SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Advocates of renewable energy are hailing three developments in Utah this week, including the unveiling of the Salt Lake City area’s first fast-charging station for electric cars.
In addition, Scatec Solar announced plans to start construction later this year on an 80-megawatt solar plant in Iron County, which will be the state’s largest commercial solar field.
And Utah Clean Energy was selected by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to operate one of six new regional wind energy resource centers in the nation.
Utah Office of Energy Development Director Samantha Mary Julian told the Deseret News (http://bit.ly/1smo3Hx ) that the string of developments shows market forces are moving toward renewable energy in the state.
