U to co-host community conversation on electrification in Utah


As the world transitions from fossil fuels to clean energy to power vehicles and buildings, electrification is at the center of that transition. To help Utahns to better understand what this transition means for them, the University of Utah Sustainability Office, the Salt Lake Tribune and Rocky Mountain Power are hosting “Down to the Wire: Electrification and the Clean Power Transition” on Aug. 2 at the U.

The event is free to the public but does require an RSVP, which can be done here.
