Iowa Solar Tax Credits Make Solar Panel Installation More Affordable

Solar Tax Credits Iowa

The first question that most homeowners and business owners in Iowa have when considering solar panel installation is “how much is this going to cost?” The answer is simply, “it depends.” The primary factors determining the cost of this investment are the size and quality of the solar panel system being installed. However, many Iowa residents are surprised to learn that solar panels can be much more affordable than they initially seem. For example, residents of Iowa are eligible for solar tax credits that can significantly defray the cost.

Understanding Iowa Solar Tax Credits

First and foremost, it is important to understand that solar tax credits in Iowa are not fixed. These rebates change frequently, and typically the amounts have decreased over time. However, according to, as of early 2020, Iowa residents are eligible for a tax credit equal to 50% of the federal tax credit up to a maximum of $5,000. This means if you received a $2,000 federal tax credit, you’d receive an additional $1,000 Iowa solar tax credit. Together, this can amount to significant savings on the upfront cost of your solar panel installation.
