Rocky Mountain Power Offers One-Time Energy Efficiency Refund In Utah
Salt Lake City―During the months of February and March, Rocky Mountain Power will give back $14.5 million to active customers who received the energy efficiency surcharge during 2018. The average residential customer will get a one-time $7.30 credit on their bill. In addition, the surcharge for energy efficiency will decrease from approximately 3.66 percent to 3.54 percent.
As announced when the reduction was proposed in November, Rocky Mountain Power has identified more efficient ways to deliver these programs to customers. Energy efficiency is a foundational part of the company’s mix of resources. Widespread adoption of energy efficiency measures has allowed the company to spend less while still achieving efficiency targets, resulting in great value for customers.
Rocky Mountain Power promotes energy efficiency programs that coordinate when electricity is used, as well as reduce overall electrical use to help customers save money. These programs are funded by an efficiency charge, which appears as a line item on the customer bill.
Programs for residential customers continue to include cash incentives for energy efficient appliances, improved insulation, energy efficient windows and low-income weatherization. For business customers, the wattsmart Business program provides services and incentives to customers who complete energy efficiency projects. Specific details of these programs are available at wattsmart.com.
