Cedar Rapids is going solar, thanks to a program called Solarize Cedar Rapids and Linn County. The effort is in cooperation with Midwest Renewable Energy Association.

It offers homeowners a savings on their energy bills if they install solar panels on their home.


Some homeowners in Cedar Rapids are very happy to participate in the program.

The Solarize Cedar Rapids program is going on until September 30th and customers are responding positively.

One customer who took advantage of the program says that  installing solar panels on his house should save him around 8 thousand dollars within 5 years.
