SRP Customers Wanted to Share Electric Vehicle Information

Patty Garcia-Likens, SRP

Will Help Prepare the Grid for Increased Energy Usage

Salt River Project is encouraging its customers who own electric vehicles to join the SRP Electric Vehicle (EV) community and receive a $50 Amazon gift card. SRP is plugging in with EV customers to better understand how they use energy.

“The information provided by EV owners will allow SRP to better estimate the number of EVs in our service territory, understand customers’ charging habits and help us to maintain the reliability of the grid,” said Lori Singleton, director of Emerging Customer Programs for Solar, Sustainability and Telecom.

The outreach program will give customers a chance to participate in future focus groups and surveys aimed at creating custom programs for EV owners, Singleton said. 

Alicia Abel recently registered her 2012 Nissan Leaf with SRP and has been a fan of electric vehicles since the 1990s, when she and her dad converted their car to an EV. 

“My main motivation for investing in an electric vehicle has always been for the environment, but I’m so impressed now with how far the technology has come along,” the Mesa resident said. “It’s so important for this industry to be successful, and I’m glad to see SRP is preparing for the growth of EVs in the Valley.”

SRP’s fleet consists of 1,100 alternative-fuel fleet vehicles including 17 electric vehicles and 40 electric fork trucks. SRP also has charging stations at many of its buildings for fleet and employee EVs.

Customers who provide their contact information, address, upload a photo or scanned image of their EV registration and take a brief survey will receive the $50 Amazon gift card.  Already, nearly 500 customers have joined.
