Renewable energy board meeting Wednesday, considering solar farm

The board that advises Logan’s Municipal Council on energy conservation matters meets Wednesday at the city’s Environmental Department classroom. The Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Advisory Board gathers in its August meeting at 7:30 a.m. Emily Morgan Malik is Logan’s Conservation Coordinator. “It’s a council-appointed board,” she said. “They review just about everything we do and they will also pass recommendations on to the council if something is a council decision. This board is a group of people with a lot of experience and knowledge so they always have a lot to add to the decision-making process.” Malik said she works to educate the public about the different programs the city makes available. “I also help create the energy conservation programs we have and I process the applications we receive. “We get a lot of applicants for the Energy Star appliance program and we also have quite a few commercial businesses that are doing lighting retrofits that apply for our commercial lighting program.” One item on Wednesday’s agenda relates to the “…status of solar farm and industry.” “The idea of a solar farm has been entertained in the past and this is meant as an update on some research regarding what it would take,” said Malik. The Wednesday morning meeting is open to the public at 450 North 1000 West in Logan.
