Renewable Energy Project Tour

Natural History Museum Solar

On September 25, 2015, Rocky Mountain Power hosted its 6th annual Blue Sky renewable energy project tour. Forty participants joined the tour, starting at Tracy Aviary in Salt Lake City, to get a first-hand experience with solar and wind power technology.

Tracy Aviary is home to two solar installations supported by Blue Sky customers – a 5-kilowatt rooftop solar array installed in 2007 and unique “solar trees” installed in early 2015, which also serve to shade the Chilean flamingo exhibit. The tour later visited the Spanish Fork Wind Farm, Utah’s first commercial-scale wind project, where participants walked among the facility’s nine 2.1-megawatt wind turbines. Blue Sky purchased the renewable energy certificates from this project for a number of years when the facility first began operating.

Participants learned about trends in the renewable energy industry and were able to talk with experts in the field throughout the tour.
