A bipartisan group of lawmakers in the Iowa Senate introduced a bill that would create a feed-in tariff system designed to spur development of "utility-owned and customer-owned" renewable-energy production facilities.

Under the bill, the Iowa Utility Board would be tasked with determining a wind tariff based on the "wind speed at the project location."
