Solar Energy Pioneer in Elk Horn, IA


The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) has done a series of webisodes highlighting the ways that solar energy is being implemented in different parts of the US.  I was pleasantly surprised to find Mike Howard of Iron Eagle Technologies interviewed at the 2:03 mark of episode 2.  Mike's a real pioneer in his community and is an example for the rest of the country.  In his small town of Elk Horn, IA, he has installed more electric vehicle charging points per capita than anywhere else in the world.  He has the solar PV array shown in the video and a solar water heating system (from VELUX ;-)) installed on his house next door.  We also put a VELUX solar water heater on the public school in town with a few more in the works for this year.  I'm so happy to see Mike get the national attention that he deserves!
