Tempe, Ariz.-based utility Salt River Project (SRP) has launched a public process to review and, if appropriate, revise its sustainable portfolio principles that were established in 2004. SRP says these principles direct its acquisition and use of renewable energy resources, as well as efforts toward energy efficiency.
SRP's board of directors has set a goal for the company to meet 15% of its retail electricity requirements through sustainable resources by the year 2025. Currently, SRP is ahead of schedule, providing about 7% of retail energy needs with sustainable resources, including renewable energy, hydro power, conservation, efficiency and pricing measures.
The public is invited to participate in workshops to be held March 3 and 21 and April 1 at SRP's PERA Club, located at 1 E. Continental Dr. in Tempe, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Attendees are instructed to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb. 17. Comments can also be directed to email@example.com on or before Feb. 17.
