Topic: Mr. Steve Bernard will talk about the Cedar Falls Utilities (CFU) Simple Solar Community Solar Project. Simple Solar consists of a collection of several solar panels that CFU has built near Prairie Lakes Park in Cedar Falls.

This project will be coming “on-line” soon.

He is a Cedar Falls native and graduated from Iowa State in 1985 with a Bachelors’ degree in mechanical engineering.
