Utah Towns Take The Blue Sky Challenge

August 2009 - Three Utah towns, Alpine, American Fork and Lindon, are taking on a community challenge from Rocky Mountain Power to reach a 5% participation rate in the utility's Blue Sky voluntary green power program before September 30, 2009. In the Blue Sky program, power customers can buy renewable energy certificates (RECs) in blocks of 100 kilowatt-hours for $1.95 per month.

To encourage residents to participate in the program, each of the three cities has agreed to purchase 700 kilowatt-hours of RECs. Also, Alpine has helped foster renewable energy by passing an ordinance allowing residents to install their own wind turbines in their backyards to generate their household electricity.
