Luther College Solar Array Ribbon Cutting

Community leaders and decision makers are invited to attend
Solar Energy For Non-taxable Entities…Let’s Get Started
Workshop & Vendor Fair

Friday May 4th |  Keystone AEA, 1400 N. 2nd St, Elkader

Paying less for energy = more for your mission = better for the community = better for the world


The workshop will explore the financial and environmental benefits of solar power for non-taxable entities(NTEs) and various strategies for how and why NTEs can afford and should consider, a solar energy system, including the use of public infrastructure funds, endowments and the use of power purchase agreements (PPAs).
A PPA allows a non-taxable entity to “go solar” without investing funds, and to indirectly benefit from the tax credits. Outright ownership also carries benefits, and with low prices it is increasingly considered by NTEs.
The workshop will include Iowa solar success case studies and presentations covering going solar technical and financial considerations.

This FREE workshop will host 100 seats and includes lunch.
We have invited most NTEs in Northeast Iowa
