Iowa Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds unveiled a new energy plan for the state this (Wednesday) morning:
The report spans more than 100 pages with a top priority to continue to promote a “diversity” of energy sources, including wind power and plant materials which can be an ingredient for biofuels.
OC……….into the future. :23
The plan also calls for promoting new energy technology, like cells that can store the power generated by wind turbines, plus developing a more modern power grid.
The report does not outline state spending plans for these initiatives.
It doesn’t call for legislative action either.
OC………..governmental mandates. :05
The report outlines 15 objectives.
Iowa Economic Development Authority director Debi Durham says shoring up the workforce pipeline is part one of them.
OC…………state’s energy needs. :08
State officials have been working on this plan and holding meetings around the state for months.
