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 (trico.coop) 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 www.trico.coop and on social media.

OPERATION ROUND-UP

MEMBERS HELPING MEMBERS

For less than $1 per month, you can make a difference in your community. By simply rounding up your electric bill to the next whole dollar amount each month, you can help out your community. For example, your electric bill is $82.73. If you participate in Operation Round-Up (ORU), your bill will be rounded up to $83, with the extra 27 cents going to the Trico Electric Charitable Trust (TCT).
