As Arizona’s largest and longest-serving electric company, we’re proud of our heritage and past performance. But we recognize new technologies and growing customer expectations are leading to rapid changes at our company and in our industry.

We generate safe, affordable and reliable electricity for more than 1.2 million retail and residential customers in 11 of Arizona’s 15 counties. By 2030 we expect to add 700,000 new customers. We plan to meet those customers’ needs through innovation and excellent service.

There’s more to us than electricity…Our corporate vision is to create a sustainable energy future for Arizona. The use of innovative smart technologies, renewable energy sources and energy efficiency are key components of our efforts to meet that vision. We make decisions with the goal of creating long-term corporate value and adhering to our Code of Ethics and Business Practices. We consider our societal, economic and environmental impact, now and for generations to come.

Our long-term approach to sustainability… We view sustainability as a business practice, not an initiative or “green” program. We take a long-term strategic approach to our decisions and their economic, environmental and social implications. Sustainability is our business model and is ingrained in our corporate strategic framework.

Investing in renewable energy… By 2025, we anticipate Arizona’s energy needs will be 50% higher than today. That’s why renewable energy is a critical component of our long-range resource plan. By the end of 2015, we expect renewable energy will supply about 10% of our retail customers’ electricity needs. We believe investing in renewable energy makes sense, providing environmental benefits and an economic boost for Arizona.

The mission of Out of Africa Wildlife Park is to create the ultimate animal adventure for all ages, one steeped in fun, immersed in learning, and inspired by a living and colorful world of astonishing wildlife. We strive to foster an appreciation of our planet’s wild areas and wondrous inhabitants by supporting and promoting conservation awareness and action, practicing exemplary animal care, providing education and learning experiences, and establishing broad community support, through a peaceful and interactive relationship with our animal friends, who touch our hearts.

Out of Africa Wildlife Park strives to educate and entertain, to provide an exciting and engaging opportunity to love and respect creation and Creator. It is a place where family and friends gather to experience oneness with animals and each other during safaris, tours, walks, observations, and shows of wild-by-nature animals in their own, natural splendor. In this way, we hope to achieve a kind of oneness with them that will cause us to consider them to be so valuable that we cannot allow them to be lost forever. We continually provide spacious and natural living habitats for animals in need, so they can become ambassadors of their own kind. We have heeded the call of those without a voice, many of whom now border on extinction.

SRP is the oldest multipurpose federal reclamation project in the United States. We have been serving central Arizona since 1903, nearly 10 years before Arizona became the 48th state.

Today the SRP power district is one of the nation’s largest public power utilities. We provide electricity to approximately 1 million retail customers in a 2,900-square-mile service area that spans three Arizona counties, including most of the metropolitan Phoenix area (known as the Valley). We are an integrated utility, providing generation, transmission and distribution services, as well as metering and billing services.

SRP’s water business is one of the largest raw-water suppliers in Arizona. We deliver about 800,000 acre-feet of water annually to a 375-square-mile service area and manage a 13,000-square-mile watershed that includes an extensive system of reservoirs, wells, canals and irrigation laterals.
