Salt River Project Elections

Everything you need to know to be an informed solar voter

The Salt River Project (SRP) provides electricity service to more than one million customers in the Phoenix metro area. SRP holds elections every two years for its board of governors and councilors. They are responsible for setting rules governing the utility.

This includes your ability to go solar!

Are you eligible to vote?

SRP uses a complicated and restrictive system for voting. All voters must own land in SRP territory and be registered to vote in Arizona.

It’s important that solar supporters like you to participate. The SRP board and council determine your electricity prices, the amount of clean energy generated by the utility, and how much credit you receive for solar produced on your home.
