Power Lines Over CAP Canal

Here’s a big job: Imagine moving 456 billion gallons of water across 336 miles of the Central Arizona Project canal.

During the journey, the water travels uphill a total of 2,900 feet.

It takes CAP a significant amount of power to lift Colorado River water from Lake Havasu to the terminus south of Tucson.

Our diversified power portfolio, which now includes renewable supplies, seeks the most efficient, cost-effective sources of power.
