Renewable Energy Projects:
Salt Lake City’s Salt Palace Convention Center is among the largest rooftop solar arrays in the country. Solar panels cover 600,000 square feet—larger than six football fields—and generate 1.65 MW of power, nearly 17 percent of the Salt Palace’s power demand.

First Wind created the largest wind project in the Utah known as Milford Wind. The development has a total of 97 turbine generators that have a production capacity of approximately 306 megawatts of power, enough to power 64,000 homes.

Utah’s largest ground-based stationary solar array system is in place at Hill Air Force Base. There are 1,170 photovoltaic solar panels installed on five structures with a total energy generating capacity of 230 kilowatts.

Utah has been generating electrical power from geothermal sources near Blundell since 1984. The Blundell geothermal plant has a generating capacity of 36 megawatts of power.

Cyrq Energy operates a geothermal plant near Beaver, Utah that has a power generation capacity of 6 megawatts, which are delivered to Anaheim, Calif.
