Last November Rocky Mountain Power proposed a new rooftop solar metering plan that infuriated those who have made the investment to have solar panels installed. In response, the Park City Council sent a letter to the public service commission condemning the rate changes. Now Governor Gary Herbert is proposing a settlement between Rocky Mountain Power and the many stake holders. KPCW’s Melissa Allison tells us why it’s important and how you can take advantage of it.

On today's program, Park City Manager Diane Foster and Environmental Sustainability Manager Luke Cartin discuss the Agreement announced for Utah Rooftop Solar and the rest of the agenda for Thursday's city council meeting. Carol Clawson, a Heber City resident and competitor (along with her dog Kita) at this year’s Soldier Hollow Classic, has details about this weekend's Soldier Hollow Classic.

Rocky Mountain Power is hoping that its planned upgrade of a major transmission line through Summit County goes into service by late-2017, to supply increased capacity in Summit and Wasatch counties. While power needs in the Park City area are a big reason fro the upgrade, the governmental review of the line has taken place mostly on the east side of Summit County. That includes a disagreement with a group of landowners, and an appeal over a section of the line, going to the Summit County Council. Rick Brough has more.
