A Positive Presence at the ’21 Clayton County Fair

The Clayton County Energy District is happy to have provided a positive presence at the 2021 Clayton County Fair.

Our booth included a handmade LED bulb demo hand-crank, cordless electric power examples (leaf blower and weed whip), our CCED membership brochures and information about the Clean Energy Districts of Iowa, and contact handouts from our Business Members. We also shared all of our Supporting Members.


Parker Klingman, a Clayton County native and machinist engineered and created our LED vs. Incandescent bulb demo. This displayed the obvious difference in the amount of energy needed to power a LED bulb vs. an incandescent light. As an energy district, we believe in “Green Meets Green.” When bulbs are swapped for LED in the county, we are saving tons and tons of carbon emissions, along with a ton of money.

So far, we have put our boots on the ground to swap out 8,000 bulbs in the county. This amounts to $668,000 in community savings and 4,200 metric tons of carbon savings over the next 13 years!



We were sure to display our current Business Members as these are contacts for any residents interested in solar. We want to send out a big thank you to our two newest Business Members, Solar Integrators and Perry Novak Electric.

Thank you to everyone who stopped out to meet some of our CCED Board and Staff Members!

Stay tuned for upcoming events with us, very soon.
