Iowa City, IA
Iowa Solar is your professional installation company for solar panels in Iowa City! Why choose a local solar installer? Well that's because Iowa Solar is a one-stop shop that sells and installs solar systems, and we do everything for you. We employ our own installation teams and train them in house. That's part of the Iowa Solar difference.
We are not a solar sales company. Do you know what that even is? That's a company that sells solar to homeowners over a wide geographical area but then outsources the actual installation labor. The outsourced company then has to supply all the equipment, managing filing for permits, and do the actual install too. For example, a solar sales company might sell you a solar panel system for $15,000 but then subcontract it for $10,000 to supply and install the job. These companies often use sales tactics that leave a bad taste in customer's mouth. We don't believe in that kind of sales tactic. We prefer customer satisfaction instead of just padding sales numbers.
So wherever you live in Iowa City, whether you're right next to the University of Iowa campus, or you actually live in Coralville near the mall, we can help with your solar power needs.

How do I pay for solar? Is there financing?
Yes, there is! Buying solar is currently a better option than leasing them because financing is available and easy to get for almost everyone with fair credit. We have interest rates around 6% for nearly all borrowers at 20 year terms. This means that you can borrow the money to pay for your solar panels and it should, given all the right circumstances, cost less than you're paying the utility company now. Financing solar power for your home or business has never been easier or simpler. (Qualifications and conditions apply.)
If you are curious about solar technology, we recommend using Enphase microinverters for your solar installation system. We also install solar panels from manufacturers like Q-Cell, but also others like Panasonic and LG (but at a premium as these premium brand panels are more expensive). We are also able to install SunPower and SolarEdge inverters and we can install DC optimizers too.

Can you install utility-scale solar in Iowa City?
Large-scale solar installations are possible all over Iowa depending on your power needs, however major opposition comes as a result of oil and gas companies pouring thousands into lobbying efforts against solar farms. Local residents are given misinformation about solar panels that leads them to oppose big-scale solar installations. This information, such as solar panels leaking dangerous chemicals, is just flat out false. Solar panels are made 100% of silicon (sand and glass) and aluminum (an everyday metal). So yes, we are excited to explore the possibility of a large-scale photovoltaic system in Iowa City.
