To find out more, visit srpnet.com/prices. Basic Price Plan On this standard price plan, energy prices are the same no matter when energy is used. Prices go up slightly when energy usage in a month exceeds certain levels in the summer. Customers on this plan typically do not use a lot of energy, or they find that other plans are not a good fit for their lifestyles. Time-of-Day Price Plans Customers can lower their energy costs by an annual average of up to 7% with SRP s Time-of-Day plans. These plans reward customers when they shift energy usage from higher-priced times to lower-priced hours. Each customer can select the Time-of-Day plan that works best for his or her lifestyle. Time-of-Use To save on SRP Time-of-Use, customers must shift some energy usage to off-peak hours. A higher price is charged for energy used weekdays from 1 8 p.m. May through October and from 5 9 a.m. and 5 9 p.m. November through April. All other times are lower-cost off-peak hours. We saved $425 last year. EZ-3 SRP EZ-3 allows customers to save money and energy by shifting their energy usage outside of three peak hours. By switching to lower-priced off-peak hours, customers can save the most during the hottest months. M-Power M-Power is a voluntary prepay program that uses a special in-home display unit to allow customers to see their real-time power usage, giving them the ability to make more informed energy-usage decisions. On average, M-Power customers use approximately 12% less energy than they did on alternative price plans. Economy Price Plan Qualifying customers with limited incomes can receive a monthly discount ($17 November April and $21 May October) on SRP charges through the Economy Price Plan. Medical Life Support Discount Customers who qualify can receive a $17 monthly discount on their SRP bills while on life-sustaining equipment. A physician must recertify the patient s use of the equipment annually.

(APS) for electricity each year. The compensation obligation was established in a 1928 Association shareholder election. BUSINESS PLANS SRP offers several plans to business customers.
