By the end of 2019, 24 communities in Utah have adopted commitments to achieve 100% clean, renewable electricity by 2030, including some of Utah’s largest cities. 16 of those communities made commitments just this past year, thanks to the dedication of hundreds of local activists and a major win in the Utah legislature.
In March, an innovative clean energy program authorized by H.B. 411, also known as The Community Renewable Energy Act, passed with overwhelming bipartisan approval through Utah’s majority-Republican State Legislature. The Community Renewable Energy Act provides a pathway for committed communities to achieve their goal of 100% clean energy by working in partnership with the state’s utility, Rocky Mountain Power.
