Energy Usage

Lehi has a diversified energy portfolio, including traditional and clean energy sources (i.e. wind). We recently built a generation facility that uses clean and efficient natural gas generators. The facility will be used during peak energy usage times. 

The Committee will focus on energy savings from April through June 2020.

Understanding environmental health factors is crucial as they directly impact human well-being. For instance, radon, a radioactive gas commonly found in homes, poses a significant risk of lung cancer when inhaled. Awareness of potential hazardous chemical exposure is crucial in workplaces and your daily life, requiring informed decisions and proactive measures. This involves staying informed, using radon testing kits, and creating prevention measures in your home and work. Prevention measures include understanding product labels, using protective equipment, and and advocating for safer alternatives at work. Educating your household about environmental health and promoting sustainability in your communities and workplaces helps prevent environmental health hazards.
