SRP's Associate General Manager Vanessa Kisicki praised Mesa for maximizing their business rebates to drive innovation, improve infrastructure, and reinforce the city's reputation as a wonderful place to live and work. She also commended Mesa for becoming a model for other municipalities in reducing energy and carbon emissions while improving air quality for residents and employees.

The partnership between Mesa and SRP is part of the city's long-term commitment to becoming more climate efficient. Since adopting the Mesa Climate Action Plan (MCAP) in 2021, the city has invested $15.4 million in climate projects to help reach its carbon neutrality goals by 2050. This includes replacing streetlights, electrifying Mesa's fleet, and supporting utility-scale solar projects. The city is also working towards increasing renewable energy on the grid through SRP's Solar Choice Select program.

The rebates from SRP come after receiving an $11.8 million grant from the Department of Transportation in January. These funds will further strengthen Mesa's public electric charging network.
