On Thursday, December 16, AES Clean Energy and UMPA will host a celebration of the energization of the Clover Creek 80 MW solar facility. A panel discussion with elected officials and renewable development professionals will be the feature presentation at the event. The participants will discuss how Utah benefits from renewable development, what obstacles to address, and how communities can benefit from jobs, tax revenue, and engagement. 

During the event, AES will pledge to donate $10,000 to Juab County School District — The HIVE, an 80,500 square foot educational complex that will house three educational classrooms, a turf field and walking track, four basketball / volleyball courts, a wrestling room, a weight room and office space.
