We are five new candidates running for the SRP Board of Directors, the governing body for SRP that sets your electric rates and determines SRP’s water and electric policies.  These five candidates want SRP to embrace clean energy where SRP has a terrible track record:

  • Existing SRP Board of Directors took away rooftop solar choice for its ratepayers in 2015 by mandating a rate plan that eliminates the return on investment.
  • Solar power makes up an embarrassingly small amount of the SRP energy portfolio. <1% is generated from solar right here in "The Valley of the Sun".
  • These SRPCleanEnergy.org candidates want to fix these and other issues.  The election is held by mail now through April 3, 2018. Request a ballot now to receive a ballot in the mail!

1) I have ballots with lots of names I don’t know—who do I vote for?
Below are our endorsements for our pro-solar candidates of course, along with just 2 others we endorse as known pro-solar allies:
  • All SRP Areas/Divisions can vote for Corey Hawkey and Randy Miller for the Power District (white ballot).
  • Division 2: Vote only for Corey Hawkey and Randy Miller (at-large). Leave others blank.
  • Division 4: Vote only for Corey Hawkey and Randy Miller (at-large). Leave others blank.
  • Division 8: Jeff Grout on both the white “Power” and blue “Water” ballots; and vote for Corey Hawkey, Randy Miller (at-large)
  • Division 10: Sheila Motomatsu on both the white “Power” and blue “Water” ballots; and vote for Corey Hawkey, Randy Miller (at-large)
  • Being an even-year election, all Even Divisions (2, 4, 6, 8, 10) get additional names to vote for Division Director and Council, for both the Water (blue ballots) and Power (white ballots).
Vote only for the candidates names listed above.  Leave others blank unless you know they are pro-solar.
2) Is it to late to request ballots from SRP?
SRP will take request for ballots until March 23 and will send them by mail.  See the “Request A Ballot” page for more information on how to request a ballot.”
3) My SRP Board of Directors ballot shows a fractional vote (like 0.25), is that all my vote is worth?
No (and yes).  When voting for Corey Hawkey and Randy Miller (at-large), the property you are voting is worth at least one whole vote.   This is how votes are tallied for these “At-large” seats.   And if there are two people on the deed, there are two votes for that property—both names should request a ballot.  But if the property is in a Trust, only one the first name to request a ballot gets to vote once for the property.   For the Divsion Board and Council races, this year being the even numbered Divisions, it is correct that the acreage based vote count shown on your ballot applies.
