Solar power is gaining ground around the world at "record pace," and a growing number of Iowans are also looking to convert their homes and businesses to the alternative energy, according to Bill Haman, industrial program manager for the Iowa Energy Center.

Solar energy in Iowa, Haman said, isn't like it is in the Southwestern United States, but he said it is still a good resource for the state.

Haman, who manages the Center's Alternate Energy Revolving Loan Program which offers zero percent financing for renewable energy projects, said he has received numerous solar applications from Eastern Iowa.
