We joined with the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority (NTUA), Navajo Nation leaders and surprise guest Jonathan Scott of HGTV’s Property Brothers to officially break ground on the second phase of the Kayenta Solar generation facility, a renewable energy plant that provides green power to the Navajo Nation.

NTUA will expand the Kayenta Solar facility to include Kayenta II, a 28-megawatt (MW) addition, which is expected to be commercial by June 2019. At that time, the entire Kayenta Solar facility will produce enough energy to serve about 36,000 homes.

The Kayenta II project serves as a platform for future ventures in which NTUA and SRP will work together toward the development of up to 500 MW of renewable energy projects over the next five to 10 years within the Navajo Nation to further support their goal of charting their own energy future.

“This project represents a significant addition to SRP’s growing list of renewable resources, and we are extremely honored to work alongside NTUA to bring this amazing facility online. We look forward to carrying on our decades-long partnership with the Navajo Nation as we pursue new opportunities together through the Kayenta Solar facility and other significant efforts,” said SRP Vice President John Hoopes.

Property Brothers star Jonathan Scott, who made a surprise visit to the ceremony, said he is very interested in the potential for solar energy and wanted to see up close what it can do for the Navajo Nation.

PREDICTABLE MONTHLY PAYMENTS

Managing your budget is easier when you know how much you’ll pay. SRP Budget Billing™ balances the seasonal highs and lows of your energy bill for a more consistent monthly payment.

How does it work? Your energy costs are averaged over the year so you pay the same amount each month. Periodically, your usage will be reviewed and your monthly payment may be adjusted based on changes in usage or electricity prices.

What are my payments going to be? If you have 12 months or more of billing history, you can view your estimated Budget Billing payment by logging in to your account at srpnet.com/myaccount. If you have less than 12 months of history, call (602) 236-8888 to get an estimated monthly payment based on various characteristics of your home.

Safety information for you

October is National Fire Prevention Month. SRP Safety Connection™ and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) urge you to protect yourself, your family and your property in the event of a fire. Prevention and planning are crucial to fire safety. FEMA suggests installing and testing smoke alarms; reviewing and practicing escape routes; and adding fire extinguishers at your home. Go to srpnet.com/safety for more information to help keep you and your family safe.

 

ON-PEAK HOURS CHANGE NOV. 1

If you are on the Time-of-Use, Electric Vehicle, Customer Generation or Residential Demand Pilot price plan, higher-priced (on-peak) hours are 5-9 a.m. and 5-9 p.m. Monday through Friday, November through April. If you participate in the EZ-3 plan, there is no seasonal change to on-peak times.

Holiday Reminder

If you participate in the SRP Time-of-Use™, SRP EZ-3™, Electric Vehicle (EV), Residential Demand Pilot or Customer Generation price plan, all hours Thursday, Nov. 22, will be lower-priced (off-peak) in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. Regular prices will be in effect Nov. 23. For the EV plan, super off-peak hours are in effect from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. every day.

 

LOWER PRICES RETURN NEXT MONTH

Lower prices begin with the November billing cycle. Your November bill will reflect winter pricing schedules, which are effective through the April billing cycle. The price you pay for electricity rises and falls with the seasonal demand for energy. The price is lower in the six cooler billing months (November through April) and higher during the six warmer billing months (May through October).

IT'S TIME TO ADJUST YOUR WATERING SCHEDULE

As one of the Valley's largest suppliers of water, SRP reminds you that as the temperature begins to fall, you'll need to water your landscaping less frequently. Make sure you water thoroughly and deeply at each watering. This way, roots are encouraged to grow deep into the soil where they'll be better protected from the cold winter months. Find out how much water is needed for your plants and check out water resources at srpwater.com/conserve.

 

ENJOY SRP'S CANAL BANKS SAFELY

With the weather cooling down, you may decide to take advantage of SRP's canal system and go for a walk, bike ride or jog. Before you head out, follow these tips to avoid drowning or injury as canals can be very dangerous:

  • Never jump in to rescue objects or pets. Call the appropriate services for help.
  • Keep a safe distance from the edges of canals. Canal sides are extremely slick, making it difficult to get out.
  • Swimming, canoeing, kayaking, water-skiing and tubing are not allowed in the canals.
  • Stay away from automated equipment at water delivery gates.
