Rocky Mountain Powers

In this episode of This Green Earth Noah Miterko a representative from HEAL Utah talks about the upcoming Utah Public Service Commission hearing. This hearing will consider Rocky Mountain Powers request to decrease the rooftop solar export credit by 84%.  According to HEAL Utah that rate is so low that it would essentially destroy the rooftop solar market - and industry - overnight.

Chris Cherniak with guest host Katy Wang have a great show today. Summit County continues to expand their implementation of renewable energy, this time with the installation of solar panels and vehicle charging stations at the Transit Center and Richins Building.  The County's Sustainability Program Manager, Lisa Yoder, joins us to discuss these installs and several other projects the county has going on with respect to electrical energy retrofits and the savings they provide.
