Bighorn Fire Update

As scheduled, Trico turned off its generator to perform maintenance earlier this morning (7-6-2020).  The maintenance was completed, and the generator was refueled.  The generator has been restarted and is currently operating.

Power has been restored to most of Mt. Lemmon.  This includes, Summerhaven, Radio Ridge, Soldiers Camp, Mt. Bigelow, Organization Ridge, Palisades, Girl Scout Camp and Willow Canyon.  The east slope of Mt. Lemmon remains deenergized.   

Trico continues to work with fire officials to assess the extent of any damage to the line serving Mt. Lemmon.  It may be necessary to deenergize certain lines as firefighters continue their work.  We will continue to provide updates on our website ( and on social media.

Thank you to the firefighters who continue to do a great job of protecting Mt. Lemmon.

If you have questions, please contact Trico dispatch at 520-744-2944. We will continue to provide updates at and on social media.

Trico offers financial assistance for Members during COVID-19 crisis

Trico Electric Cooperative is committed to helping our Members and the communities we serve as we face the health and economic challenges presented by the COVID-19 emergency.

In partnership with the Trico Foundation and the Trico Electric Charitable Trust, Trico has adopted a COVID-19 Assistance Program that will provide bill credits and payment extensions to qualifying Members who are negatively affected by this pandemic.

“As a non-profit, member-owned utility, putting our members first is a guiding principle that has never been more important than it is now,” said Vincent Nitido, Trico’s CEO and General Manager. “We will continue to support our membership and the communities we serve throughout this crisis.”

Qualifying Members, including individuals and small businesses, can apply for bill assistance through a quick screening process that can be found here.
