If the equipment cooling your business is making too much noise, is more than 10 years old, or in need of frequent repairs, it may be time to upgrade.

Continually repairing equipment is not only a hassle, but maintenance costs can add up quickly. And, since heating and cooling can account for up to 45 percent of energy charges, outdated and inefficient systems can become expensive to operate.

Technical expertise and cash incentives for high-efficiency cooling upgrades are available from Rocky Mountain Power’s wattsmart Business program. Incentives also are available for energy-efficient lighting, insulation, food service equipment, compressed air systems and more.

It’s been widely recognized that downtown Salt Lake is one of the best places in the nation to live, work and play. Recently, Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski and representatives from Salt Lake County gathered to officially launch the Cultural Core initiative, THE BLOCKS, Utah’s premiere art, cultural and entertainment districts.

Located within a 40-block neighborhood, THE BLOCKS celebrate vibrant urban experiences for a growing and increasingly diverse group of residents and visitors and showcases the amazing talent and dynamic energy of our creative community in downtown Salt Lake’s Cultural Core.

People can fully embrace the wide diversity of cultural and artistic offerings and create new memories and traditions through the power of art.

From world-class performing arts to our vibrant galleries and rousing concert series to culturally-rich arts and ethnic festivals, museums, markets and amazing facilities, Salt Lake is the hub of Utah’s burgeoning cultural renaissance.
