Waukee could join a list of cities that allow ground-mounted solar panels

Waukee is close to allowing ground-mounted residential solar energy systems — but only at homes on large plots of land.

The change would not allow the same kind of flexibility that other homeowners in the Des Moines metro have to decide what kinds of solar panels work best for their homes. But it still would be a first for Waukee and part of a growing trend across Iowa in homeowners who choose solar energy.

For the owner of what could be the first ground-mounted residential solar panels in the city, it’s about lowering his electric bill.

Ron Grubb has lived on five acres of land in Waukee for about 25 years. He has a large home with a pool and a pool house that runs up his electric bill.
