Action Alert: Save Net Metering in Iowa

The Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) recently accepted a rule change from Alliant Energy, one of the state’s two electric utility providers. The rule, which will go into effect on April 1st, will negatively impact solar customers and reduce solar’s financial viability statewide.

By accepting Alliant’s proposal, the IUB is allowing the utility to restrict Iowans’ energy independence and make it more difficult for Iowans to save money on their electric bills by investing in solar energy. We need you to make your voice heard and send a clear message to the IUB that solar in Iowa is here to stay. Sign the petition at www.saveiowasolar.org.

The state of Iowa is expected to install 329 megawatts (MW) of solar over the next 5 years, representing a 700% increase over what is currently installed. But to realize this incredible potential, we need to ensure that smart, stable policies like net metering are preserved.

  1. Good news! The subcommittee for HF2100, a bill that would have put solar energy out of reach for countless Iowans and hurt the state’s solar economy and job market, met on Thursday, February 11, 2016, and did NOT pass the bill out of subcommittee. Thanks to all who attended the meeting, and to each advocate who took action to help protect solar in Iowa. Your voices were heard!
