Community members are welcome to attend all or part of the workshop as schedules permit.
In 2017, the Moab City Council set several goals for energy independence, including a goal of transitioning to 100-percent community-wide renewable electricity by 2030. Becoming the first Rocky Mountain Power Wattsmart community in the nation is a first step in achieving those long-term goals.
“The program will help businesses and residents save money,” said Moab City Sustainability Director Rosemarie Russo. “Together we can make a big difference in creating a healthier community, both now and into the future.”
Through this collaboration with Rocky Mountain Power, the City of Moab aims to develop and document the Moab community’s energy vision, identify goals and strategies to help achieve that vision, and engage and motivate the community to take action to reach those goals.
Refreshments will be provided during the workshop and all participants can register to receive a free Wattsmart home energy kit containing four LED bulbs, a water-efficient shower head and a sink aerator — which can help residential users save up to $200 in utility costs.
The public is also invited to attend two subsequent Wattsmart community forums scheduled for Dec. 19 and Jan. 30. Please RSVP for the workshops to Rosemarie Russo by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone, 435 355-0617.
