Solutions for reducing Laramie’s carbon emissions have been produced through a joint community-university partnership. ARE has helped to advance and support a 3 year partnership between the City of Laramie and the University of Wyoming’s Spring Campus Sustainability course students led by Professor Rachael Budowle.
Wyoming continues to consider changes to our net metering policy which is what governs the ability for rooftop solar owners to hook their system up to the grid and receive a fair payback for excess energy produced. ARE will continue to track attempts at legislation to hurt current or future solar owners, and ARE supports policy that encourages the growth of the Wyoming solar industry. Learn more here.
ARE continues to advocate for updating and modernizing Wyoming’s solar laws to allow for programs like Community Solar which allow community members to purchase a share of a installation to apply to their electricity bill.
As ratepayers of Rocky Mountain Power, a subsidiary of Pacificorp, we support our utility’s decision to transition some of it’s electricity producing fleet to renewable energy to provide the lowest cost energy to Wyoming people.
