Tucson Electric Power Company Key Developments

Tucson Electric Power Company Exchange Offer for 3.05% Senior Notes Due 2025 Expires June 29, 2015

Tucson Electric Power’s (TEP’s) offer to exchange up to all $300 million aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 3.05% Senior Notes due 2025 for an equivalent amount of its 3.05% Senior Notes due 2025 registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, expires on June 29, 2015, unless extended. The Old Notes were issued and sold by TEP in February 2015 in a private offering. Tenders of Old Notes must be made before the exchange offer expires and may be withdrawn any time prior to the expiration of the exchange offer. The exchange offer is being made to satisfy TEP’s obligations under a registration rights agreement entered into in connection with the issuance of the Old Notes, and does not represent a new financing transaction.

Tucson Electric Power Builds New Transmission Line in Pinal County, Arizona

Tucson Electric Power, or TEP, has announced that it is building a new 500kV transmission line in Pinal County, Arizona. The line will extend approximately 41 miles from the Pinal Central Substation east of Casa Grande to TEP's Tortolita Substation, located southeast of the Red Rock area. Field crews are installing high-capacity wires, new metal poles and additional substation equipment for the new line, which will expand access to renewable energy projects and help meet future energy demands in the Tucson metropolitan area and surrounding region. The line's route, most of which passes though state-owned land, was identified after TEP conducted community meetings and studied its potential impact on natural, cultural and visual resources in a public process that began in 2008. TEP designed the project to minimize disturbance of native vegetation, wildlife and cultural resources. The Arizona Corporation Commission approved the route in 2012. More than half of the line's approximately 180 steel poles - each 150 to 190 feet tall - have been installed, and construction crews will begin stringing wires next month. Work on the project is being performed by TEP with assistance from Atkinson Construction. The $76 million project is expected to be completed in December. TEP also is nearly finished with upgrades to three 138-kV transmission lines that link substations in the Tucson metropolitan area. Improvement projects like these help to prevent power outages and allow TEP to restore service more quickly when outages occur. The upgraded 138-kV lines will be in service before the summer, when energy demand reaches its peak and powerful thunderstorms can damage equipment.
