Posted on 03/04/2019

During a meeting on Jan. 8, the Cottonwood Heights City Council unanimously passed a resolution adopting a sustainable energy policy to seek mutually beneficial and financially feasible methods to increase energy efficiency and utilization by and within the city.

The resolution calls for exploratory and implementation milestones for renewable energy conversion, in collaboration with Rocky Mountain Power.

The primary goal of the policy is for all city operations to be powered by 100 percent renewable electricity supply by the year 2022. The resolution also sets the same goal for all residents and businesses by the year 2032 without compromising affordability, reliability and environmental stewardship.

Cottonwood Heights is one of only four other Utah governments to adopt such a resolution, joining Salt Lake City, Park City, Moab and Summit County.
