Central Iowa Power Cooperative (CIPCO) — Iowa's largest cooperative energy provider — will commission the installations while the clean energy will be provided to their membership.

The rigors of their quality assurance program distinguishes their work and helps to ensure long-term project reliability.”

Once completed, the five PV plants are expected to reduce over five million tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.
