SRP project focuses on bringing power to homes on Navajo Reservation

Many on the Navajo reservation still lack access to electricity. Recently, Salt River Project line workers participated in a project called “Light Up Navajo,” a collaborative effort led by the American Public Power Association and Navajo Tribal Utility Authority to speed up the process of providing power to the roughly 15,000 Native Americans living without power on the Navajo Nation. SRP has just released a documentary on the project. We’ll hear more SRP line supervisor Jesus Rodriguez and SRP line foreman Chris Stinski.
