Negative Impact on Our Community

Rocky Mountain Power’s proposed rate increases will have a direct, negative impact on our community in three specific ways:

Bad for Air Quality

This measure makes it clear that Rocky Mountain Power cares more about its own bottom line than it does for our community and the health of Utah residents. Utah has one of the worst air quality conditions in the country and solar is part of the solution.

Bad for Consumers

This is an unfair move by a monopoly to punish Utahns who are trying to save money via residential solar. The new rate changes will almost triple the amount of time it will take for consumers to break even on their solar investment.

Bad for Business

This move is particularly dangerous because Utah is such a pro-business state and the residential solar industry has been one of the largest and strongest sources of job generation over the past 5 years. Given the impact this new rate increase will have on customers, the impact on solar jobs focused only on Utah customers will be devastating.
