How does the 26% federal solar tax credit work?
If you pay federal income taxes, 26% of your solar systems cost can be claimed as a deduction to your federal tax liability. Remember, when filling out the paperwork that the credit is for 26% of the system cost after claiming other incentives.
Are solar panels worth it in Missouri?
Solar panels have fallen in price by more than 80% in the last ten years. In 2020 they also remain subsidized by the 26% federal tax credit and the net metering law, making them an excellent investment. They offer a return well above the long term average return from both the share market and also property investment.
Another way to look at this question is the levelized amount you will pay for each kWh of power you will use over the next 25 years with and without solar panels
Does Missouri Offer Net metering?
Missouri utilities are required to offer net metering to their customers. When your home solar system produces more electricity than you use in a given billing period, you will receive a credit for each excess kilowatt-hour (kWh) of energy you send to the grid – these credits will be applied to your next bill.
However, Missouri only requires excess generation to be credited at the utility’s avoided cost rate, which is less than the retail rate.
While receiving credits equal to the retail rate would offer greater savings on your electric bill, getting credited at the avoided cost rate still provides some savings, which is better than none
