Creating jobs & clean energy with solar

I joined 13 of my colleagues in filing a bill to increase our investment in one of Iowa’s most successful incentives: solar energy tax credit. Between 2012 and 2016, the credit has helped install more than 1,200 new solar energy systems on farms, homes and businesses. An investment of about $14 million in state funds has generated more than $100 million in private investment, while creating more than 1,000 jobs throughout Iowa. This bill will create hundreds of new jobs and millions in additional investment.
