Van Wall Energy Offers Savings on Personal Wind Turbines

Effective immediately, Iowa Farm Bureau members qualify for exclusive savings of $2,500 - $10,000 from Van Wall Energy on the required maintenance agreement with the purchase of Endurance personal wind turbines.  Van Wall is the exclusive distributor of Endurance wind turbines for the entire state of Iowa and will service all counties.
Investing in a personal wind turbine not only helps reduce energy costs, it locks in the future cost of electrical energy while reducing the carbon footprint.

Van Wall Energy offers the Endurance E-3120 model which produces 180,00 0 – 200,000 kWh annually for large livestock and grain handling operations and the S-434 model which produces 16,000 – 19,000 kWh annually for acreages and small livestock operations. Only Farm Bureau members who purchase an Endurance turbine will receive the required 5-year maintenance agreement at no charge, saving $2,500 to $10,000 on the initial investment cost.

Van Wall will conduct a free assessment and work with clients before and after a purchase decision:

  1. 1.        Determine their annual power usage
  2. 2.        Evaluate the proposed turbine site
  3. 3.        Provide a detailed assessment including ROI and cash flow
  4. 4.        Assist in securing permits and interconnection agreements
  5. 5.        Assist in filing appropriate financial incentive forms
  6. 6.        Install the turbine
  7. 7.        Maintain the turbine

During the 2011 Iowa State Fair, Van Wall Energy will have Endurance wind turbine components on display and personnel present in Farm Bureau Park to talk to members about the value of considering a personal wind turbine or to set up an appointment.

Interested members can learn more or request a free assessment by calling Van Wall at (800) 568-2381 or visiting their website at www.vanwall.com/wind-turbines.

Farm Bureau members can now save on Ford & Lincoln vehicles

Farm Bureau members can now save $500 on a purchase of most new Ford and Lincoln vehicles through a new partnership between the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation (IFBF) and Ford Motor Company.

The benefit is 'stackable', meaning it can be combined with most other public offers such as financing and trade-in offers during the October Built Ford Tough Sales Event or other dealership discounts. Some exceptions may apply.
"Farm Bureau is pleased to partner with Ford to offer our members a welcome benefit in trying economic times, when all Americans are looking for ways to stretch a dollar," says Craig Lang, IFBF president.

In order to claim the Ford Bonus Cash discount, Iowans are required to have a minimum 60-day membership and download a Member Verification Certificate from www.Fordspecialoffer.com/farmbureau/ia. The Farm Bureau benefit can be used on the purchase or lease of a new Ford or Lincoln vehicle, including select hybrid models, which are eco-friendly and also come in a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Certain customer and purchase eligibility restrictions do apply.
