DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A state agency has been awarded a $1 million grant from the U.S Department of Energy to launch a statewide program aimed at promoting the installation of solar power systems.

The Iowa Economic Development Authority will work with the Iowa Environmental Council and other groups to implement the program over the next three years.

The money will be used to increase solar awareness and encourage installation of solar power generation systems.

Several local governments will serve as pilot organizations to implement measures to reduce barriers to solar installation. They include Floyd County, Linn County, and the cities of Cedar Rapids, Des Moines and Dubuque.

At least two communities serviced by a municipal electrical utility also will participate as pilot cities.
