Salt Lake City Purchases Wind Energy

August 2002 - Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson approved a contract to purchase wind energy to supply Salt Lake's historic City and County Building. Under the agreement, the city will purchase a total of 350 blocks of wind energy each month (or 420,000 kWh annually) from Utah Power, making it the utility's largest wind power purchaser to date. The extra cost of the wind energy will be covered with savings realized from energy efficiency improvements. The Mayor's Office is also working with the Utah Wind Power Campaign and Utah Power to develop a direct mail piece for citizens that will tout the benefits of wind power.

Utah Power offers 100-kWh blocks of renewable energy for $2.95 per month above the standard cost of electricity through its Blue Sky green pricing program.
