Home to the Sundance Film Festival, two world-class resorts, and 8,558 residents, Park City is located in Summit County, Utah. The City first committed to purchasing green power in 2003 through a City Council Resolution and became an EPA Green Power Community in 2006. The City’s Leadership Program and Sustainability Department and local non-profits have all participated in extensive outreach efforts to promote green power use. In 2009, Park City developed a website, ParkCityGreen.org, to promote sustainability practices and green power to residents and businesses. Since that time, the website received more than 30,000 total visits. Park City also launched a “My Sustainable Year” campaign and Low Carbon Diet program to further increase traffic on ParkCityGreen.org and to promote green lifestyles. Park City regularly partners with our local utility in order to promote their renewable energy program.
