Iowa energy conservation projects get over $500K

WEST DES MOINES (AP) -- Federal officials are awarding more than $500,000 to energy conservation projects in West Des Moines.

U.S. Rep. Leonard Boswell says the $557,000 is coming from the U.S. Department of Energy.

The Democrat says making Iowa communities more energy efficient will help bring down bottom-line costs for families and businesses.

The funds can be used for projects including, the development of energy-efficient building codes and creating incentives for energy efficiency improvements.

West Des Moines officials have asked MidAmerican Energy for audits on 13 facilities.
