The University of Northern Iowa Center for Energy & Environmental Education (CEEE) is excited to announce the Dubuque County– Go Solar Group Buy Program. 

The program, covering Dubuque County and surrounding areas of East Dubuque, Manchester and Edgewood, is designed to provide businesses, farms and residents with educational seminars to inform and promote the cost-saving and sustainable benefits of solar technology and provide property owners the opportunity to invest in lower cost solar installations through a limited time county-wide volume-purchasing program.

Join us for a FREE Seminar to learn about:

  • How to substantially reduce your monthly electricity bill.
  • Reducing your carbon footprint and investing in renewable energy.
  • Offsetting over 70% of the total cost via tax credits, equipment depreciation, and energy grants.
  • Solar module 25-year warranty and 40+ year life expectancy.


Please RSVP here or by contacting Eric Giddens at (319) 273-7499 or at eric.giddens@uni.edu.
