Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa) visited the New Fashion Pork Feedmill in Estherville, IA on Friday. Team members from New Fashion Pork, Trusted Energy and various news agency's were on hand to talk with Congressman King and view the company's new solar energy panels.
Iowa's Fourth Congressional District, which King represents, is an abundant source of renewable energy. "We looked at other operations today and solar is coming in to be a significant part of renewable energy," King said.
According to Jay Moore, New Fashion Pork Director of Environmental Services, the solar array was built last November at an approximate cost $435,000.
"It provides about 15 to 20 percent of our energy needs," Moore said. "We're also looking at using solar energy for our hog barns in rural areas."
