The Solarize Johnson County program offering discounted residential solar to area residents wrapped up this week with an astounding 1.15 megawatt (1,153 kW) in secured solar projects, and a few more yet to be finalized. More than 180 households have taken advantage of the outright discount and maximized additional savings offered by the program.

The program surpassed the 607 kW of solar added through the successful Solarize Cedar Rapids and Linn County program offered in 2017. That program had 104 participants.

North Liberty-based Moxie Solar, the competitively-selected installer for the program, followed up on more than 800 leads gained through Solar Power Hours hosted by the county and cities and through online sign-ups.

“We would especially like to thank Johnson County staff for their vision and commitment to supporting Solarize Johnson County this summer,” Hoffman added.

November elections

I have had a number of folks ask me about the November elections. They are concerned about the direction of our state and country, and are wondering what they can do.

The answer is simple: Volunteer! In Johnson County, there are offices in North Liberty and Iowa City. You can walk in seven days a week, grab a packet, and either doorknock or make phone calls.

Neither is hard, but if you want to join up with a more experienced volunteer for your first time or two, the staff will make that happen.
