SRP BECOMES CERTIFIED AUTISM CENTER

More than 3.5 million Americans are living with an autism spectrum disorder, according to the Autism Society, and many of those are adults who often struggle to find employment that supports their needs.

To help solve this growing issue, SRP is the first water and power organization in the country to become a Certified Autism Center™ (CAC).

Granted by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards, this certification demonstrates that SRP is committed to bringing a more diverse pool of employees to the table.

“SRP is always looking for ways to become a more inclusive employer, and becoming a Certified Autism Center supports that aim wholeheartedly,” said Stephanie Winn, Manager of Talent Acquisition.

Early in 2019, SRP was the first company in Arizona to partner with The Precisionists Inc. This allows SRP to create job opportunities for people on the autism spectrum, harnessing their special talents and providing valuable employees for the utility.

Since the partnership began, SRP has employed 11 associates through the program and plans to expand it across the company.

FIX A LEAK WEEK

Are you ready to chase down leaks? According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) WaterSense program, the average household’s leaks can account for nearly 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year, and 10% of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day.

As one of the Valley’s leading suppliers of water and an EPA WaterSense partner, we promote Fix a Leak Week March 16–22. But remember that you can find and fix leaks inside and outside of your home to save valuable water and money all year long.

Common leaks to look for:

  • Worn toilet flappers: Put food coloring in your toilet tank. If it seeps into the bowl without flushing, there’s a leak.
  • Faucets, pipes and hoses: Fixing faucet leaks can save up to 140 gallons a week.
  • Irrigation systems: Inspect all components of your watering system, from the backflow preventer to the valves, for standing water, soggy ground or eroded soil. If you have a smart controller, check that the program settings are correct.

THROW SUMMER A CURVEBALL BY ADDING SHADE SCREENS

We all know that summer brings a lot of heat which can enter your home in different ways. In fact, half of the heat that makes its way into your home comes through the windows. This makes shade screens one of the most effective and affordable energy efficiency upgrades. While blocking heat gain, shade screens can protect your home’s interior from sun damage, provide added privacy and cut cooling costs by up to 20%.*

SRP is offering customers a rebate of $0.80 per square foot on professionally installed shade screens to keep their homes cooler during Phoenix’s summer months. Visit srpnet.com/shade to learn more and find a contractor visit srpnet.com/shade

*Results may vary based on orientation, size of window(s) and screen material.

DID YOU KNOW?

Since 1998, the first full week of March has been promoted as National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW), with a focus on protecting Americans from scams, identity theft and other unfair and fraudulent business practices. March 1–7 marks the 22nd annual NCPW and SRP is proud to join forces with Utilities United Against Scams.

Keep these tips in mind so you can easily spot a scam. Scammers will:

  1. Pretend to be from SRP It may even say it on the caller ID.
  2. Threaten power disconnection. They’ll threaten to turn off your power unless a payment is made, usually in an hour.
  3. Demand payment. They’ll ask for payment with prepaid cards such as MoneyPak and Vanilla or with cryptocurrency such as bitcoin.

SRP will never demand immediate payment, threaten same-day disconnection or accept prepaid cash cards or cryptocurrency as payment, whether over the phone or in person. Learn more tips to keep you safe at srpnet.com/scam.srpnet.com/scam
