Basin Recreation Fieldhouse Now Using Renewable Energy - 9.14.2017


PARK CITY, Utah (Sept. 14, 2017) - The Snyderville Basin Recreation District Fieldhouse is now able to offset around half the energy it uses in its new expansion with renewable power.

Due to a recently-completed solar power system installed on the building's 20,000-foot expansion, the solar energy generated now offsets the energy used by the new wing by 50 percent.  

The 266-panel solar array, funded in part by a $124,000 grant from Rocky Mountain Power's Blue Sky customers, has been a major step in Basin Recreation's goal to be sustainable in all of its operations.

Along with a multipurpose gym, the new expansion on the fieldhouse includes an outdoor lap pool and additional fitness space. The public can also monitor how much energy the solar panels are producing in real time, which is both on display at the building's entrance and on the project's solar generation page.  

The Blue Sky program provides an easy and convenient way for customers to support the development of renewable energy resources in the western United States and in their state. 

"We are grateful to our 44,862 Blue Sky customers in Utah who voluntarily support renewable energy production and help bring projects like this to life," sad Keven Hoopiiaina, Renewable Energy Manager for Rocky Mountain Power.

Blue Sky customers have provided more than $8 million in funding awards to community-based renewable energy projects.
