,000 in 2018.
