SRP gets 1st approval for proposed Price Road Corridor project

At the conclusion of public hearings held July 24 and 25, the Arizona Power Plant and Transmission Line Siting Committee recommended approval of a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility (CEC), for an SRP power line project that will help support economic development in the Chandler area known as the Price Road Corridor.

The committee approval is the first step of the application submitted by Salt River Project to the Arizona Corporation Commission that proposes using Price Road as the route for a double-circuit, 230-kilovolt power line to be constructed from the existing Knox Substation to the RS-27 substation.

SRP is seeking approval for 4.8 miles of a new overhead transmission line from the Knox substation to a new RS-27 substation. The line runs generally along the south side of the Loop 202 and then adjacent to the Gila River Indian Community boundary north of the substation site. A major portion of the line would be placed underground with the City of Chandler paying the difference between building the line overhead – SRP’s standard – and the added cost of putting them underground.

The ACC will address the application and is expected to make a final determination on the CEC application at a regularly scheduled open meeting. For complete project information, visit PriceRoadCorridor.com or call the toll-free line at (855) 584-1484.

SRP is a community-based not-for-profit public power utility, serving about 1 million customers in Maricopa and Pinal counties.
