PHOENIX -- Salt River Project has delayed its proposal to bring high-voltage power lines to Chandler and Sun Lakes neighborhoods.

Officials with the utility company said they're continuing to work with the Gila River Indian Community on an alternative plan.

SRP had planned to apply for state permission to bring the 230-kilovolt power lines through neighborhoods in south Chandler next month.

That application has been postponed until as late as Aug. 1, 2014.

SRP said the new power lines are needed to keep up with demand, particularly along the Price Road Corridor.

However, residents in Sun Lakes and south Chandler have protested the proposal that would bring 130-foot poles through their neighborhoods.

SRP recently released a potential route through the Gila River reservation. That alternative still requires approval from several entities.
