Energy District Farm Energy Planner, Joel Zook

Featured Speaker: Farm Energy Planner, Joel Zook – Joel graduated from Illinois Institute of Technology with a degree in Architecture and has spent the past six years working in energy efficiency and renewable energy.

Topic:  Farm Energy – 
Agriculture is the dominant land use and economic mainstay of our Northeast Iowa counties. Can you believe area farmers spend well over $100 million per year on energy inputs? Major cost categories include: Nitrogen inputs to cropland; electricity and gas usage in livestock facilities such as dairy, hog, and poultry, and in grain drying; and equipment fuels for field operations.
Much of that energy can be saved through efficiency practices, and much more generated right on the farm through renewables. Taking advantage of these opportunities will help the pocketbooks of farmers, contribute greatly to local economies, and reduce our regional contribution to climate change.


When: Friday, March 23rd 8:00 a.m.
Where: The Franklin Hotel, Strawberry Point
