Solar Energy Resources

SolarFairLogoTransparent

Solar energy fairs were held at four locations across Iowa in August and September 2016. The fairs were designed to be “one-stop-shops” for Iowans considering solar PV for electricity production at their farm, home, or business.

Below are links to vendors and sponsors, presentations from the fair,  and general information about solar energy.
