Nov. 7, 2018: SRP Receives Final Approval for Southeast Power Link Project

Earlier today, the Arizona Corporation Commission unanimously approved a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility for a power line project that will enable Salt River Project to meet growing energy needs in the Southeast Valley.

The approval is the final step of the application for the Southeast Power Link project submitted by SRP to the ACC that allows for construction of seven miles of new overhead 230-kilovolt (kV) power lines. A half-mile of the proposed route will be located in Queen Creek and the remainder in Mesa. The project also includes a new 230/69-kV receiving station. The project will help SRP provide needed electricity for anticipated residential, commercial and industrial customer growth in the general area east of the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
