When it comes to investing in renewable energy, Iowa is near the top of the class. The state ranks 10th nationally and number one in the midwest. The survey ranked states based on their focus on renewable energy sources like wind, solar, geothermal, and more.

Experts say that Iowa has played an important role in the expanded role of renewable energy. Iowa was the first state to pass renewable electricity standards back in 1983. Now there are 29 states with measures in place.

Iowa ranked first in the nation for creating an environment for businesses looking to buy clean power from utilities. The state was also praised for its increase in wind energy and a decrease in the use of coal.

Scientists say that it continues to be an exciting time for renewable energy and that states like Iowa are leading the charge.
