Episode #72: Ryan Evans, Utah Solar Energy Association

Matt chats with Ryan about his work advocating for clean air and for the Utah solar industry over the past few years. First, Ryan talked about his efforts with the Salt Lake Chamber pushing good clean air programs. Ryan then discusses how he came to be the solar association’s new President, and the group’s growing program and influence. They then move to talk about some current issues, including the recent battle over a proposal to get rid of a state tax credit which supports rooftop solar. Lastly, they talk about 2017’s biggest solar fight, which is the decision about whether to approve Rocky Mountain Power’s three proposed fees which would make rooftop solar unaffordable to most Utah families.
