Solar Power Finds Success

A new report by an environmental group says Iowa ranks 16th in the nation for the amount of solar power it could reasonably produce. The Iowa Environmental Council report was funded largely by the Iowa Energy Center at Iowa State University It cites examples of successful solar installations including a 280 kilowatt array at Luther College in Decorah, the largest. Another is the 150 kilowatt array on a distribution center near Peosta, which cuts carbon emissions and energy costs for Colony Brands Inc.
