Click here to send an email to your Iowa representative to oppose HF 669 a bill championed by MidAmerican Energy. Use this action alert to tell them to oppose House File 669. On March 18, the Senate passed the Sunshine Tax that will allow investor-owned utilities to monopolize the sun if it becomes law.
We have a real chance in the House to stop this Sunshine Tax attempting to end net metering as we know it.
We must keep up the pressure to preserve net metering and customer-owned energy generation. We became a leader in wind energy under the current rules. There is no reason to change the rules now as our state invests in solar energy development.
