Park City, Utah

Salt Lake City, UTConsumer Energy Alliance (CEA), the leading voice for sensible energy policies for families and businesses, released the following statement after the Utah Public Service Commission recently approved new electricity rates.

“After looking at various rates from across the nation, we appreciate the Utah Public Service Commission’s thoughtful approach and deliberative process to approve fair customer rates,” said Emily Haggstrom, vice president of communications for CEA. “We are pleased the commission took such a balanced approach to expanding solar in our communities, which will help to contribute to our environment and energy diversity – while also keeping rates low for Utah consumers, families and small businesses.”

“At a time when solar energy is growing dramatically, it is critical to set a solid and predictable framework to ensure its growth and the proper maintenance of the grid for all electricity customers. CEA has long advocated for pro-solar, pro-grid and pro-consumer policies that will ensure the long-term viability and growth of solar deployment.”
