OGDEN — Ogden City is moving forward with its involvement in Utah’s Community Renewable Energy program.


The Ogden City Council voted 5-2 Tuesday night to approve a resolution that ensures the city’s participation in the development of the rate structure associated with the program while also appropriating $35,738 in city funds toward the effort.


First introduced with House Bill 411, the renewable energy effort is the ambitious clean-energy program adopted by the Utah Legislature during 2019’s general session. The bill calls for Utah cities that choose to participate to move to a net 100% electric energy use from renewable resources by 2030. In December 2019, the council voted 5-2 to adopt a resolution that established a citywide goal to transition to net 100% renewable energy by the target date. The vote also signaled the city’s intent to consider the program as the channel to reach that goal.
