Viewpoints: Salt River Project, the nation’s largest public electrical utility, only gets about 5 percent of its power from renewable sources. That’s not nearly enough.
Salt River Project has a rich history of providing dependable and affordable electricity to its ratepayers, which number nearly one millionaccounts and about two million people in metro Phoenix.
The nation’s largest public electrical utility, SRP’s electrical district ended 2014 with a $40 million surplus on just under $3 billion in revenues. Fiscal responsibility, high quality customer service, dependable electrical service and overall sound management are hallmarks of the utility.
Yet, SRP’s progress toward renewable energy deployment is poor.
