Empower SLC is managed by Utah Clean Energy through funding and partnership with the Salt Lake City Sustainability Department. This community engagement effort aims to empower Salt Lake City residents with the tools to save energy and money while reducing pollution on a community-wide scale. Through Empower SLC, we are working with homeowners, renters, small businesses, schools, and community programs, to bring energy efficiency to the masses!
Meet the Energy Ambassadors
A benefit of working within a targeted area is that residents and organizations already in these communities can take the lead! The Empower SLC “Energy Ambassadors” head up our community efforts to bring energy saving education and resources to residents of 84116 and 84104 communities.
- International Rescue Committee (IRC): Helping refugees survive, recover, and gain control of their future, the IRC will complete LED direct-installations during home visits with resettled families.
- Salt Lake County Aging & Adult Services: Meals on Wheels volunteers routed in Salt Lake City’s West Side will give homebound seniors receiving meals an option for free LED installations in their home.
- Salt Lake City’s Division of Youth and Family: YouthCity Gov’t puts on two events every year centered on air quality, health, and the environment. At these events, attendees will be able to receive water-saving showerheads that in turn will also reduce energy demand and water-heating costs.
