Our Members…

Keep and Reinvest 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.

Support the Clean Energy Transition

Energy Districts support the transition to clean energy by combining energy efficiency (energy not used is the cleanest, cheapest energy!) and locally-owned renewable energy. Your Energy District puts boots on the ground to provide technical assistance, financial analysis, and help with implementation.

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’s energy and climate policy. We aim to keep our members and our communities informed and engaged. Learn more about our services or explore energy education events.
