Missouri Solar Incentives

There are a number of solar incentives available in Missouri to help offset the cost of going solar. These include:

  • The Federal Solar Tax Credit

    This credit allows homeowners to deduct 30% of the cost of the solar panel system from their federal taxes.

  • Net Metering

    This credits you for any excess energy that your system produces and is sent back to the utility company.

  • Property Tax Exemptions

    In Missouri, residential and commercial properties can exclude the added property value of solar panels from their overall property evaluation.


  1. Do solar panels work on cloudy days?

    Solar panels are designed to capture both direct and indirect sunlight and convert it into electricity, so yes — they will still work even when it’s not sunny outside.

  2. Do you need to clean solar panels?

    You don’t need to clean them often. If there is dirt, debris, leaves or bird droppings on your panels, a quick rinse with a hose is all you need. However, you should check on your solar panels every few months to ensure that they are functioning at their optimal level, as dirt and debris can impact performance.

  3. How do solar panels reduce my energy bill?

    As your solar panels generate electricity, your home uses that solar power instead of the electricity provided by your utility company. Since your meter isn’t running, you save on your electricity bills.

    Additionally, if your panels produce more energy than you need or use, you can choose to “sell” it back to your utility company (essentially crediting your account). Alternatively, you can add solar battery backup to your system and store extra energy for later use.

    All of this creates a system that allows you to use your solar system to the fullest and save on your energy costs.

  4. How long do solar panels take to pay for themselves?

    The average payback period for solar panels is between 5 to 10 years. This payback period will vary depending on the size of your system, the amount of sunlight that hits your panels, and the electricity rates in your area.

  5. Do solar panels work during a power outage?

    If you have a backup battery system, your solar panels will continue to provide electricity even when the grid is down.

  6. How long do solar panels last?

    Solar panels are built to last for many years — up to 25 years or more. And, because they have no moving parts, they require very little maintenance over their lifetime.

  7. Can hail damage solar panels?

    Solar panels are designed to withstand hail storms, but if the hail is large enough, it can crack or break the panel. However, most solar panels come with a warranty that will cover the cost of replacement if they are damaged by hail.

  8. How much does it cost to install solar panels?

    The cost of installing solar panels varies depending on the size and type of system you need, as well as the specific circumstances of your home. However, with the federal solar tax credit and other incentives, the cost of going solar is often much less than you might think. To get a more accurate estimate of how much it would cost to install solar panels on your property, contact Brda Electric today for a consultation.

"I have several rental properties and I have found that it is very hard to find good electricians at a reasonable price. Not only was Brda reasonable, but they did a beautiful job and did it all very quickly! They were also very respectful of my homes and did not make a mess for me to have to come back and clean up later! 5 Star service"
