In addition to working directly with our customers, SRP works closely with community agencies that help customers facing financial and personal hardships. If you’re having trouble paying your SRP electric bill for any reason, help is a phone call away.
Community action agencies or programs provide a variety of services, which may include utility assistance, rental or mortgage assistance, food boxes and other needs. For a full list of community action agencies across the Valley, including outside of SRP’s service territory, visit SRP’s Agency Referral Page.
How to request bill assistance
1. Call SRP Customer Service
To learn what resources are available to you, call (602) 236-8888 (English) or (602) 236-1111 (español). SRP’s customer service representatives are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

2. Connect with an SRP Customer Resource Counselor
SRP’s Customer Resource Counselors can connect you with community agencies that may be able to help with utility bills and other living expenses. SRP customers will be referred to agencies based on where they live.
3. Connect with a community action agency
Once connected with an agency, you’ll be given specific instructions on how to apply for financial support. The agency can also explain how and when your bills may be covered once your eligibility is determined and funding is approved.
