Utah Clean Energy directs the Solar Salt Lake Project, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) through their Solar America Cities (now known as Solar America Communities) program. Utah Clean Energy helped Salt Lake City become one of the first Solar America Cities 13 cities (now 25 total) in the country.
About The Solar Salt Lake Project
The Solar Salt Lake Project is led by a partnership among Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah Clean Energy, and other stakeholders (see below) whose goal is to significantly drive the use of solar energy throughout Salt Lake Valley over the next eight years and beyond. With roughly 40% of Utah's 2,500,000 residents living within the boundaries of Salt Lake City and Salt Lake County, and given the area's excellent solar resources, the Solar Salt Lake Project has the potential to significantly impact the development of solar energy in the state of Utah.
The Solar Salt Lake Project has recently completed a fully-scoped city and county-level Solar Implementation Plan to facilitate at least 10 megawatts (or an additional 10,000 solar PV systems) of new solar photovoltaic (PV) installations in the government, commercial, industrial, and residential sectors by 2015.
