Logan, Utah – Calling it a marathon, not a sprint. Vice Chairman Matt Perry, of Logan’s Renewable Energy and Conservation Advisory Board, presented what he called a “roadmap” toward energy conservation for Logan City to the Municipal Council Advisory Board. The “roadmap” recommends that 50 percent of the energy consumed by the city come from renewable energy sources by 2030.
Indicating that, more and more, renewable energy is proving to be the cheapest form of electricity that is available in the United States, he said the easiest way for the city to reduce their current consumption is for city owned buildings to have energy efficiency audits, and any new buildings that might be built meet specific energy consumption requirements.
Council Chair, Holly Daines, acknowledged there is still a lot of unanswered questions, but she thinks a move toward renewable energy is the direction they should be headed.
Logan’s Conservation coordinator, Emily Malik, called the roadmap a living document that can constantly be updated with the ever-changing current information concerning renewable energy.
