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.
Trico Foundation awards $450,000 in scholarships
The deadline to apply for a scholarship for the 2020-21 academic year has passed. Check back in January 2021.
Since its inception in 1983, the Trico Foundation has awarded more than $2.5 million – benefiting over 600 students – in scholarships to Trico Members and their dependent children.
A selection committee made up of area educators reviews all scholarship applications and determines which students receive a Trico Foundation scholarship. The committee is independent of the Trico Board.
The Trico Foundation is a non-profit organization that grants scholarships to Trico Members. The Trico Foundation is funded by current Trico Members’ and past Members' unclaimed or donated capital credit retirements.
