Sunday, 3/24 Faithfully Protecting Solar

Iowa Interfaith Power & Light and Dubuque Interfaith Green Coalition are hosting the Faithfully Protecting Solar workshop on March 24th

Iowans across the state are gathering to tell their elected leaders and the media they won’t let utilities monopolize the sun. Iowa is a clean energy leader and must increase our investments in solar energy and maintain policies like net-metering that increase solar investments.

“Iowa is a leader in wind energy and we can be a leader in solar,” says Matt Russell, executive director of Iowa Interfaith Power & Light. “Increasingly, Iowans understand the right thing to do morally is also the smart thing to do economically. The fastest growing job in the United States is solar installer. The second fastest is wind turbine service technician. We’re gathering as people of faith to learn more about solar energy and to raise our voices to support solar energy production. Iowa must promote not limit solar energy.”

In the workshop, participants will draw on their faith, learn about public policies like net-metering that support solar energy, and finish the workshop with letters to the editor and letters to their state senators and representatives.

Dubuque Interfaith Green Coalition is co-hosting the workshop.

The Dubuque County Energy District is helping with programming.
