The final tour will be this Friday from 10- 2:30 PM in Taylor, Adams and Union Counties. Lt. Governor, Adam Gregg, will tour Contrail Wind Farm, POET Bioprocessing and Valleyview Campground Solar. 

“Clean Energy Week provides an opportunity for us to reflect and celebrate the economic impact of renewable energy in Iowa,” said Ray Gaesser, Chair of the Iowa Conservative Energy Forum. “The benefits of renewable energy can be felt in every corner of the state, especially in rural Iowa where clean energy is creating jobs and powering a rural revitalization.”
