Sunshine Tax Casts Shadow Over Iowa’s Growing Solar Industry

Blog
Change often comes with growing pains. This is especially true in the renewable energy industry. While many embrace alternative power options and their financial and environmental benefits, others do not. The biggest opposition often comes from those who stand to lose money.

This is good news for anyone who wants to save money, protect the environment, and see job growth in the region.

Solar installers – One of the fastest growing jobs in the nation

Solar installers – One of the fastest growing jobs in the nation

Blog
In the solar industry, North Liberty-based solar company Moxie became one of the state’s early adopters of solar when it began operations in 2008. Company founder Jason Hall said Moxie has grown from seven employees in fewer than five years ago to close to 100 — with the large majority of those employees in Iowa. Hall attributed growth in jobs to the strength of the solar market across the state, which has been driven largely by the falling cost of installing solar arrays. Hall said the cost has dropped from about $8 per watt a decade ago to around $3 per watt. “There’s never been a better time, from an economics point of view, to purchase solar,” he said. Growth in solar has allowed the company to expand into other…

Moxie Rebrands for a National Image – Corridor Business Journal

Blog
“Moxie: America’s Solar Company” was the new brand and tagline introduced April 11 at Moxie’s Dixon, Illinois, operations center. CEO Jason Hall said the company has been growing fast, and some things had to change. “We’re now in Denver, Austin, Cleveland, Chicago,” Mr. Hall said. “It was our opinion that our [previous] logo wasn’t going to play as well in those markets. We kind of look like the local solar installer. We want to be seen as a national provider.” Mr. Hall founded the company in North Liberty in 2008. In its original iteration as Greenhall Industries, the business helped Iowans become more energy efficient with services such as lighting upgrades that could be funded partly through utility rebates. When Iowa approved a solar income tax credit in 2012 to…
