Clean Power

Power generation is a big part of Provo’s self-sustaining industry— which will soon be a clean and reliable option considering what we used to have with the old power plant. A new Natural Gas power plant, expected to be operational by the end of 2017, will emit the equivalent annual emissions of only eight cars, while producing more electricity than the old power plant used to.
