SALT LAKE CITY — From the Hogle Zoo Lights to the Moab Christmas tree lighting and parade, communities throughout Utah are getting support from Blue Sky participants to “green” the energy used to power their holiday lights.

Together, these holiday lighting displays are being “greened” with about 115 megawatt hours of renewable energy. The impact of this effort allows these communities to reduce their carbon footprint by a combined 47.15 tons of CO2.

“Powering lights for community holiday celebrations is a century-old tradition for Rocky Mountain Power.” said Keven Hoopiiaina, Blue Sky program manager. “Blue Sky customers have been greening the holiday lights in communities across the service area for more than 10 years. It’s a great way to join in the holiday festivities while raising awareness for the value of renewable energy.”

Communities greening their holiday light displays this year include:

  • Salt Lake City, Utah – Hogle Zoo
  • Salt Lake City, Utah – City Creek Center
  • Salt Lake City, Utah – Downtown
  • Moab, Utah
  • Park City, Utah

Rocky Mountain Power customers can also celebrate the season by greening their own homes and businesses. Through Blue Sky, customers can choose to support renewable energy equal to all or part of their energy use and start reducing their carbon footprint today.

“Blue Sky customers support wind, solar and other renewable sources,” said Hoopiiaina. “The program helps customers reduce their carbon footprint and helps drive demand for more renewable energy in our region.”

Since 2006, Rocky Mountain Power’s Blue Sky customers have voluntarily supported wind and solar energy generation in the region. Blue Sky has also provided more than $10 million in funding to community-based renewable energy projects.
