Advancing development of solar and other renewable technologies is at the core of SRP’s business.
That’s why we’ve committed to cut our greenhouse gas emissions by a third by 2035 — a goal we’ll achieve by retiring coal-fired generation and increasing the amount of solar we use to power our customers’ homes and businesses.
We’ve already invested in almost 300 megawatts of solar generation, while carefully balancing the interests of our customers. It’s our job as a nonprofit to deliver reliable power at the best possible price, all while considering the environmental impact of what we do. We do that by investing in solar and renewable technologies that deliver the biggest impact for the best value.

We opened our first solar generating facility with dedicated battery storage in May 2018 — stretching the power of solar beyond sundown. We’re working on a second such project in Chandler in conjunction with Tesla. And, we’ve incentivized our customers to explore battery storage with a rebate of up to $3,600 for a home system.
Successfully delivering water and power to the Valley for over 11 decades takes a lot of planning for the future. Here are five ways SRP is doing just that.
To reduce carbon emissions and invest in new utility-scale solar energy by 2025, SRP has issued an RFP for up to 400 MW of new solar energy. This comes on the heels of Storey and Sonoran Energy Centers being announced in November.
Navajo Nation continues to demonstrate its commitment to transition to renewable energy with the completion of Kayenta II, a 28-megawatt addition to the solar facility.

SRP customers will see an increase in solar thanks to a plan that will add 1,000 megawatts (MW) of new solar energy to our system by 2025. The plan will accelerate both the pace and the total amount of our solar energy resources by 700 MW compared to current resource plans during the same timeframe.
