Brian Brown is taking control of his business. Not what goes on inside — he’s already got that. But 300 solar panels added to his roof make utility company rate hikes irrelevant.

“Two weeks after I decided to go solar, Alliant announced its 10 percent rate hike. I didn’t even care,” said Brown, who owns Millennium Surfaces in Ottumwa.

The announcement validated his decision to take his company to a completely solar-powered state.


“I like to have control of my business, at least over those things I can control,” he said Thursday. “One hundred percent of the water Millennium uses is recycled — and has been for about 10 years.”

While material and labor are a big part of doing business, there’s typically “overhead” as well: mortgage or rent, insurance requirements, heat or electric bills.
