South Jordan Wattsmart Energy Plan

The City of South Jordan recognizes the importance of sustainable growth, especially as the City continues to be one of the fastest growing communities in the state of Utah. Early in 2021 the City partnered with Rocky Mountain Power (RMP) to implement a Wattsmart Communities program. The Wattsmart Communities program helps communities plan for the future by 1) engaging the community; 2) developing a community energy profile; 3) establishing a vision, focus areas, and goals; and 4) implementing a community energy plan. Over the course of the year, elected officials, City staff, and key community stakeholders developed an Energy Action Plan tailored specifically for the City of South Jordan.
