Utah Clean Energy’s Commitment to Equity
Utah Clean Energy promotes equitable opportunities to advance the voices of underrepresented communities in our work. We aim to nurture an inclusive environment by elevating, amplifying, and incorporating diverse perspectives.
We work to build strong, reciprocal relationships with diverse community members, organizations, and institutions. Through collaborative opportunities, we elevate underrepresented voices into initiatives that support a clean energy economy and address climate change.
Utah Clean Energy commits to building internal capacity to address equity through staff education, strategic planning, and community engagement. This is an ongoing learning process and we are excited to continue this journey on the path to climate justice.
In January 2001, a volunteer-based public interest group was formed (Utahns for an Energy Efficient Economy) to promote energy efficiency and clean energy technologies to the public and policy makers. During that year, Utahns for an Energy Efficiency Economy increased its involvement in utility regulatory proceedings that affected the deployment of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency.
In 2002, Utahns for an Energy Efficient Economy incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and changed its name to Utah Clean Energy. We broadened our outreach to the clean energy business community, local governments, congregations, and universities/colleges. Through advocacy, education, and diverse partnerships, Utah Clean Energy continues to advance renewable energy and energy efficiency in Utah and the Western Region. Today, Utah Clean Energy has become Utah’s independent resource for clean energy policy, regulatory, and consumer information.
