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.

Member Services - Budget Billing

  • Budget Billing



On this plan, the amount you owe is recalculated every month based on the last eleven (11) months’ kilowatt-hour usage plus the number of kilowatt-hours used in the current month. Though the plan helps makes your payments more even, the amount you pay is not the same every month.


On this plan, your payment is the same every month. The amount is calculated once a year based on the last eleven (11) months’ kilowatt-hour usage plus the number of kilowatt-hours used in the current month. Every May the account is evaluated and adjustments are made if necessary.


Your name must appear on the account.
Your account must have a good credit history. This means that there must not be no more than two delinquencies within the last 12 months and no disconnects for nonpayment.
Your account must be on a residential or small non-residential rate. If your account is on any other rate, please contact a key accounts representative.
Other charges will be added to the monthly budget amount.
If you fail to maintain good credit, you will immediately be returned to the regular billing plan and not allowed to participate in the Budget Billing plan again until you have reestablished good credit. At this time, it is your responsibility to let us know if you wish to resume participation in the program.
Your account must be paid in full before changing it to budget billing.
