Be a part of a bright future! Enroll in the Cool Keeper program.
Good news for Utah Sierrans! Rocky Mountain Power has come up with an easy way for the Utah Chapter Sierra Club to help make our environment cleaner and safer—and raise funds doing it. Cool Keeper is an energy management program that helps ease the demand for electricity during the hot summer months, when air conditioner use often causes a strain on power resources. The more people participate, the more effective the program becomes. And Utah Power will make a $20 donation to the Utah Sierra Club for every person or business we sign up.
How Does Cool Keeper Work?
When you sign up for Cool Keeper, Rocky Mountain Power will come to your house and install a small radio device near your outdoor central air conditioning unit. On selected weekday summer afternoons, Rocky Mountain Power sends a signal to this device to reduce compressor activity in the A/C unit. This eases the electricity demand when it is most crucial to do so, keeping the power on for everyone by affording the local power grid some much-needed relief. You also will stay comfortable since the typical change in temperature is only about 1 to 3°F.
Why Cool Keeper?
Cool Keeper can be a big part of efficient energy use in our community. And when 1,000 Cool Keeper units are activated for an hour, it can prevent around 1,500 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) from being emitted into the atmosphere. Since Utah’s population is increasing at a fast clip and residential electricity use is at an all-time high (and rising), Cool Keeper is a great way to help the community and the local environment. There are already more than 40,000 local residential and business participants and each person who enrolls helps make a difference.
A green program that gives back to the community.
Not only will Rocky Mountain Power make donations to the Utah Chapter Sierra Club, but for every year they participate, residents and small business owners receive a credit on their own fall Rocky Mountain Power bill. (The residential credit is $20 per A/C unit; the business credit $40 per A/C unit). And taking part in the Cool Keeper program is free of charge to all participants.
Sign up today and tell a friend tomorrow. Together we can help bring relief to our local power resources and keep our air clean! Call 1 800 357-9214 to enroll now and tell them you’re part of the Sierra Club.
