Iowa Pork Industry Warming Up to Solar Power
DES MOINES, Iowa- The Iowa Pork Congress for 2018 is underway with 5000 people expected to attend. The show features some 500 booths with exhibits around the pork industry. One growing area of companies selling their product here, is the solar industry. “It’s been a great growth in a pork industry and farms in general with power usage being up especially in the barns,” said Jeremy Pierson of Iowa Wind and Solar, a Fairfield Iowa firm. “We’re showing a great benefit in reducing or eliminating the power bill.”
