Moxie helps to Solarize Johnson County

Blog
Solarize Johnson County is a group purchasing program for residential solar. Offered by Johnson County, six partner cities, and the Midwest Renewable Energy Association, homeowners throughout Johnson County and West Branch, Iowa may participate in this program to pool their buying power and secure significant discounts that make installing solar more affordable. The key ingredient for most participants is the pricing for the group buy. The competitive installer selection process ensures the program achieves a price per watt lower than what any individual would generally be able to get on the market. In addition, the price decreases for everyone in the group buy when certain benchmarks are surpassed.

Moxie Solar meets with State Representative Art Staed

Blog
Today CEO Jenn Hall and President Jason Hall met with a State Representative from Iowa House District 66 in Cedar Rapids. Art Staed stopped by Moxie Solar to talk about the future of solar energy in Iowa.  Art had this to say: "The Halls are concerned about current policy and budget legislation that would remove solar tax credits and other energy-saving incentives while placing barriers on grid connection, including flat monthly rates. Moxie Solar's request, “We just need things to remain ‘status quo’.”  I agree with the Halls, and not just because solar is better for the environment than fossil fuels - which it certainly is - but it's fiscally sound. Economically, Iowa can’t afford to risk losing hundreds of good-paying solar energy jobs. Solar energy tax credits pay for…

Blog
