Keeping SRP M-Power® customers safe during Excessive Heat Warnings

Keeping you safe during extreme heat is a priority for SRP. That’s why we will not disconnect power during an Excessive Heat Warning event.

When a heat warning is called

The National Weather Service issues an Excessive Heat Warning when extreme heat is about to happen or is already happening. During these events, SRP will keep the power on for all SRP M-Power customers – even if credit runs out.

Customers who are enrolled in alerts will receive an email or text message from SRP when an Excessive Heat Warning has been called. During this time, you'll still be charged for the energy you use, so it's important to keep making payments to avoid accumulating debt.

During heat warnings, it’s a good idea to pay close attention to your power use. When temperatures are high, more energy is usually needed to cool your home. Your display box will have the most up-to-date information. We recommend keeping at least three days’ worth of power on your meter.

When an excessive heat event ends: Paying off accumulated debt

When a heat event is ending, SRP will send another email or text message to customers.

If you’ve accumulated debt, this message will also explain the balance that’s due to keep power on once the event ends. SRP will provide a date and time range when power will disconnect unless a purchase is made.

The purchase must be enough to cover any accumulated debt and also add credit to keep the power on.

My Account is a good resource

If you haven’t already, log in to My Account and sign up for text or email alerts. Then SRP can notify you about Excessive Heat Warnings (when one has been issued or is about to end), and let you know if you’ve accumulated debt.
