The SRP public process allows the public to provide valuable feedback to the project team prior to SRP filing an application with the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC).

SRP had planned on holding in-person open houses; however, based on the current situation with COVID-19, SRP modified these to be live online open houses. The live online open houses include an informational presentation and responses to questions received via email prior to the event. SRP has also set aside time to respond to questions during the open house.
