Work will begin by developing a 10-year power use forecast for the current UIPA jurisdictional land that identifies how much power is needed, followed by a renewable energy generation and storage forecast to serve as a roadmap for future action that includes resource type (wind, solar, battery, renewable energy credits, etc.), resource size (in megawatts), and capital.
Additional agreements and approvals on specific projects are anticipated as this work goes forward.(Source: Utah Inland Port Authority

Kennecott's electric power needs will now be paired with 1.5 million MWh of renewable energy certificates (RECs) supplied by Rocky Mountain Power, primarily sourced from its Utah allocated portfolio including wind power from Wyoming. The RECs are Green-e Energy certified and meet the environmental and consumer-protection standards set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions.
The move to using renewable energy certificates at Kennecott is subject to regulatory approval by the Utah Public Service Commission. (Source: Rio Tinto, 2 May, 2019)Contact: Rio Tinto, www.riotinto.com
