ALTA, Iowa (KTIV) -

An Alta, Iowa man will play a prominent role in next week's presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C.  President Barack Obama has named Rob Hach as one of eight "citizen co-chairs" of the inaugural events.

Ten years ago, Hach started the small renewable energy business "Anemometry Specialists" in Alta.  The company assesses land to determine whether its feasible for a wind farm.

Like President Obama, Hach supports the extension of a wind energy production tax credit.  And even though he is a Republican, Hach is also a big supporter of Obama.  In fact, he introduced the president at Obama's campaign rally at Morningside College last September.

Hach and the other citizen co-chairs appointed by the president will take part in the National Day of Service on Saturday that kicks off the inaugural events.  They will also ride on a float in Monday's inaugural parade and attend the official inaugural balls that night.
