SRP Plans New Infrastructure for Commercial Customer

Salt River Project has filed an application for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility (CEC) with the Arizona Power Plant and Transmission Line Siting Committee for an upcoming project to provide energy services and infrastructure to a commercial customer in Mesa.

The proposed electrical infrastructure – new power lines, transformers, a switchyard and substations – are to be constructed in right-of-way or on customer-owned property located near the corner of Sossaman and Elliot roads in Mesa.

With the proposed project, SRP will provide customer-requested electric infrastructure while helping support the Valley’s growing technology industry.

As part of the process to site the new facilities, SRP is providing an opportunity for the public to review informational displays and discuss the project with SRP team members at an open house to be held Monday, Oct. 14, 5 – 7 p.m., at the Paloma Community Church (Soccer Complex) located at 3215 S. Sossaman Road in Mesa.

The Power Plant and Transmission Line Siting Committee will review the application at public hearings beginning at 10 a.m. on Nov 5, at the Superstition Springs Golf Club located at 6542 E. Baseline Road in Mesa. A final decision on whether to grant a CEC for the project will be decided at an open meeting of the Arizona Corporation Commission.
