The Smart Energy Efficiency Program will also incorporate consumer education and incentives to reduce energy consumption. The specific programs will be announced in the future.

UAMPS has appointed Cathryn Collis as new smart energy manager to lead the Smart Energy Efficiency Program. Collis has more than 35 years of experience in public policy, natural resource planning, and project management. Collis has also worked for SWCA Environmental Consultants, where she was managing principal for the Utah, Idaho and Nevada offices.

“We are glad to be able to offer these new services and benefits,” said UAMPS General Manager Doug Hunter. “Our members are continually looking at ways to ensure their customers have reliable, affordable energy available to power their homes and businesses. Implementing efficiency measures is definitely the lowest cost power supply option, and a critical part of a healthy energy portfolio.”
