The Office of Energy Development is pleased to announce the public launch of its new website: www.energy.utah.gov. The updated OED website provides a user-friendly platform for businesses and the public seeking information specific to energy development in Utah. The site delivers important news coverage of Utah energy issues and serves as a hub of information regarding recent policy changes, new energy developments and important events such as the 2014 Utah Governor’s Annual Energy Development Summit.
Of particular importance is the “Funding & Incentives” section which the public may visit to find information on research grants, state and federal incentives and financing and loans. One popular incentive available through the website is the Renewable Energy Systems Tax Credit, which is available to homeowners and businesses seeking to advance the State’s energy conservation goals through on-site generation with solar, wind, geothermal and other technologies. The new OED website makes these applications easier to find and to submit electronically.
Having recently completed a re-branding process, OED also has a brand new visual identity that reflects the dynamism and breadth of the State’s energy industry. The icons in the shape of Utah reflect the State’s primary energy resource areas: Conventional Energy, Energy Efficiency, Renewables, Energy Infrastructure and Unconventional Energy. The logo is anchored in the top corner of the website as a reminder of the key components that comprise Utah’s energy mix and represent an important part of the economic footprint in the State.
The new website (www.energy.utah.gov) and branding further establish the Utah Office of Energy Development as the primary resource for advancing energy development in Utah.
