About the project
On November 10, 2021, SRP received unanimous approval for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility (CEC) for the High-tech Interconnect Project. The next step in the process is to go before the ACC for final approval of the CEC in January.
SRP is working with the City of Chandler and Intel on the High-Tech Interconnect Project (HIP), a proposed transmission project that is required to provide reliable power to the recently announced $20 billion expansion of Intel’s Chandler campus. The Intel expansion is reported to be the largest private investment in Arizona history and will be a major economic boost for Chandler, the region and the state, providing thousands of new, high-paying jobs. Read press release.
SRP is working with the City of Chandler to meet the city’s preference to underground a significant portion of the transmission line, address conflicts with existing underground utilities, and ensure technical feasibility of the underground segments. The remaining overhead segments are located within areas that already have overhead transmission facilities or are commercial in nature. The underground portion of the route was approved between SRP and the City of Chandler that allows City to pay for the incremental cost for undergrounding.
The Intel expansion will require SRP to build a new 230kV substation on Intel’s campus, as well as new 230kV transmission lines connecting the campus to two existing substations.
A virtual open house is available and can be viewed on-demand, 24 hours a day.
SRP hosted five LIVE ONLINE open houses prior to filing an application with the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC).
