Solar PV in Monona

The City of Monona is committed to supporting alternative clean energy systems and technology. As part of that commitment, the City has assembled solar power information as it relates to planning, permitting, and education. This information is provided to earn SolSmart recognition for making it faster, easier, and more affordable for our Citizens to go solar.

With the Clayton County Energy District & Winneshiek Energy District serving as our SolSmart Advisors the city is working to increase the efficiency of local processes related to solar development.

Solar Panel/Array Installation

To install a solar array, please complete a building permit form, available in City Hall. Solar is currently allowed by-rights as an accessory structure in all residential zones and is permitted as an accessory use in all other zones as accessory uses and structures customarily incidental to any principal permitted use.

The State of Iowa is responsible for electrical permitting and inspections of Monona’s solar installations. Solar installations require an electrical permit from the State of Iowa website prior to an electrical inspection. Installations must comply with the Iowa building code. Electrical permits may be submitted, inspections scheduled, and fees paid through the online State of Iowa portal. The State of Iowa will complete one electrical inspection at the completion of the project. No further inspections are required. In most cases, the solar contractor will coordinate the permit application and the timing of the State electrical inspection.
