JULY 2021

July is Smart Irrigation Month

As one of the Valley’s largest suppliers of water, SRP reminds you that July is typically the month of peak water demand for landscapes in Arizona. The Irrigation Association named July Smart Irrigation Month to increase awareness about simple practices and innovative technologies for homeowners. The following tips can help you save money, save water and see better results:

  • Turn on your irrigation system and walk around the yard to look for emitters or sprinkler heads that are broken, clogged or misaligned.
  • Install a WaterSense-labeled smart irrigation controller that uses local weather information and site conditions to automatically adjust watering schedules.
  • Convert sprinkler nozzles to rotating nozzles, which spread heavy droplets of water at a slower pace, making them more targeted and effective.

For water-saving tips, visit srp.net/conservation. For monthly outdoor watering guidelines, text WHENTOWATER to 33222 on the fi rst day of each month.*

SMS text alerts are managed by the Arizona Municipal Water Users Association (AMWUA)

 

3 Tips to keep you safe during the monsoon

It’s that time of year when monsoon storms bring heavy rains, lightning and high winds that can snap utility poles and down power lines. Follow these tips to avoid danger and stay safe:

  1. If you encounter a downed power line, stay at least 100 feet away and call 911 to report the location.
  2. If the traffi c lights are down, treat intersections as four-way stops and proceed with caution.
  3. If you are driving on the freeway, exit if possible. If you are unable to exit the freeway, pull as far over as possible and turn off all lights to reduce the chance of another vehicle using your lights to guide them and potentially colliding with your vehicle.

Finally, it’s a good idea to have an emergency preparedness kit in your vehicle. Visit ready.gov/kit to see what supplies are needed to build your own kit.

 

Electricity is the new fuel

Now is a great time to consider switching to an electric vehicle (EV). Fuel shortages, a spike in gas prices and long lines are concerns that EV owners don’t have to worry about. They can feel more secure and in control knowing their car is powered by electricity at home.

If you will be car shopping in the near future, consider an EV and take advantage of the SRP Plug In and Save EV Rebate™. SRP customers can get a $1,000 rebate when they purchase or lease a new EV from a local dealership. Along with the EV rebate, here are a few other ways SRP enables customers to switch to an EV:

  • SRP EV Charger Rebate: $250 instant rebate on Level 2 chargers purchased from SRP Marketplace
  • EV Price Plan: A plan that off ers super off -peak hours from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. to charge your car
  • EV Community: EV drivers get a $50 bill credit for joining along with access to special off ers and opportunities
  • EV Calculator: An easy-to-use tool that shows their potential savings from switching to an EV

SRP to more than double its utility-scale solar by 2025

In early May, SRP announced plans to more than double its 2025 utility-scale solar commitment to now add a total of 2,025 megawatts (MW) or new utility-scale solar energy to its power system by the end of fi scal year 2025, driven in part by dedicated customer demand for new renewables. This is more than 1,000 MW beyond SRP’s original 2025 commitment of 1,000 MW, announced in November 2018.

As part of this 1,025 MW solar increase, 450 MW is enabled by SRP commercial customers to meet its renewable energy commitments. All the renewable energy purchased is expected to be from solar energy developments built in Arizona or on the Navajo Nation and will ultimately be used by SRP commercial and residential customers.
