Iowa Recovery Act State Memo

Iowa has substantial natural resources, including wind power and is the largest ethanol producer in the United States. The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is making a meaningful down payment on the nation’s energy and environmental future. The Recovery Act investments in Iowa are supporting a broad range of clean energy projects, from energy efficiency and the smart grid to the Ames Laboratory. Through these investments, Iowa’s businesses, universities, national labs, non‐profits, and local governments are creating quality jobs today and positioning Iowa to play an important role in the new energy economy of the future.
