Provo Women Making History - Provo Power's Rebecca Hunt

Highlighting the women of Provo City as part of Women's History Month.

Provo Power's Rebecca (Becky) Hunt

Rebecca (Becky) Hunt is a phenomenal Provo Power employee. She has worked for Provo Power for nearly 5 years, and Provo City for 19 years. Becky will always go the extra mile to get her work done and makes sure people know that she cares. Becky’s hobbies include gardening, baking, camping, and spending time with family and loved ones.

Provo Power provides the power infrastructure (electrical grid) to customers in the Provo City boundaries. Provo Power, also known as the Energy Department, provides reliable electricity with superior customer service at a competitive price to the residents and businesses in Provo. The Department operates and maintains over 35,000 meters, 380 miles of distribution lines, 48 miles of transmission lines and 18 substation transformers. Provo City Power is the largest municipally owned electric utility in the state.

Provo is a member of the Utah Municipal Power Agency (UMPA) which is responsible for the management and scheduling of all power resources serving Provo and other member utilities (Spanish Fork, Salem, Manti, Nephi & Levan). The generated electricity comes from many different resources, including coal, natural gas, hydro, and other renewable resources (solar/wind). Provo Power has established a goal that by the year 2030, 50% of our resource mix will be from reduced carbon and/or renewable resources. As of 2020, we are already at 39% and by 2021 with a new solar farm online we will be at 46%, and then with all planned resources (existing and new) we are projected to be at 54% reduced carbon resources by the year 2022.
