Rocky Mountain Power Consolidates Business Programs

Press Release

July 11, 2013

Salt Lake City — To encourage more participation in energy efficiency projects, Rocky Mountain Power has consolidated its existing programs for Utah businesses into a single efficiency program known as wattsmart Business. The company also has expanded customer options and increased its incentives for certain efficiency improvements. The changes were approved by the Utah Public Service Commission and became effective July 1.

“Utah business customers now have a more streamlined process and additional opportunities to make energy efficiency improvements that can achieve significant savings year after year,” said Carol Hunter, Rocky Mountain Power vice president. “Saving energy conserves natural resources and helps keep electricity costs low for all customers.”

Through wattsmart Business, customers can receive technical expertise and cash incentives to improve their energy efficiency.

Other key changes include:

  • Incentives for non-lighting custom measures increased from 12 cents to 15 cents per kilowatt-hour.
  • Incentives will now be capped at 70 percent of a project's cost, up from 50 percent.
  • New cash incentives for energy savings associated with energy management, or changes to operations, maintenance and behavior.
  • Expanded recommissioning option for multiple levels of energy management engagement.
  • New co-funding incentive for large businesses to hire their own energy project managers for qualifying energy efficiency projects.
  • Incentives for energy demand savings will no longer be offered.
  • Incentives associated with design assistance will no longer be offered.
