Renewable energy is cheaper and more efficient than ever before. Because of that, Iowans should support its growth across the state. But we need to make sure it’s done fairly and that its policy is responsive to the growing demands of the energy grid. That’s why we need to support HF 669/SF 583.
This legislation takes away the cost shift brought on by solar panels. While they are a clean form of energy, they can’t operate on their own. When the sun isn’t strong enough to fully power the solar panel, the device needs to tap into the normal power grid for energy. This might seem like a rare occasion, but it happens all the time.
