MOXIE Partners with Local Businesses to Empower Eastern Iowa Healthcare Workers

Update 4/3/20: Due to overwhelming support and appreciation for this program we have extended this offer to all healthcare workers living in any of the many MOXIE service areas.

Necessity is the mother of innovation. In these uncertain times, a new one-of-a-kind program has been created to help ensure healthcare workers can take care of life’s necessary, yet time consuming and expensive tasks.

Developed through a partnership of local businesses, including MOXIE, GreenState Credit Union, New Pioneer Co-op, Crescent Electric, and Relion Insurance Solutions, the EMPOWERMED Program provides Eastern Iowa healthcare workers with significantly discounted solar energy systems (at or near MOXIE’s cost) and an immediate $1,000 for grocery delivery, childcare, house cleaning, or anything else they may need.

MOXIE, a leading solar panel installation company headquartered in North Liberty, Iowa, first created the EMPOWERMED Program after its CEO, Jason Hall, heard disheartening stories of the current situation for healthcare workers right here in Eastern Iowa.

“Through all the commotion, there are constant reminders of how much burden is on our healthcare workers” says Hall.”I can’t imagine how they can find time to do the necessary but tiresome tasks, like buy groceries or clean their house, when they’re also on the frontlines of fighting COVID-19.”

On top of grocery shopping and home cleaning, childcare is also proving to be a challenge for healthcare workers. While certain daycares are staying open to help the necessary employees stay at work, the cost of daycare has never been cheap, and an increase in work hours for healthcare professionals often means an increase in daycare costs.

“EMPOWERMED will provide at-or-near-cost solar installations for healthcare workers in the Eastern Iowa Area,” Julian Vandervelde, MOXIE Quad Cities Area President explained. “Many times, in literally the first month, they will see a significant decrease in their monthly bills. After this is all over, they will have a solid investment for a fraction of the cost.”

To alleviate the most immediate burden on healthcare workers, the EMPOWERMED Program is also designed to provide an instant $1,000 of support upon signing. The $1,000 can be used for absolutely anything the healthcare worker may need.

By partnering with local companies and putting cash in the hands of our heroic healthcare workers, MOXIE hopes the EMPOWERMED Program will serve a dual-purpose; helping healthcare workers make ends meet, while also keeping local Iowans employed, engaged, and valued during this time of crisis.

Anyone working in the healthcare field in Eastern Iowa is eligible for the EMPOWERMED Program and can learn more by setting up a quick virtual consultation, either by phone or video chat. 

“The power of this coalition is stronger than its parts,’ says Hall, ‘When we approached these other local companies, GreenState, New Pioneer, Crescent, and Relion, they all jumped at the chance to do good for the healthcare providers in Eastern Iowa. It says a lot about them, and I know that together we can deliver a service offering that has never been experienced in Eastern Iowa, during a time when it is needed most.”
