Business Partner Program
The Blue SkySM Business Partner program rewards businesses that support the Blue Sky program. Blue Sky is a voluntary program that encourages organizations to support renewable energy as a way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with their electricity use and achieve their environmental goals through a renewable energy purchase that represents a specific percentage of their energy use.
When joining the Blue Sky Business Partner program your business has the flexibility to choose whether your entire organization or a facility within your organization becomes a Blue Sky Business Partner. This flexibility allows an organization to fine-tune its renewable energy purchase.
To become a Blue Sky Business Partner an organization must meet or exceed a minimum percentage of renewable energy (see Table below) that corresponds to the organization's energy use.
Depending on your average monthly electricity usage and renewable power purchase commitment, we can recognize your business through press announcements and identify your business in our Blue Sky promotional materials, which may include paid advertising. See the chart below for recognition information. (PDF)
Rocky Mountain Power actively promotes and recognizes Blue Sky business partners as environmental leaders. Your organization can benefit from this recognition. The Rocky Mountain Power team can help large, medium and small businesses, local government and communities determine renewable energy purchase levels that best meet an organization's sustainability goals, minimize its carbon footprint and bring positive attention to its efforts to "go green". The Blue Sky Partnership program currently has hundreds of partners who are voluntarily purchasing renewable energy.
To help you get started – first evaluate your electricity use for your facility, or an aggregation of facilities, and determine the percentage purchase requirement, considering the minimum threshold to achieve a specific partnership level. Contact Rocky Mountain Power if you have questions. You can download the business partnership enrollment form at the bottom of this page. See our calculators to determine the environmental impact of your purchase or compare your costs between Blue Sky Block and the Blue Sky Quantity Savings options.
