Our Principles

We thrive because of honesty and integrity. Without that, we are no different than anyone else.

Take pride in everything you do. If you won’t be proud of it, don’t do it.

School is always open. We are always taking steps to learn, hone our craft, and improve.

Always pay the True price.

Our consultants will walk you through the process and help you make the best decisions for your project. We will create a system that fits your needs. You choose components and pay only for what you want. True Solar makes the process of going solar easy, approachable, and pressure-free.

Enjoy a completely remote process.

We'll walk you through everything you need to know about going solar from the comfort of your home. We’ll answer all your questions about solar, evaluate your home energy use, and design a customized solution just for you, and we’ll never knock on your door or ask to sit down at your kitchen table.

Hassle-free installation every time.

At True Solar we always strive to provide the fastest and highest-quality installation in the industry. We install our premium panels using a low-profile racking system and run conduit on the interior of the home to give your home an attractive upgrade. We use top-quality materials and back it up with a workmanship guarantee.

A local company you can trust.

True Solar is led by Iowa solar veterans with industry experience. We take pride in educating our customers and providing the best solution for their needs. We don’t want to take over the world, we will never cut and run, we just want to provide a valuable service to our community. Let us prove to you why True Solar is different.
