Rocky Mountain Power is seeking bids for solar, wind, and geothermal energy projects in Utah, the company said Tuesday, citing broad demand from customers for renewable power.
Rocky Mountain Power said it was working with several communities on renewable power goals, including Salt Lake City and Park City. The proposal would interconnect with the PacifiCorp system.
“Rocky Mountain Power has a successful history of partnering with our customers and communities,” said Cindy Crane, CEO of Rocky Mountain Power. “We are continuing that tradition by bringing new renewable energy to our customers that have aggressive renewable and sustainability goals, while still providing affordable, reliable electricity to all of our customers.”
The company said it is seeking proposals for 308,000 megawatt hours of power generation, or about 40 MW of geothermal capacity or 100 to 126 MW of wind or solar capacity. That would power about 34,000 typical homes in Utah.
