SUPPORTING WINDS OF CHANGE

By harnessing the power of wind energy, we’re creating a better, cleaner future for Iowa.

Power Up Iowa is a statewide coalition of renewable energy supporters advocating for local, state and federal policies and initiatives that enhance Iowa’s wind energy investment. By educating, raising awareness, and participating in conversations with our state’s leaders, Power Up Iowa will help make the case for renewable energy investment to revive and drive our local economies.

Iowans can be proud to say that our state ranks second in total installed wind energy, trailing only Texas. Our commitment to wind has meant new jobs, a bigger tax base, more benefits for our farmers and boosts to our rural communities.

“Wind energy is a huge economic driver in Iowa. It creates thousands of jobs, provides a predictable financial stream for farmers and is revitalizing rural communities across the Midwest. Wind energy is a clean, efficient and cost-effective part of America’s all-of-the-above energy strategy and helps ensure the nation’s energy dominance and independence. I’m grateful every day to be able to work on behalf of Iowans and Iowa wind energy in the United States Senate.”

— U.S. Senator Charles Grassley
