Description
SRP is two entities: the Salt River Project Agricultural Improvement and Power District, a political subdivision of the state of Arizona; and the Salt River Valley Water Users' Association, a private corporation. The District provides electricity to more than 825,000 retail customers in the Phoenix area. It operates or participates in eight major power plants and numerous other generating stations, including thermal, nuclear, natural gas and hydroelectric sources. SRP is involved in several LFG energy projects. SRP has installed a solar thermal dish at the Salt River landfill near Phoenix (owned by the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community) where electricity is generated from solar thermal heat and LFG. SRP is negotiating with the Indian community to construct a 6 MW LFG energy generation facility on their closed landfill, Tri-Cities. SRP is purchasing the LFG at both of these landfills from DTE Biomass. In addition, SRP is negotiating to purchase LFG energy from three other landfills in the Phoenix metropolitan area.
