DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) A delegation from the prefecture in Japan where a tsunami damaged a nuclear power plant was in Dubuque to learn about an innovative energy program.

The 12-person delegation from Fukushima prefecture visited the United States to learn more about safer energy alternatives in the wake of the March 2011 disaster at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant.

They came to Dubuque on Oct. 16 to learn about the Smarter Electricity pilot study, in which more than 1,200 households have been allowed to more closely monitor their electricity consumption. The program has helped consumers make better choices about their energy use.

It was funded by a state grant and in partnership with Alliant Energy, Interstate Power and Light Company and IBM Research.

The Japanese group spent a few hours in Dubuque.
