The City of Dubuque requires a Solar Thermal License in order for a person to install a solar thermal project on a home or business. The requirement does not apply to solar photovoltaics. The licensing requirement can be met one of two ways.

  • An installer may be Solar Thermal Certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) or
  • An installer may complete the Northeast Iowa Community College Solar Thermal Training

Installers are also required to obtain a permit before altering or installing a system. Application details are available on the program web site.
