  1. Keep and Reinvest Our Energy Dollars Locally!

    Local Energy is a tremendous opportunity to create a vibrant local economy for generations. Your Energy District is steadily tackling the $50-75 million that leaves the local economy in energy costs every year, generating major economic activity right here at home.

  2. Support the Clean Energy Transition!

    WED supports the transition to clean energy by combining energy efficiency (energy not used is the cleanest, cheapest energy!) and locally owned renewable energy. It takes good technical and financial analysis and implementation help – your Energy District puts boots on the ground.

  3. Promote a Healthy Environment!

    A Healthy Environment for our kids requires REDUCING CLIMATE POLLUTION NOW, and this work starts at home. Your Energy District is a leading voice in Iowa energy and climate policy, and is keeping you informed and engaged.
