Des Moines, Iowa

Iowa

ELPC’s team in Des Moines works to advance renewable energy, improve soil health, and protect safe clean water for all. Iowa has the nation’s most installed wind power per capita in the nation, powering 41% of the state’s electricity, which is good for the environment and the economy. ELPC is working to advance solar energy development for a similar Iowa success story, and we’re making progress statewide.

Iowa is a national leader in agriculture and clean energy, and the state’s presidential caucuses are a focal point of the national political landscape every four years. ELPC knows the challenges and opportunities here in the heartland. We are fighting for healthy communities by protecting safe, clean drinking water and advancing renewable energy opportunities throughout Iowa.
