IUB Issues New Rules for Home Energy Generation

Posted: Friday, May 28th, 2010 at 6:43 am

The Iowa Utilities Board is hoping to make things easier for people who want to own their own energy generation devices such as wind turbines and solar panels. They’ve issued new rules that aim to provide a more uniform and transparent process for registering such devices, while implementing what they call a “minimal” filing fee. The rules also allow for most homeowner insurance policies to be sufficient for smaller generation facilities to interconnect.
