SRP is experiencing unprecedented growth in our power service territory, while at the same time going through a major transition towards a more sustainable resource portfolio.  SRP's latest forecast projects 2,200 megawatts (MW) of new demand for electricity in the next decade, almost a 30% increase from our peak demand today of around 7,600 MW. In addition, SRP has committed to retire 1,300 MW of coal-fired generation by 2032.  This will create a need for new power generation resources that ensure that SRP continues to deliver reliable power to our customers, while meeting our sustainability goals and maintaining affordable rates.  This position is an opportunity to join a high-performing team that is on the leading edge of implementing this critically important resource transition.
