The Phoenix metropolitan area consistently ranks among the safest places in the U.S. to do business.
Why? Its geographic positioning means a low risk of earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes and wildfires.
Although temperatures sometimes hit triple digits, SRP's electrical system is built to handle even the hottest days. In fact, our customers routinely rank us among the top in the nation in power quality and reliability.
But that's only part of the story. Despite Phoenix's reputation for a hot climate, the area's temperatures are actually mild for the majority of the year. Arizona routinely rates among the lowest users of energy per capita in the U.S.
All this means less risk of lost work time, greater security for your infrastructure and the ability to control costs related to facility heating and cooling. SmithGroup estimates that data centers using direct evaporative cooling, for example, could potentially operate up to 70% of the year without chillers.
That's why the Phoenix area has become a key destination for mission-critical components of international corporations and for companies looking to maximize productivity across the calendar year.
