Blue Sky Program Overview
When You Support Blue Sky, You Help:
- influence the future of energy production
- encourage the development of new renewable energy in our region, which benefits local economies
- preserve the environment and conserve resources for future generations
How does Blue Sky work?
- You buy renewable energy in 100 kilowatt-hour (kwh) increments, called blocks, for just $1.95 more per block per month.
- Rocky Mountain Power buys renewable energy certificates on your behalf equal to your Blue SkySM purchase and may help develop small-scale renewable projects in the communities we serve.
- You can buy as many blocks as you'd like. Ten blocks per month covers about 100 percent of a typical home's electricity use.
- Participation is voluntary. You can cancel your enrollment anytime by calling us at 1-800-769-3717.
- Rocky Mountain Power does not profit from the Blue Sky program.

Real benefits now and for the future
Buying one 100-kwh block of Blue Sky each month for a year is as good for the environment as planting nearly 18 trees or not driving a car for 1,613 miles!*
We're doing our part, too
In addition to offering the Blue Sky program, Rocky Mountain Power also generates and purchases renewable power from regional facilities for all customers as part of our resource mix. By the end of 2012, our company will either own or purchase enough renewable energy to supply electricity to more than 467,000 average homes!
