YCC Family Crisis Center Celebrates Completion of Blue Sky Solar Project

January 30, 2019


OGDEN, Utah — Today the YCC Family Crisis Center celebrated the completion of a renewable energy project, which will allow the center to better serve those in the community who find themselves in crisis. The sun now powers approximately 25 percent of the Ogden shelter’s energy usage.

Made possible by a $158,599 grant from Rocky Mountain Power Blue Sky customers, the project enables the center to save more than $6,000 dollars each year in energy costs. YCC leaders say those funds can now be used to provide more services for those they serve.

The agency, which provides aid to victims of domestic violence, homelessness, rape and sexual assault, serves more than 41,000 individuals annually.

“Blue Sky customers have allowed us to save money and redirect those funds into better providing shelter, crisis intervention and care services,” said Julee Smith, YCC executive director. “We are also firm believers in sustainable practices and hope this project will encourage other organization to explore renewable energy.”

“Organizations like the YCC Family Crisis Center play a crucial role in our communities and we are grateful to our Blue Sky customers for making projects like these possible,” said Steve Rush, Rocky Mountain Power regional business manager.

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