ORION SMART POWER
The Show-Me State is certainly no stranger to bright days, boasting an annual average of 206 sunny days, one over the national total. And with such a high number of sunlight hours throughout the year, it comes as no surprise that 83% of Missouri's roofs are potentially suitable for solar energy. Even though the state is currently ranked 34th in the country for solar utilization, various incentives exist to inspire individuals and companies to take up clean energy. Currently around 0.68% of the entire state's electricity is generated from solar power - sufficient to power more than 40,000 households.
4 Reasons Why It’s Worth Going Solar in Missouri
Add battery storage to your solar system so you can rely on clean energy and disconnect from the grid during outages.
COUNT ON SAVINGS
Reduce your carbon footprint while harnessing the power of the sun. Solar panels take advantage of this by providing consistent, reliable power.
LOWER YOUR FOOTPRINT
Solar power has many advantages over fossil fuels as a renewable energy source. It is a more viable option for your home, community, and the environment.
INCREASE HOME VALUE
Due to the increasing popularity of solar-powered homes, they stand out, resulting in immense profits as they sell faster and at a higher value in the national real estate market.
Available Solar Incentives Missouri
Incentives help lower the cost of your solar energy system. Those available in Missouri include:
Solar Tax Credit: Most solar energy installations are eligible for the Residential Clean Energy Credit, previously called the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC). Eligible homeowners can deduct up to 30% of their solar power system’s costs from their total tax liability for the year of installation.
State Property Tax Exemption: Solar has been shown to increase the value of your home. Missouri exempts this addition from your property taxes, meaning you don’t pay extra taxes because you got solar panels.
Local Utility Rebates: Some local electric cooperatives and municipal utilities including Columbia Water & Light, Kansas City Power & Light, Empire District Electric, and Ameren Missouri may offer solar rebate programs to offset the cost of your renewable energy system even further.
