Reserve your spot today and, if eligible, you'll get up to $1,800 for buying and installing a qualified new battery storage system in your house. The incentive is available for up to 4,500 residential customers on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit srpnet.com/battery to sign up or call us at (602) 236-4448 to learn more.

 

Enjoy peace of mind with Demand Assurance

If you participate in SRP's Residential Demand or Customer Generation price plans, we have a program tailored just for you that will only be offered for a limited time.

Enroll today in the Demand Assurance program and we'll cap your billed demand charge. It won't exceed 3 kilowatts more than your previous 12-month high.

There is no cost and no equipment or installation is needed. Enjoy a little peace of mind. Visit srpnet.com/da or call us at (602) 236-4448 to learn more.

 

We're lowering prices for you

Enjoy lower prices during the May through October billing cycles. In March, SRP's Board approved a temporary price decrease totaling $18.8 million (about 1%) in the fuel and purchased power components of our overall electric prices. This is our third such decrease in the last three years. The actual impact on summer monthly electric bills will vary according to customer usage. Go to srpnet.com/lowerprices for details..

The price decrease reflects lower natural gas costs — savings we're passing on to you. As a not-for-profit company, we make decisions in the best interest of our customers and the communities we serve.

Safety information for you

Parents and caregivers play an important role in teaching children about electrical safety. With summer in full swing and kids out of school, we want everyone to be safe around SRP equipment. That means staying away from any equipment that has a warning label. You should also never climb power poles to retrieve items from power lines. For more electrical safety tips, visit srpnet.com/safety.

Managing water supplies with an eye to the future

To meet customer needs, SRP's water resource team is pulling from 2017 water reserves and using a modest increase in groundwater. Should we experience severe drought next winter, pumped groundwater would provide further water "insurance" along with water from our seven reservoirs.

"Our two Verde reservoirs can hold less than a year's annual flow while the Salt reservoirs can hold three years' normal flow," said Charlie Ester, Manager, Surface Water Resources. "That really creates this balancing act that we do every year in moving the water supply from the Salt River to the Verde and back to the Salt. We need to balance the storage and reduce the chance of spilling water as much as possible. Ironically, in the height of the current drought, we still think about minimizing spill, but that is how you maximize your water supply."

We have been bringing water to the Valley for more than 100 years. "SRP was formed as a result of severe drought. We always plan for drought. That way, all our surprises are welcome wet years," Ester continued.

SRP and City of Phoenix partner to plant trees

To expand the shade tree canopy and promote a more sustainable community, SRP has partnered with the City of Phoenix to remove 400 trees that are encroaching on power lines and replace them with up to 1,200 trees in parks, schools and public areas.

The trees that will be removed through the program could cause safety and reliability issues for SRP and local neighborhoods. It will also help to:

  • Expand regional shade canopy and reduce the urban heat island effect.
  • Remove an estimated 5,400 tons of carbon dioxide.
  • Maintain electric reliability and ensure public safety.
  • Reduce SRP's long-term costs associated with ongoing vegetation management.
