How can Winneshiek County residents live more sustainably and better protect the environment for today and tomorrow? Learn more about how to tap into solar energy and reduce landfill waste at the next meeting of the Luther College Woman’s Club.
Joel Zook will present “Power from the Sun,” and John Logsdon will speak on “Recycling Our Resources” at the group’s September meeting, to be held Tuesday, September 17, at 1:30 p.m. in Peace Dining Room, Dahl Centennial Union, on the Luther campus. Zook will talk about opportunities for installing solar, focusing on the economics of solar for residences. (This year, 2019, is the last year to claim the full 30 percent federal solar tax credit, with the tax credit scheduled to phase out over the next two years.) Logsdon’s presentation will cover the history of Winneshiek County’s recycling efforts, including how recycling helps reduce waste in the county landfill.
