Moving southward along Interstate-15, just before reaching St. George, Utah, lies a small community that has kept a rural and country-like charm since its founding in the early history of the state. Hurricane, Utah (pronounced “Her-ah-kun” due to the region’s first settlers from Liverpool, England), began as a project to develop cotton and textiles. Proof of this cotton background is in the name of the entire southern area of Utah: Dixie. Once this attempt failed due to poor soil for the crop, Hurricane became the peach and pistachio capital of Utah. These early orchards would feed thousands of pioneer settlers and travelers moving onward to California.
Perhaps the most unique locales in southern Utah, the Hurricane Trail and Hurricane Canal connected the valley to the north for more than eighty years. Built with picks and shovels over eleven years, the portion of the trail known to hikers and vacationers today is only a small part of the entire pioneer highway. Every single day, canal riders made sure the travelers and shipments made it through safely, ensuring the continued growth of Hurricane and St. George.
The year-long warm temperatures of southern Utah are one of the main reasons power bills stay high for both residential and commercial buildings. And one of the biggest culprits of a high power bill is the loss of air conditioning through gaps in roof connections and vents.
