’Tis the season to give and a great time to consider joining one of three SRP programs focused on giving back to the community.
Throughout the year, we partner with our customers on causes that help reforest Northern Arizona, give solar installations to local nonprofits and help limited-income customers pay their energy bills. Each of these programs works by adding a small monthly donation to your SRP bill. We contribute our part to make twice the difference.
Instead of making all your contributions for the year during the holiday giving season, consider making a monthly gift that will be in place for the year to come. Starting at just $1 per month, here are three easy ways for SRP customers to give back to our community throughout the year.
Help reforest Arizona for as little as $3 per month with SRP Trees for Change
Wildfires have destroyed millions of acres of Arizona’s national forests — lands critical to our air, water supply and quality of life. For as little as $3 a month, you can help revitalize our forests and protect the water you drink. In partnership with the National Forest Foundation, SRP Trees for Change uses 100% of customer contributions for forest projects and matches every dollar up to $200,000 per year.
Together, we’ve planted 1.9 million trees across more than 7,000 acres of forest land. Start making your contribution today.
Help those in need through SHARE, an SRP program that allows us to help our neighbors
In times of crisis, our neighbors may need help paying their electric bills. SRP partners with the Salvation Army and our customers to provide energy assistance to those in need through SHARE (Service to Help Arizonans with Relief on Energy). For every dollar you contribute to SHARE, SRP will make a matching contribution — a minimum of $500,000 per year — to the SRP Bill Assistance program, which helps limited-income customers pay their energy bills.
Together, we can make twice the difference. It’s as simple as adding $1, $2 or $5 to your monthly bill. Get started.
Give the gift of renewable energy to Valley nonprofits
As part of our commitment to both renewable energy and the communities we serve, SRP Solar for Nonprofits does exactly what the name says: builds solar projects for Valley nonprofits. With the help of solar installations offsetting electricity costs, this program enables nonprofits such as the Boys & Girls Club, A New Leaf, the Arizona Humane Society and the Child Crisis Center to reduce operational costs, which means more money can go toward their important missions. Since 2007, SRP and our customers have helped local nonprofits save more than $600,000 with free solar energy systems.
We’ve completed 49 installations and have three in progress, but we want to do more. Get involved today for as little as $3 per month.
These are just three of the many ways that SRP supports the local community by giving back. Learn more about charitable contributions and volunteerism at SRP.
