Save the Iowa Power Fund

Posted by

Despite making Iowa a national leader in clean energy production, Iowa House Republicans are already drawing their knives and preparing to kill the program they feel has “no value to Iowans” and Governor-elect Branstad called a “colossal failure.”

Since Governor Culver signed the Power Fund into law in 2007, Iowa’s clean energy economy has taken off. Since 2006 the amount of energy Iowa receives from renewable sources has jumped from 5 percent to 20 percent, while companies from across the world have leveraged Power Fund grants to create Iowa jobs.

In addition to receiving national attention, the Power Fund also has bipartisan support within Iowa, including Republican Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey who said,

“It is vital that we maintain our leadership status on renewable fuels, and the Power Fund plays an important role in the continued development of the industry here in Iowa.”

Call your State Representative and Senator. (Find them here.) Tell them Iowans want clean renewable energy as one of the engines of our new economy.
