Port of Burlington’s New “Eco-Friendly” Feature

The Port of Burlington is “going green” thanks to Alliant Energy and the Burlington Renewable Energy Committee.

The committee installed a solar photovoltiac system on the roof of the Port which supplies some, but not all, of the energy needed to run the building. The new system also features a display inside the Port that shows how much energy the system is generating, which was provided by a $2,650 grant from Alliant. Alliant Energy is working to bring awareness about the benifits solar energy can have on the Burlington Community.
