Featured Episode: Credit Where Credit is Due

A simple policy known as net energy metering, or net metering, has helped hundreds of thousands of home and business owners in 38 states invest in solar electric systems. These same home and business owners have helped to protect and advance renewable energy and energy efficiency laws that are constantly under assault by wealthy and politically connected electric utilities and energy companies. In this episode, we talk with Andy Johnson, Director of the Winneshiek Energy District in Iowa, about how this battle played out in Iowa.
