Wind is not the only renewable energy source that should be implemented in Iowa. Photovoltaic solar systems are also appropriate for homeowners in Iowa. First of all, Iowa receives more sun hours per day than Germany, the largest user of photovoltaic solar systems. Second, Iowa offers fantastic solar rebates. Iowa offers a Renewable Energy Production Tax Credit that applies to homeowners and photovoltaics at $0.01/kWh.
Iowa also offers a Property Tax Exemption for Renewable Energy Systems that applies to photovoltaics. In Iowa, the market value added to a property by a solar energy system is exempt from the state's property tax for five full assessment years. <full Iowa Rebate Article>
