Stoel Rives attorney Gregory Monson was quoted in The Salt Lake Tribune in an article titled “Utah upholds long-term renewable-power contracts.” The article discusses a recent decision by the Utah Public Service Commission to shorten the term of contracts that utilities have with producers of renewable energy. Pacificorp, the parent company of Utah's largest utility, Rocky Mountain Power, had sought to have the term length reduced from 20 to three years, but the commission decided on a term of 15 years.

Monson saids that the commission’s decision balances the public interest in renewables with the need to protect ratepayers. "They said: There is problem and we need to deal with it, but we won't go as far as you asked," he said. "They tried to walk a fine line and did a good job."
