First of its kind in Iowa, Montezuma Light & Power project gains federal funding

February 27, 2024

The U.S. Department of Energy is supporting an Iowa State-led project to build the first “microgrid” in rural Iowa. The project will create a utility-scale microgrid in Montezuma to provide reliable, resilient and affordable electricity. The new system will feature power generation from solar panels, a battery storage system and two chargers for electric vehicles.

DGR Engineering has worked with Montezuma Light & Power to develop this unique “microgrid” project and to secure funding and looks forward to construction and completion of the project. Learn more about the first microgrid in rural Iowa:
