If you’re thinking about making the switch to solar, you may have a lot of questions, especially in the state of Missouri. Let’s go through some of the most asked questions and most important things to know about going solar in the state of Missouri.
You may have been wondering if going solar in Columbia, MO, or maybe you’ve been hesitant to make the switch because it seems like a wild investment with little return. Well, we’ve got good news for you! There has never been a better time to make the switch to solar power in Columbia, and we’ll tell you why!
Columbia averages 192 completely sunny days per year, each with a 5-hour window of peak sunshine.
Couple that with incentives from utility companies and the federal government, the cost will only go down on your investment to go green, and you’ll soon be able to produce power for your home for next to nothing (and you’ll be doing the environment a solid in the meantime!)

One of the most common concern amongst potential solar panel owners is whether their HOA will allow them to install solar panels on their roof, or if the HOA will restrict the size of the array itself.
Thankfully, in Missouri, House Bill 2152 – or the Homeowners’ Solar Rights Act – has homeowners covered. This bill protects homeowners who want to go solar by prohibiting any deed restrictions or covenants enacted by HOAs or COAs that restricts the ability to alter a home.
They can, however, determine the specific location of the solar array on one’s home within forty-five degrees east or west of due south, so long as that location does NOT hinder the effective operation of the solar system itself.
In short, HOAs can’t hold you back from going solar, but they can require a specific position on your roof for the array, so long the location does not impact the efficiency of the array itself.
One of the best ways to get your solar panels is to take advantage of the 30% Federal Tax Credit. Because the federal government knows just how important renewable energy is, they’ve implemented this incentive to encourage people to switch to solar. By taking advantage of this investment tax credit, you can get 30% of the total cost of your solar panels back in tax credits, including the cost of installation.*
Columbia Water & Light provides rebates for PV systems. Note that rebate tiers are additive. Therefore, your total rebate is calculated by adding all rebate tiers together. Rebate tiers include:
If your current utility company is Amaren Missouri, you could also qualify for an upfront rebate of $.25 per watt when you install solar panels. For an 8kW system, that could be a rebate of $2,000!
Net metering is the utility company’s standard for measuring how much power your solar panels generate and send BACK to the grid. If your solar panels generate more power than your house uses in a day, the excess power is fed into your local power grid, and the power company pays you for that excess power.
In Missouri, your excess power will be credited to your next bill at the minimum of the utility’s “avoided cost rate.” That rate is, basically, how much it would have cost the utility company to burn more coal and make electricity at one of their plants, and the rate is pretty cheap.
You pay, let’s say, $.12 per kWh for power, but they’ll pay you $.03 per kWh for the excess you send back. Also, if you do not use all your credit after 12 months, it reverts to the power company without any compensation.
When you add solar panels to your home in Columbia, you are absolutely exempt from any property tax increases! That means that your new home solar array could add up to $15,000 in value for your home, and you won’t pay a single dime more for the added value!
