The Ogden City Council is strongly encouraging participation in a survey regarding the Community Renewable Energy Project (CREP).
The survey, produced by Weber State University, is expected to reach Ogden residents via mail or email in the next week. To ensure the accuracy and reliability of the survey results, each postcard and email will be individualized to prevent duplicate completed surveys. The results will be crucial in helping Ogden City and other stakeholders gain a thorough understanding of how residents feel about Ogden City potentially continuing in the CREP.
“To get the reliable data we need, there has to be a substantial number of responses,” Council Chair Ben Nadolski said. “We’re grateful to the people at Weber State and the hard work they’ve done to develop this survey. Now we need an accurate representation of how Ogden residents feel about the potential cost of CREP so that we can make the best decision possible for the community.”
About the CREP
CREP can provide Ogden residents and businesses with more renewable energy options with the goal of making the city net-renewable by 2030. Net-renewable energy will provide the community with the same amount of reliable energy but from renewable energy sources.
Later this year, the City of Ogden will decide whether to continue in the CREP. If Ogden continues with the CREP and ultimately adopts an ordinance implementing the program city-wide, businesses and residents will be able to decide whether to participate or opt-out.
