Solar power FAQs

  • The cost of a solar panel system will depend on various factors, like the amount of energy your home needs, whether you install a battery with your panels, and local labor and permitting costs. On average, an 8 kW system in Iowa costs around $32,080 prior to the deduction of savings from the 30% federal tax credit.

  • Solar power could be a good investment if you want to save on your energy costs over time. You’ll need to make a significant upfront payment, but you’ll benefit from lower bills for years to come. To decide whether solar is right for you, you should research potential costs and how the solar installation process works. Look at your current energy usage, the incentives you could claim to help you fund your purchase, and whether you can afford to buy solar panels outright.

  • There are many great solar installers in Iowa. You can research your options online before making your choice. On the SaveOnEnergy marketplace, we provide you with independent and reliable information about solar providers. If you’d like to talk to a solar expert to get help making your decision, feel free to call the number on your screen.

  • Solar power benefits the environment because the panels don’t produce carbon dioxide when they generate power. This helps reduce CO2 levels in the atmosphere, which can mitigate climate change. In addition, solar is a renewable energy source since producing power through solar panels does not deplete the sun. It differs from fossil fuels, which can only be burned once.
