By making renewable energy the primary source of energy in Iowa, Iowans can lead the global effort to reduce the severity and frequency of weather-related disasters.
The economics alone are getting stronger every day for abandoning carbon-based energy sources for carbon-free sources. Furthermore, the human species will seek ways to get the earth’s carbon cycle back in check. We can save human lives, life forms that can save human lives and billions if not trillions in property losses.
The strongest business cases for solar and other RE solutions are commercial applications. Businesses still qualify for Federal and State incentives (while they last) and the economies of scale bring down the costs more than residential applications. However, a huge benefit that gets overlooked is the public relations (PR) benefit. As more consumers reach the aha moment, they will seek out companies that are part of the solution.
Any business that has locations in Iowa where at least 25% of the energy they use comes from clean renewable energy sources (solar, wind, geothermal, biomass) is eligible to receive FREE promotions from I-Renew.

Our mission is to make renewable energy the primary source of energy in Iowa. Therefore, the more incentives we can effectively provide for renewable energy adopters, the sooner we achieve our mission.
