Utah Gov. Gary Herbert signed House Bill 411 into law Friday, setting up a framework for communities to move towards using net-100% renewably sourced electricity.
Park City and Summit County backed HB 411, the Community Renewable Energy Act, along with Salt Lake City and Rocky Mountain Power. HB 411 creates guidelines for establishing a renewable energy program between a community and an electric utility, including rates and terms of service. The bill passed in the final hours of the 2019 legislative session.
