Invest in a Clean Energy Future

March is a vital month for Utah Clean Energy!

Through March 1 - 30, we participate in Love Utah Give Utah, a statewide giving campaign that culminates into an amazing 24-hours of philanthropy on March 30th. Love Utah Give Utah is a chance to raise needed funds, meet new supporters and spread the word about how we can work together to clean our air, water and safeguard our climate.

Through Love UT, Give UT, Small Gifts Make a Big Impact
Utah Clean Energy is one hundreds of nonprofits working to keep Utah a wonderful place to live, work, and play. Part of the fun for Love Utah Give Utah is the friendly competition amongst Utah’s nonprofits working to recruit the highest number of “unique donations” through Love Utah Give Utah. Every $10 donations helps Utah Clean Energy get on the “Leader Board” which not only helps spread the word about our work, but puts us in the running for some amazing prize money!

Rooftop Solar Workshops for Municipal Utilities

Utilities across the country are grappling with a changing energy landscape as new technologies, including rooftop solar, change the way customers interact with the grid. Utah Clean Energy is working with The Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP)®, a leading expert on the evolution of the power sector, to lead a series of workshops to help municipal utilities and local policymakers understand and address the growth of rooftop solar technologies. Workshops are open to all municipal power and local government representative and are free to attend.

Please RSVP for each workshop:

 

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Each workshop will begin with a presentation from RAP focused on a specific topic, including the grid impacts of distributed solar (April 13), solar valuation and cost/benefit analyses (May 11), and rate design alternatives to net metering (June 15). The remainder of the time will be available for questions and discussion. These targeted workshops will offer municipal utilities and local government officials in Utah an opportunity to exchange ideas, engage in group problem solving, and gather lessons learned from other states. Municipal representatives can expect to build upon their knowledge and toolset to evaluate net metering programs, consider alternative rate designs for rooftop solar, and create policies that are fair for all customers and designed to keep utility costs low in the long term.

ABOUT RAP:

The Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP)® is an independent, non-partisan, non-governmental organization dedicated to accelerating the transition to a clean, reliable, and efficient energy future.

We are former utility and environmental regulators, industry executives, system operators, and other policymakers and officials with extensive experience in the power sector.

RAP’s global team has first-hand knowledge of the constraints and challenges policymakers face. Building on peer-to-peer relationships, RAP helps energy and air quality regulators and NGOs navigate the complexities of power sector policy, regulation, and markets. Policymakers and other stakeholders depend on RAP staff for reliable and relevant information and assistance.
