Title Economic impacts of Utah's energy industry, 2017
Date 2017
Description Utah's diverse energy industry plays a significant role in the state's economy. It encompasses traditional fossil fuels and renewable resources. The mining sector produces crude oil, natural gas, and coal. Power producers generate electricity from hydropower, geothermal, solar, wind, and biomass resources and distribute it within the state and across the western U.S. Five refineries process crude oil from Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, and Canada, and Utah has the only licensed and operating uranium mill in the country. Dozens of firms manufacture machinery for mining and the oil and gas fields as well as turbines, generators, transformers, and other electrical equipment. There are more than 60 petroleum wholesalers and 30 fuel dealers across the state. Solar installation and energy efficiency activities support thousands of jobs.
