SALT LAKE CITY — More electric vehicles could be silently whizzing down our roads because of comprehensive efforts underway by Rocky Mountain Power. The energy company filed for a $4 million federal grant to place electric vehicle (EV) chargers along 1,500 miles of highway in Utah, Wyoming and Idaho, and provide incentives to convert business cars to electric vehicles. Rocky Mountain Power also submitted a plan this week with Utah regulators to develop incentives for EV charging stations.
PORTLAND, Ore. — Pacific Power has contracted with the owners of seven renewable energy projects to acquire the renewable attributes of those projects to help meet the Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) of Oregon, Washington and California. Four of these projects are new solar projects scheduled to begin operation in Oregon in the fourth quarter of 2016 to deliver power to the PacifiCorp energy grid. Two other new solar projects in Utah achieved commercial operation in the past year.
SALT LAKE CITY — Rocky Mountain Power has named Jon Cox as its new vice president of government affairs. Cox has been a senior advisor and communications director for Utah Governor Gary R. Herbert. He also is a former member of the Utah House of Representatives and Sanpete County Commissioner.
September is National Emergency Preparedness Month and Rocky Mountain Power encourages its customers to review their emergency plans and emergency kits before winter weather sets in this year. National experts in emergency preparedness remind citizens that the time to prepare for any emergency, including a power outage, is before it occurs.
