Take control of your energy costs by adding energy-saving sensors to your lighting systems.

Energy-saving sensors make saving energy easy and consistent day after day, so you don’t have to think about it.

For example, when used in refrigerated cases, controls illuminate the products in the case as the customer approaches, then turn off or dim when no one is near.

You can apply this technology outdoors too.

LED fixtures with occupancy controls allow lights to dim when activity is low.

When sensors detect motion, the exterior lighting brightens instantly.

This trigger alerts occupants or cameras of nearby activity.

Rocky Mountain Power’s wattsmart Business program provides incentives for lighting controls.

Since pre-approval is required for lighting projects, contact Rocky Mountain Power at wattsmart.com, before you start your project.

While the holidays are considered the most wonderful time of the year, here in Utah the winter season also means the worst time of the year for air pollution.

Already this year we’ve seen several orange air days and even some red air days. This is unacceptable.

While we can’t do much about our geography, we can do something about the amount of emissions we’re putting into the air during our inversions.

It’s simple. Reducing the number of cars on the road improves our air quality. For example, if all drivers living along the Wasatch Front were to park their cars just one day per week, vehicle emissions would be reduced by 6,500 tons per year!

Do your part to Clear the Air, and take part in the Clear the Air Challenge. The Challenge takes place in February.

Get your employees and co-workers involved and see how easy it is to reduce emissions and help Utah’s air.

The Clear the Air Challenge starts February 1st. To register visit cleartheairchallenge.org
