SRP Launches 'Don't Fry. Get Shade.' Campaign Customers to Receive Free Car Sun Shades to Promote Energy Efficiency

Salt River Project will be surprising unsuspecting Valley residents in its service territory with complimentary car sun shades during the month of June. 

During the "Don't Fry. Get Shade." Campaign, 7,500 car sun shades will be handed out to remind customers the importance of placing shade screens on their windows at home. 

We all know how hot it gets inside a car during the summer months. SRP wants to remind customers the same thing happens in their homes because windows account for about 50 percent of the heat that enters a home. Installing shade screens on east-, west- and south-facing windows is one of the most effective and affordable energy-efficiency upgrades. 

SRP also offers customers a rebate of 80 cents per square foot on professionally installed shade screens. To learn more, visit

Nomadic Ice Cream Rolls 

The Guilty Pleasure: Thai-style ice cream rolls
Where to Get It: Nomadic Ice Cream Rolls
Price: $3 (small), $6 (large)
What it Really Costs: Your last ounce of willpower because these rolls are too much fun to resist. 

Just in time for summer, a new ice cream dessert has landed in Arizona: Thai-style ice cream rolls.
These popular treats, first sold across Thailand's night markets, started popping up in New York City last summer including at specialty ice cream shops like I CE NY and 10Below Ice Cream. The novelty dessert has reportedly inspired hordes of ice cream lovers to stand in long lines and endure wait times upward of 40 minutes. 

But what are ice cream rolls, exactly? The dessert is pretty much what you might gather from its name: ice cream, rolled into artful little scrolls, then sprinkled with toppings such as whipped cream, cookie pieces, candy, and whatever else might be on the menu. 

Nino McCurley, owner of the Nomadic Ice Cream Rolls ice cream cart in El Mirage, says he is the first to bring the dessert to Arizona. On Tuesdays and Thursday nights from 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., and on the weekends from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., you'll find McCurley making the Thai-style ice cream rolls inside the snack bar at Gateway Park, a sprawling 13-acre park near the intersection of Peoria Avenue and El Mirage Road in the far northwest Valley.
