According to Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier news, In a push for more clean energy in Black Hawk County, experts from the University of Northern Iowa are offering a smooth transition from using coal-fired power to naturally renewable solar energy. “We feel like this is a huge opportunity for a large number of people,” said Eric Giddens, energy program manager of UNI’s Center for Energy & Environmental Education. “Over the life of a solar system, (customers) will spend less on their utility bills, and upfront costs of installing the system will be more than paid back over the life of the system.” The “Go Solar” group-buy program gives businesses, farms and residents in Black Hawk County the opportunity to take advantage of reduced energy costs and join the increasing number of Iowans who are going solar and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The “Go Solar” program will begin with a series of educational seminars from February through March about the benefits of solar energy. Those interested will get a free energy analysis from Eagle Point Solar, an installation business in Dubuque that has partnered with UNI for the program. Eagle Point Solar is a member of the Cedar Valley Alliance & Chamber. ——————–***——————–
