In Iowa, the State Energy Office used SEP funds to support the development of a variety of projects, such as the Iowa Waste Reduction Assistance Center at the University of Northern Iowa. Leveraging grant funds, the center created a program to reduce energy use and costs at small businesses by providing a compressed air leak detection audit. Over the six-month project, audits were completed at 25 businesses, such as auto body and service shops. Total annual savings were estimated at nearly $50,000 with the potential to save over 600,000 kWh in electrical use.
