Tucson Electric Power


In the 1880s, electric power came to Tucson, but it wasn't until 1892 that a handful of business and community leaders formed a company that developed into the enterprise known as Tucson Electric Power, the principal subsidiary of UniSource Energy Corportion. Presently, TEP the Tucson Electric Power distributes power from five modern plants in Tucson, east-central and northern Arizona and in northwestern New Mexico.
The company's work force developed from numerous employees working within shouting distance of each other to nearly 1,200 in scattered locations. Tucson Electric Power's utility operations are regulated by the Arizona Corporation Commission. From power plant construction to transmission line planning, Tucson Electric Power is busy in preparing for Southern Arizona's energy future. The addition of two new units to their Springer Ville generating station will more than double the plant's output, growing the availability of coal-fired power in a region where energy demands are on the rise.
Tucson Electric Power is dedicated to stimulating communities through their volunteering and grant programs. TEP is the proud sponsor of Tucson Electric Park, spring training home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Chicago White Sox. TEP has taken important steps to protect wildlife from electrical equipment, a task that needs constant effort and innovation. At Tucson Electric Power, they recognize that a clean, safe and healthy environment is necessary to the community's well-being. That's why they dedicate so much of their energy to preserving or improving their quality of life.

They are an active community partner, dedicated to constantly improving the quality of life for all of them who call Southern Arizona home. TEP is committed to providing safe, reliable electric service.
