Salt Lake City—Rocky Mountain Power was recognized nationally for its work in growing the voluntary market for renewable energy through the Subscriber Solar program.
Subscriber Solar, which began last year, provides customers a cost-effective option to use solar energy without installing rooftop panels.
Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) presented the company with the Green Power Leadership Award, which recognizes organizations for their role in promoting and expanding the use of clean, renewable energy. The awards were presented at the Renewable Energy Markets 2017 conference in New York City.
“Rocky Mountain Power is transitioning to more sustainable solutions for our customers and we have been working to make sure they have the option to use more renewable energy for the lowest cost,” said Bill Comeau, Rocky Mountain Power customer solutions director. “We are honored to be recognized for this effort and will continue to work to expand options for our customers.”
More than 2,500 residential, commercial and community customers have subscribed, and the program is now asking those interested to join the waitlist for when an additional plant is completed.
CRS presented Market Development Awards to 10 winners in four award categories:
- Green Power Market Development: A Better City, Google Inc., Pacific Gas & Electric Company, Rocky Mountain Power, and WGL Energy.
- International Green Power Market Development: Apple Inc.
- Leadership in Green Power Education: Clif Bar & Company, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, and RE-volv.
