RE: NEW SOLAR ARRAY DEDICATION
Hamilton County Conservation in partnership with Eagle Point Solar of Dubuque, Iowa is announcing the ribbon cutting and dedication of the new solar array system located at Little Wall Lake Park, south of Jewell, Iowa. The dedication will be held on Saturday, May 6th from 10 AM to 12 Noon. At 11:00 AM, a ribbon cutting ceremony will take place and the public will be allowed to tour the solar array system. At 11:15 AM, Larry Steffen of Eagle Point Solar will present an overview of the solar array along with addressing any questions regarding the entire project or the project’s PPA funding. Little Wall Lake Park will become the first County Park in Iowa to have a 100% offset of their electrical needs by producing its own power through the solar array. “This project is over three years in the making, and has finally come to fruition” according to Conservation Director, Brian Lammers. This project was made possible with partnerships with the Hamilton County Supervisors, Eagle Point Solar, Hamilton County Conservation Board, and Alliant Energy. Ads will be placed with the media regarding details and agenda for the event. Along with this dedication, Hamilton County Conservation will also be introducing Michelle Pelzer of Red Oak, Iowa as the new Park Ranger assigned to Little Wall Lake Park. Michelle will start her duties at Little Wall Lake on May 1st. For more information please contact Hamilton County Conservation at 515-832-9570 or visit our website at www.mycountyparks.com
