SALT LAKE CITY — Nick Dixon of Layton is the grand-prize winner of Rocky Mountain Power’s 2017 Act wattsmart Video Contest.

The video also includes tips on how Utah residents can live wattsmart. For his efforts, Dixon will receive $10,000 in energy-efficient home upgrades.
Runner-up Matthew Johnson, of Orem, will receive $3,000 in energy-efficient home upgrades with his video “Wattsmart Machine.” Casey Wayman of West Haven will take home $2,000 in energy-efficient home upgrades as the People’s Choice Award winner for his video, “The Wattagette.”
