Large Purchasers of Green Power


Ogden City (UT)


May 2007 - Ogden City (Utah) Mayor Matthew Godfrey announced a citywide campaign to encourage residents and businesses to join the city in supporting the development of a sustainable community and energy supply by choosing renewable energy through Rocky Mountain Power's voluntary Blue Sky program. Under the program, utility customers can purchase 100-kWh monthly blocks of wind energy for $1.95 per block, or 1.95¢/kWh; businesses can buy wind energy in larger quantities with prices ranging from 0.71¢/kWh to 1.94¢/kWh depending on the number of blocks purchased. The wind energy is sourced from projects located in the western states.

The city challenge will run from May 1 to October 31, with a goal to have 5% of Ogden residents and businesses sign up to purchase green power. The city itself currently purchases enough wind energy to offset 19% of the electricity that the city uses in its buildings.
