Relocating to Arizona

Discovery beckons

TEP's corporate headquarters is located in downtown Tucson, where residents enjoy a magnificent Sonoran high desert setting with majestic mountain peaks on the near horizon. The region offers high-quality educational institutions, clean air, warm temperatures and rich cultural resources.

TEP and its sister company, UniSource Energy Services, also maintain operations in northern and southern Arizona. These smaller communities combined with the unparalleled outdoor recreation opportunities offer lifestyles that appeal to active individuals and their families.

Here’s a taste
Natural Diversity Our Santa Cruz River valley is one of the longest inhabited areas in the country, rich in history, beauty and remarkable diversity of animals and plants that make up our natural habitat. Cactus stands salute the horizon. Green in shades of olive and edamame mingle with golden beige and yellows in a rainbow of color.

Hiking When you live in a place that's this stunning, you’re called to explore. Tucson has hundreds of trails, from urban trails to cool desert canyons to mountaintop trails that spill into the desert from higher, lush elevations. Grab a good pair of boots, a backpack and some water bottles. Some vistas are calling.
Cycling Tucson is consistently ranked among the best cycling cities in the U.S. About 9,000 cyclists participate each year in El Tour de Tucson, but we also feature cycle-focused festivals such as Cyclovia, as well as other challenges and tours. For those who prefer their fresh air on two wheels, The Loop is more than 130 miles of car-free trails and paths that connects the metro Tucson area.
Take a spin
University of Arizona Years before Arizona was a state, the UA’s first graduating class in 1895 consisted of three students. Today, the school is a leading research institution and one of the nation’s top public universities, with about 45,000 students, two independently accredited medical schools and a reputation for innovation. You’ll learn we love the phrase “Bear Down,” we’re fond of all things Wilbur and we favor red and blue.

Sunsets Just as we begin to lose daylight, magic happens.
Don’t just take our word for it
Food Simply put, We like to eat, and we like to eat good food. In fact, we often boast that we have the best 23 miles of Mexican food in the entire country – and we have yet to be corrected on that point. Tucson became the first UNESCO City of Gastronomy designated in the United States in 2015, honoring our historic and creative food cultures.
