SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

MidAmerican Energy is going green.

The company has installed 160 solar panels on the rooftop of its downtown Sioux City building.

The panels replace an air-to-air solar system that heated the building and water.

Each panel can produce up to 235 watts to provide electricity for the building.

MidAmerican will be using a web-based software to monitor the systems performance.

The solar panels will reduce the amount of carbon output that is similar to planting 78 trees.
