Salt Lake City-based Deseret Power Electric Cooperative, a vertically integrated, non‐profit corporation owned by six rural utility members, has awarded Salt River Materials Group (SRMG) the fly ash marketing agreement for its Bonanza Power Plant, south of Vernal, Utah. Effective this month, the long-term contract provides SRMG with exclusive rights to the station’s ASTM C‐618 Class F product.

Bonanza Power runs on coal from a Deseret Power-owned mine, ensuring material consistency, and represents SRMG’s sixth fly ash marketing agreement, alongside contracts covering Arizona and New Mexico power generating stations. It will add to the 15 million tons of fly ash the producer has recycled over nearly 45 years.
