Five renewable-energy advocates hope to win seats next month on the Salt River Project board of directors, where they could vote on matters such as the type of power plants the utility builds and how much it charges its 1 million customers for electricity.

With two such advocates already serving among SRP leadership, the election could shift the public utility to support more policies that promote alternative energy such as solar.

They face incumbents on the board who say the public utility is doing fine with its modest goals for renewable energy, and who warn that relying too heavily on alternative energy could drive up prices.

The candidates are running mostly low-key political campaigns for the April 3 election.
