As the Valley prepares for hotter temperatures in the coming months, and customers seek a reprieve, air conditioners will kick into high gear. Here are 10 ways to save both energy and money.
Three SRP crew members, Craig Boggs, Dave Massie and Joshua Shill, were working on a road by the Arizona Canal last month north of Mesa when they noticed a 4-week-old otter struggling to get out of the drying canal. The otter was too small to use the steps that horses and other animals use to get out of the canal if they fall in, so the crew stepped in.
With temperatures expected to rise to a scorching 120 degrees by Monday, your air conditioning unit is likely to be put to some heavy use. During the summer, air conditioning can account for 50%, if not more of your total electric bill. So how do you keep you, your family and pets cool without busting your budget?
Remember Jeff Breckon, the SRP employee who loves to don his Star Wars Stormtrooper costume and bring smiles to young patients? Well, he’s still with the Dune Sea Garrison, the Arizona chapter of the international Star Wars costuming club known as the 501st Legion, making special appearances at community fundraisers, including one for Child Crisis Arizona.
