Solar Panel Rebates in Missouri

When discussing solar power, we usually compare it to buying a home. Yes, you have to save up beforehand and get good financing, but then you get to own the energy you use, instead of renting it from an energy company.

What if we told you that there are ways to lower the cost of ownership? Because solar power is good for the environment, federal and local governments want to incentivize it. To do this, they subsidize solar panels, paying a portion of the cost. Below we’ll discuss some of the solar panel rebates available to Missouri residents.

The Federal Solar Panel Rebate

The federal government currently offers the biggest rebate available to solar power owners. If you’re a homeowner who’s getting solar power installed, you’ll receive the Solar Power Tax Credit, which compensates you for 30% of the cost of your panels.

Missouri Solar Panel Rebates

The biggest financial benefit you’ll get from the state of Missouri is the property tax exemption. The value of your home will probably rise when you install solar panels in your home. However, this added value will not be taken into account when considering your property taxes. Also you need to consider the type and cost of your solar panels that will be installed at your home.

Other Solar Panel Rebates in Missouri

The other biggest solar panel rebates in Missouri aren’t available to everyone. Instead, they vary based on which power company you use.

If you get your power from Columbia Water & Light, you can get a rebate of $500 for each solar kilowatt your panels are able to produce. Empire District Electric also offers rebates to their customers, though the amount will vary based on when you originally get your panels and when you apply for your rebate. Generally speaking, you need to get your panels net metered in order to be eligible for these offers.

There are other rebates in Missouri, depending on your local government or unique situation. To determine all of the ways you can save money while getting your solar panels installed, you have to speak with an expert who understands your specific circumstances.

Solar panel systems are made of durable tempered glass and require little to no maintenance for the 25 to 35 years that they will generate power. In most cases, you don’t even need to clean your solar panels. You can let the rain or snow take care of that for you. If something does happen, you will have manufacturer warranties on all equipment installed by Barrett Solar.

Solar rebates and incentives vary depending on where you live. In Kansas the largest incentive available is the 26% federal investment tax credit (ITC) which allows you to deduct 26% of the cost of your solar energy system from your taxes. Certain municipalities and utilities also offer cash rebates and other incentives. If you are a business in a rural area or a farmer, the USDA offers grants as well.

Generally it takes very large hail or a major storm to damage your solar panel system. After you go solar you will want to make sure your homeowners insurance policy has enough coverage to replace any of your panels that may be damaged in a heavy storm.

The cost of a solar panel system will depend on many factors, including the size of the system, the equipment, and the financing method. A solar panel system should be viewed as a major home upgrade, and because every home is different it is never good to base an idea of what something should cost off a ballpark figure found on the internet. Barrett Solar offers completely free no obligation solar proposals, and in most cases we can give you an accurate quote with just your historical energy usage data.
