AMPS - Residential Load Growth

The tribe began construction of a major residential development called Mesquite Creek on the reservation in 1991. Mesquite Creek is owned by the tribe and is located along Boundary Cone Road in Arizona. This became the first area of the reservation to have electric service provided by AMPS.

The original developer of Mesquite Creek agreed to pay for the installation of all the electrical distribution lines and associated equipment within the development. The developer was given three years from the time of completion to have all the meters on line. Also under this agreement, AMPS will buy the distribution facilities from the developer over a 20-year period.

As of 2003, 105 homes have been built in the Mesquite Creek development.
