Rocky Mountain Power has been powering the West for 100 years. Our company dates back to 1881, when Salt Lake City became the fifth city in the world to have central station electricity. Utah Power & Light (UP&L) was formed in 1912 from several small electric companies in Utah, Idaho and western Colorado. In organizing dozens of small power companies, serving 130 small cities and towns, the new company supplied about 39,700 customers in 1912. In just 10 years, UP&L grew to serve 205 communities and 83,000 customers
