Installing solar systems is a great way to reduce energy consumption from the grid, save money, and protect our planet for future generations. Solar electric systems are efficient, low maintenance, and last a long time. The immediate reduction in monthly electricity spending can be enough to cover all, or most, of the solar loan payment. With greenpenny residential solar financing, for example, a new system installation can be financed with no money down and the monthly utility bill can be swapped for a solar payment that will be paid off in 12 years or less. Residential and commercial solar financing is available in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri and Wisconsin.
Having begun nearly 20 years ago, we understand solar project financing and offer reasonable terms to help buyers make smart investments in their property. In the last five years, we’ve financed hundreds of solar projects for non-profits like universities, schools and municipalities – as well as commercial enterprises, farmers and families. And we’d like to do a lot more!

Greenpenny aspires to be a catalyst for positive change by inspiring governments, businesses and individuals to support greater adoption of clean energy. As part of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, member of 1% for the Planet®, and support for the first in the nation Winneshiek Energy District, greenpenny knows collectively we can be a more powerful source to solving the world’s climate problem. We’re proud to come from a community with over 10 times our state’s per capita solar average, and one of the highest adoption rates in the nation. We have a proven ability to work together and do our part to develop real financial solutions that make economic sense and protect Mother Earth.
Having risen through the ranks of a national bank, Jason MacDuff is now happy to be working closer to his values at greenpenny, and living (part-time, at least) close to family in Iowa. He joined greenpenny two years ago after taking a break from his career to travel. It was in Antarctica and South American Patagonia, Amazon, and Galapagos Islands where he gained insight from environmental scientists and researchers on the effects of climate change. It was clear then as it is now, the world needs real solutions to reduce and recapture carbon from the atmosphere now, and Jason came home committed to putting his financial services’ experience to use. Jason and greenpenny believe in the importance of using your money as your voice for fiscal and environmental advocacy. And we want to do our part to build a better world by putting the power in the hands of our customers and partners – this is where it begins.
