Follow these simple tips to live more sustainably!

Adjust your day-to-day behaviors

Energy conservation can be as simple as turning off lights when you do not need them.

Replace outdated appliances

Efficient bulbs are more costly, but longer service mean they cost less in the long run.

Reduce your water heating expenses

Water heating is a major contributor to your total energy consumption.

Upgrade your HVAC system

Upgrading to an ENERGY STAR certification can save you up to 12% on your heating bill.


We recommend the Nest Learning Thermostat. The Nest Learning Thermostat is the first thermostat to get ENERGY STAR certified. It learns what temperature you like and builds a schedule around yours. Since 2011, the Nest Thermostat has saved billions of kWh of energy in millions of homes worldwide. And independent studies showed that it saved people an average of 10% to 12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills. So in under two years, it can pay for itself.


Light your home using the same amount of light for less money. An average household dedicates about 5% of its energy budget to lighting. Switching to energy-efficient lighting is one of the fastest ways to cut your energy bills. By replacing your home’s five most frequently used light fixtures or bulbs with models that have earned the ENERGY STAR, you can save $45 each year.


It means a lot to us at MOXIE that we de-mystify the EV discussion. That’s why we created VERV, our EV sister company. We want to spend more time educating potential customers on an EV that’s right for them, rather than trying to “close the deal.” At MOXIE our roots are firmly planted in the sale and installation of solar panel systems, which is where we perfected the concept of “Educate First.”


With a home energy storage system, your ability to consume and utilize clean energy from the sun is nearly limitless. A battery pack can store surplus solar energy during the day and use that energy later when the sun is not shining. At night, your home draws from your battery system, powering your home with clean energy 24/7. It’s also a priceless item to have in case of power outages.

Don't just take our word for it...


The quality of the work and follow through have been excellent. Making electricity now.

Moxie Solar was awesome. Every single step of the process was done well. Every staff we worked with was amazing and very responsive. I never write reviews for anything, but this one is well deserved. They were fantastic!..

Iowa City Customer

I had a positive experience with Moxie. Very helpful from start to finish. Handled all permits and connections with mid american and the installers/sales team were very professional and easy to get a hold of. Very happy to have solar on my house and in the first five months since install, I’ve produced more than I’ve used, so my bills have been minimal. The whole process has been very easy and I cannot believe more people don’t have solar.

Matthew Moore

“The project was both exciting and challenging, especially since it was the first time a Power Purchase Agreement was being used by a county in Iowa for a solar photovoltaic array. The arrays are meeting production expectations, and the online portal that Moxie provided helps educate the public about the value of solar energy.”

I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Moxie. They were fast, efficient and customer friendly from beginning to end. In short, they made everything easy. I would strongly recommend them to anyone considering solar!

Moxie Solar installed a solar array at our house in Cedar Rapids. We are super pleased with the results. Everyone from Moxie was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Thanks and kudos to all of you!

We bought a system from Moxie as part of the Linn County Solarize program. It’s currently (pun intended) providing about half of our monthly demand which includes recharging a Chevy Volt. Our system is somewhat limited by lack of roof space and the orientation of our property but I feel like are getting as much as possible out of it There have been a couple of glitches but service has always been prompt….


We recently had Moxie install solar panels on our business property. This was something we had been thinking about for some time, but when we met Rich, we didn’t know what we should be looking for or where to begin. Rich came out to our office and took the time to talk with us about our usage and what we were looking to accomplish. He helped us calculate the correct size system for our specific needs, design the most efficient system, and even explained why going with something too big would not only be unnecessary, but also wouldn’t be cost effective in terms of initial cost vs. benefit.
