Dec 01, 2016

Park City has been putting in a lot of work to become more energy efficient and release fewer greenhouse gas emissions.  Park City is among the top cities of the Georgetown University Energy Prize rankings, and is among the 50 national finalists.  The winner will be announced in January, and will win $5 Million in prize money.

Park City now gets 15 percent of power from renewable sources but expects that to ramp up to 67 percent by the end of next year, due to increase in utility-scale solar provided by Rocky Mountain Power.  The city of Park City has a goal of having a net-zero energy use for municipal operations by 2022.  Park City will son be getting six electric buses, the first of what will be about 50 electric busses in the next decade.

Park City and Summit County and also encouraging residents to switch to all LED bulbs.  At least over 10,000 light bulbs have been changed out so far.  In addition 95 families installed solar panels through the Mountain Town Community Solar Program.  All in all the Park City community has saved $5 million on their utility costs in the first 18 months of this effort!  Way to go Park City!

Deer Valley Specialist Real Estate Tip Of The Week: Home Energy Audit Can Save You Money

By Diana
Nov 21, 2016

When the snow piles high and temperatures drop, the cost of heating your home increases. You can reduce your bills significantly by getting an Energy Audit for your home.

A professional energy audit will give you a comprehensive report on all the ways your house is losing energy. The auditor will check all the building components and systems that affect energy use, such as ducts, windows and doors, insulation levels, and heating equipment.

They will also do a “Calibrated Blower Door Test” that will help determine the overall snugness of your home. To pinpoint specific leaks, a “Thermographic Inspection” records temperature variations on the house’s skin using an infrared camera. Dark areas on the video indicate spots where cold air is coming inside.

Making your home more energy efficient is not just a nice thing to do for the environment, it will also rescue your wallet. The difference between a snug, energy efficient home and a leaky one could mean thousands of dollars in savings.
