Blue Sky Funding Available for Community-Based Renewable Energy Projects

Salt Lake City—Rocky Mountain Power’s Blue Sky program is now accepting funding applications for renewable energy projects.

The program, funded by more than 44,000 Blue Sky customers, is available to help cover the cost of installing renewable energy systems for non-residential, community-serving organizations within the Rocky Mountain Power service area. Those systems include solar, wind, geothermal, etc.

“Rocky Mountain Power selects projects that are innovative, have high visibility and educational value in the community,” said Keven Hoopiiaina, Renewable Energy program manager. “Our Blue Sky customers have made these projects possible and are helping to create a more sustainable energy future in their communities.”

Blue Sky provides an easy and convenient way for customers to support the development of renewable energy resources in the western United States, for as little as $1.95 per month.

Since 2006, the Blue Sky program has added 128 renewable energy projects across Utah, Wyoming and Idaho and supported more than 1.9 billion kilowatt-hours of renewable energy, which has the same environmental impact of eliminating greenhouse emissions from 165,000 cars. This year the program expects to have close to $2 million available for new renewable energy projects.
