Opportunity for Culver to Keep Promises for Renewable Energy

February 8, 2007

There is one opening on the three-person Iowa Utilities Board that new Governor Chet Culver must soon fill. His pick will speak volumes about what the future holds for Iowa's renewable energy efforts.

During his campaign, Culver said his plan was to make Iowa "the renewable energy capitol of the world." Michelle Kenyon-Brown, executive director of the Iowa Renewable Energy Association, says this is his golden opportunity to make it happen.

"We need someone who is well-grounded in the 20th Century, to take us forward into the 21st century using wind and solar technologies. The ideal candidate will clearly understand both current challenges to renewable energy production, and how to overcome them."

Kenyon-Brown adds the new Board member will be a key player in preparing the state to take advantage of current and future "clean energy" technologies, and to ensure Iowa's role in the nation's renewable energy and pollution reduction efforts.
