Strategies for Smart Energy Use at Westminster
Solar Power on Campus
Westminster was the first college campus in Utah with on-site solar. Thanks to assistance from Rocky Mountain Power's Blue Sky Block Grant program, we now have three systems generating electricity on campus rooftops: 8kW on Eccles Health, Wellness & Athletic Center, 21kW on Meldrum Science Center, and 20 kW on the Jewett Center for Performing Arts.

Blue Sky Renewable Energy Partnership
In 2006, as a result of a student proposal, Westminster College began purchasing roughly 10% of the campus’s electricity through Rocky Mountain Power’s Blue Sky renewable energy program.
