Mission Statement

We are committed to creating a future that ensures healthy, thriving communities for all, empowered and sustained by clean energy.

Description

Since 2001, Utah Clean Energy has led the transition to clean energy in Utah and the West with vision and expertise. Through advocacy, policy, and public outreach we tackle today’s serious energy challenges with a toolbox of innovative solutions and workable strategies.
In January 2001, a volunteer-based public interest group was formed (Utahns for an Energy Efficient Economy) to promote energy efficiency and clean energy technologies to the public and policy makers. During that year, Utahns for an Energy Efficiency Economy increased its involvement in utility regulatory proceedings that affected the deployment of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency.
In 2002, Utahns for an Energy Efficient Economy incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and changed its name to Utah Clean Energy. We broadened our outreach to the clean energy business community, local governments, congregations, and universities/colleges. Through advocacy, education, and diverse partnerships, Utah Clean Energy continues to advance renewable energy and energy efficiency in Utah and the Western Region. Today, Utah Clean Energy has become Utah’s independent resource for clean energy policy, regulatory, and consumer information.

Program Details

At Utah Clean Energy, our work focuses on four main areas:
Reducing Pollution by Preventing Energy Waste
The fastest and most affordable way to transition to clean energy is to reduce the amount of energy that is wasted. By increasing the energy efficiency of our homes, buildings, and vehicles, it’s easy to get more for less: more productivity, less wastefulness; more comfort, less compromise; more profit, less pollution. Oh, and lots of local jobs! Which is why Utah Clean Energy focuses on making it easier for Utah families to save money, and to start reaping the benefits of energy efficiency today.

Making Renewable Energy Simple & Affordable

Tapping into Utah's abundant, pollution-free, renewable energy resources means not having to choose between a healthy climate and a healthy economy. What's not to love? Yet, certain barriers are standing in the way of creating more clean energy. Utah Clean Energy is in the business of busting barriers. We remove the obstacles to make both rooftop solar, and large-scale renewable energy the simple, affordable, and most accessible choice for Utah families and businesses.

Improving Air Quality with EV’s:

Electric vehicles, or EVs, which require no gasoline and emit no pollution, present a critical opportunity to improve air quality along the Wasatch Front, while at the same time reducing households’ fuel costs. With the support from organizations such as Utah Clean Energy and our friends at Leaders for Clean Air and Utah Clean Cities the EV market has grown substantially here in Utah, but the efforts need to continue.

Planning for a Clean Energy Future and Livable Planet:

Utah Clean Energy is here to ensure that the important choices of “how much” and “what kind” of energy resources we invest in today reflect the long-term best interests of Utah, and provide a smarter approach to energy planning, to benefit our economy, our families, and our quality of life. In fact, over the next 20 years, over $200 billion will be invested in energy resources in the West. A transition to clean energy can eliminate our dependency on fossil fuels and help mitigate the enormous, negative consequences we face to our health and the health of our planet, if we continue to overload our atmosphere with CO2 emissions. We engage in policy and regulatory action (the utility planning processes), to anticipate future energy needs, and to build a strong, clean, renewable-energy market. Will Utah invest in non-polluting, clean energies, or will we sink money back into resources that pollute our air and water, and deplete our natural resources? Help us make the change!
