On the final day of the 2015 session, the Iowa Legislature passed HF645, which would expand access to solar energy for businesses, farmers, homeowners and utilities. Now, the bill is on the Governor’s desk, awaiting his signature. We need your help to ensure this important bill becomes law.
Iowa’s solar energy tax incentive program has been so effective that even after successfully tripling available tax incentives last year, demand still exceeds the annual cap. HF645 would meet some of that demand by increasing available solar energy tax incentive funds from $4.5M to $5M. It would also expand and make improvements to the 476C production tax incentive, which can be used to support community solar energy projects.
Solar energy in Iowa is growing, but significant potential remains. Let’s keep the momentum going. Tell Governor Branstad that Iowans support increasing solar energy.
With the stroke of the Governor’s pen, Iowa can improve access to clean energy that preserves our environment, protects our communities and strengthens our economy. As Governor Branstad considers this modest but important bill, it is critical that he hears from Iowans that support clean energy. Take action today and ask Governor Branstad to sign HF645.
