SRP Basic Price Plan
This is SRP's standard price plan. Customers who stay on this plan typically don't use a lot of energy, are seasonal visitors or find that other plans aren't a good fit for their lifestyle and household.
- Energy prices are the same no matter when you use energy.
- Prices go up slightly when energy usage in a month exceeds certain levels, which vary in summer.
The Basic plan could be a good fit for you if:
- Your home is small to average in size.
- Someone is often home during the day.
- You use major appliances, but not on a daily basis.
- You are a part-time resident.
You can also sign up for the Basic Price Plan by calling (602) 236-8888 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Basic plan prices
Energy is priced per kilowatt-hour (kWh) and your monthly energy charge is based on the total amount of energy used during your billing cycle. The amount used in your home is constantly monitored and recorded by the meter. For example, if you use a 1 kWh appliance for three hours, you use 3 kWh of electricity.
Why are energy prices higher in the summer?
The kWh or unit cost of energy is different in winter and summer regardless of your price plan. The price you pay rises and falls with the demand for electricity. During the coolest months, customer usage, generation costs and the price you pay are lowest. During the hottest months, customer usage skyrockets and generation costs to meet peak demand are highest.
