A few weeks, we introduced you to Jeb Kopera, the energy services intern at IAMU. The Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities received a grant from the American Public Power Association Demonstration of Energy & Efficiency Developments (DEED) program to sponsor the internship for Jeb, an Industrial Engineering student at Iowa State University. Jeb has been instrumental in assisting members with the filing of their biennial IUB energy efficiency reports, and has brought fresh ideas to energy services to better assist our members.
APPA is the national organization serving the interests of the nation’s more than 2,000 community- and state-owned electric utilities. The association established the DEED program in 1980 to sponsor and conduct activities related to energy innovation that improve efficiency or lower costs in providing energy services to consumers of publicly owned electric utilities. DEED funds are used to support innovative utility programs. IAMU is a member of APPA and DEED.
For more information on APPA and DEED programs please visit their website. To learn more about how your utility can successfully apply for DEED grants and other funding opportunities, register for IAMU’s grant workshop on August 3 at our facility in Ankeny.
