Forward Together: Building a sustainable energy future in Phoenix
SRP has a vision for the future — and a plan. Here’s how we’re innovating for more sustainable communities.
For over a century, SRP has focused on building strategic partnerships and innovative solutions to meet the Valley’s ever-changing needs.
In 2020 alone, SRP customers saved enough energy to power 35,000 homes for an entire year.
Today, we’re planning for a more sustainable future by working to modernize our grid, expand our renewable energy offerings, curb our carbon footprint and conserve our natural resources.
It’s not just about what we’re doing. When we say “Forward Together,” we mean just that. You, our customers, play a leading role too.
In fact, just last year alone SRP customers saved more than 641,000 megawatt-hours of energy through various efficiency programs. That’s enough energy to power 35,000 homes for an entire year.
Since our beginning in 1903, we’ve known that when all of us work together, we move forward together.
See how you can make a difference.
Tomorrow’s innovations start today
Ensuring a reliable future requires experts at SRP, our communities and our customers to work together. Here are the foundational focus areas that will get us there.
To make our grid more resilient, efficient and secure, we use the latest technology available while developing innovative solutions that can be used in the years to come. Many of the infrastructure updates we make give us access to real-time data that can be used to help prevent outages and respond faster when they do occur.
Through grid advancements and solutions like SRP My Account™, you now have more access to information about your daily energy use than ever before, making it easier to find new ways to be more efficient and lower your costs.
Learn how your energy choices impact the grid.
Whether it’s shrinking our carbon footprint or being more efficient with our water use, SRP is committed to doing our part to make a more sustainable Arizona a reality. In addition to our sustainability initiatives, SRP has also pledged to harness the power of the sun on a grand scale, adding 2,025 MW of solar generation available by 2025.
Solar power in Arizona just makes sense. More and more of our customers are discovering the benefits of adding solar to their homes. It’s a simple way to help our shared system and to make your home a little greener.

Bright minds working toward brighter days
SRP was born out of an innovative partnership. While the technology we use has evolved over time, our partnerships are still focused on solving Arizona’s unique problems and propelling our communities forward.
We currently work with a number of energy research institutes and top universities, including Arizona State University, the University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University.

Planning for the future
Many factors are taken into account when SRP creates a roadmap for the future. The planning process, called integrated resource planning, has three overarching objectives:
- Create a plan to grow SRP's energy generation for the next five years.
- Continue to keep costs affordable for our customers.
- Incorporate sustainability goals.
The latest cycle of the process was concluded in 2018 and included extensive outreach to stakeholders and elected officials to ensure it was properly informed and responsive to their needs and those of our customers.
