Bloomberg: Iowa has the cleanest power

Bloomberg recently reported that while states such as California have ambitious renewable energy goals, Iowa is the state which generates the highest share of its electricity from wind and solar.

Iowa is also the easiest state in the country for companies to purchase renewable energy. In addition, Iowa has the country’s most reliable electric grid, and some of the nation’s lowest energy prices. The availability of affordable, ample and reliable wind energy in Iowa is a major reason tech companies including Apple, Google, Facebook and Microsoft are investing billions in wind-powered facilities in the Hawkeye State.
