Laramie Community Recreation and Ice & Event Center Solar Energy Projects
The City of Laramie was a proud recipient of a funding award from Rocky Mountain Power’s Blue Sky program participants to support the installation of solar arrays to serve the Laramie Community Recreation and the Ice & Event Centers. Rocky Mountain Power’s Blue Sky program funds renewable energy projects in Utah, Wyoming and Idaho. The solar installations at the Laramie Community Recreation and the Ice & Event Centers represent the City’s first major step toward carbon neutrality. These facilities were selected for the inaugural solar investment for their impact toward the municipal goal of net neutrality and for their ability to serve as an educational site for the thousands of annual guests visiting both facilities each year.
In May of 2021 the City of Laramie was proud to announce that the 25kW solar projects at the Laramie Community Recreation Center and Laramie Ice & Event Center had been completed with the installation of three public kiosks. These public kiosks were installed in the lobbies of the Recreation Center and the Ice & Event Center, as well as in the Laramie High School cafeteria. The kiosk monitors provide daily and weekly real-time solar energy production, lifetime totals and comparisons to saved carbon emissions and trees planted.
Thank you to Rocky Mountain Power's Blue Sky customers for making these projects possible.
