Ruling is victory for solar energy
Iowas’ Supreme Court Ruling supporting Solar Energy is good news.
The split court decided that Eagle Point solar would be within the law by selling electricity to Dubuque.
The company installs solar panels on the roof of a city building. The agreements also known as power purchase agreements could spur the increased manufacturing of solar power.

“This ruling now makes other solar projects like this viable,” he said in a statement. “We can go to any municipality, any university, any wastewater treatment plant, churches … and we can put solar on their roof or on their property — and they have to come up with zero dollars to do this.”
