Visit srpnet.com/HEA to learn more and schedule a Virtual Home Energy Assessment or call (602) 236-3065. Customers do not have to own a home to be eligible for an SRP Home Energy Assessment. In some cases, however, property manager approval may be needed.
During the summer months, air conditioners can account for 50 percent or more of a customer’s total utility bill. Smart thermostats increase an air conditioner’s efficiency. LED bulbs use five times less energy and last up to 15 times longer than traditional incandescents. By switching five most-used bulbs in a home, customers can save up to $75 per year.
