Customer Generation Price Plan
On this price plan, customers with rooftop solar panels can save on the energy they buy from SRP. To maximize savings, use your major appliances during off-peak hours and stagger major appliance usage during on-peak hours.

How it works
Oftentimes, customers who have solar panels need to supplement the energy they generate with power from SRP.
Much like the SRP Time-of-Use (TOU) Price Plan, the Customer Generation Price Plan allows you to save money on your electric bill by using less electricity during on-peak hours. The difference with this plan is that it offers two additional ways to save on your bill:
- The energy charge on this plan is about half the rate of the TOU plan – the lowest of any SRP residential price plan.
- There is a per-kilowatt demand charge, based upon your usage of the energy supplied by SRP. By avoiding the use of appliances during on-peak hours and using appliances one at a time, you can keep the demand charge lower.
This is the plan for you if:
- You want low per-kWh energy prices for energy supplied by SRP.
- You want the potential to save by managing your energy demand.
- Your demand is typically consistent.
You'll see a per-kilowatt demand charge on your bill – it’s based upon your usage of the energy supplied by SRP.
On this plan, your bill is calculated based on three charges:

- Energy charge – This is the amount of power you consume over time. It’s measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh).
- Demand charge – The demand charge is based on 30-minute intervals during on-peak hours when your home uses the most electricity and that electricity is most expensive.
- Monthly service charge – This helps cover the costs of grid access and maintenance. Most customers on this price plan will pay a monthly service charge of $32.44, although those with larger homes may pay up to $45.44 per month.
A reminder about demand charges: On-peak hours are when electricity is most expensive – weekdays from 5–9 a.m. and 5–9 p.m. from November through April and weekdays from 2–8 p.m. May through October. All other hours are off-peak (electricity is less expensive), including weekends and six observed holidays.
Why is my service charge higher than the service charge on TOU price plans? The service charge is higher on this plan than on the TOU price plans because TOU customers pay a higher energy charge and grid costs are partially collected through those rates.
