NEW YORK (October 23, 2017) — Today Rocky Mountain Power was recognized nationally for its work in growing the voluntary market for renewable energy through the Subscriber Solar program.

More than 2,500 residential, commercial and community customers have subscribed, and the program is now asking those interested to join the waitlist for when an additional plant is completed.
