SALT LAKE CITY — Rocky Mountain Power customers in Utah can look forward to a slight decrease in their power bills and access to cleaner energy starting January 1, 2021.

Customers can expect see their electric bills go down about 0.7% because of decisions from the Utah Public Service Commission following regulatory reviews that happened in 2020 along with refunds from with federal tax law changes.

Rocky Mountain Power said in a press release that in addition to the lower bills, Utahns will benefit from "cleaner energy and a more resilient energy grid."

“In 2017, Rocky Mountain Power made a commitment to customers to keep rates flat for at least three years. This latest decision extends that commitment to keep bills low while still expanding access to clean, low-cost and sustainable energy for the customers and communities we serve,” said Gary Hoogeveen, president and CEO of Rocky Mountain Power.

Along with investments in cleaner energy sources, the company is also investing in a mechanism that will allow them to reduce wildfire risk.
