DUBUQUE COUNTY, Iowa (KWWL) – The University of Northern Iowa Center for Energy and Environmental Education (CEEE) who is partnered with the Iowa Solar Energy Trade Association (ISETA), Eagle Point Solar and Van Meter are launching the Dubuque County (including East Dubuque, Manchester and Edgewood) Go Solar Group Buy Program.
According to CEEE, the program is designed to educate businesses and citizens about the benefits of solar energy and provide property owners an opportunity to invest in solar power.
Eric Giddens, CEEE Energy Program Manager stated:
“The use of solar technology from residential, commercial, agricultural and municipal has dramatically increased over the past several years. It’s amazing to learn how much money these systems can save a family or business owner on their energy costs, not to mention the positive environmental impacts in helping to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. Additionally, over 70% of the total cost of these systems may be offset via tax credits, equipment depreciation, and energy grants. The time to “Go Solar” has come, and we’re eager to help everyone make the transition.”
Eric Giddens (D) is also a member of the Iowa State Senate representing District 30.
