The Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) announced that it will receive a $1.03 million federal grant to make it easier to install rooftop solar panels in the state.

The funds will be used by the Iowa Statewide Readiness Initiative to cut the “soft costs” of rooftop solar installations. These costs can account for up to 60% of the total expense of rooftop solar projects, and are associated with zoning, acquiring permits, and connecting to the electricity grid.
