Potential Models for Nebraska Communities: Solar Power Hour locations announced for Johnson County Solarize program

IOWA CITY — Nearly two dozen public meetings have been scheduled to help educate area residents on Johnson County’s Solarize program — which incentivizes private solar development through volume purchasing prices. Similar to last year’s Solarize program in Linn County, the first of its kind in Iowa, the program is administered by the Midwest Renewable Energy Association. The Cedar Rapids and Linn County Solarize program concluded with about 607 kilowatts of solar energy added to 105 properties. Read more here.
