How Investing in Solar Power Saves Money for Jefferson City Homeowners
The average homeowner in Jefferson City spends around $108 on electricity a month. Imagine splitting that in half, or even paying zero some months on electricity, all while increasing the value of your property and being part of the environmental solution.
That’s what residential solar power can do for you. By harnessing the power of the sun and creating your own power source, you will save money over time, all while reaping the same returns on investment as a kitchen remodel.
According to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Missouri is one of the best places in the world for solar panel systems. Consider the following statistics:
- Missouri has more than 200 sunny days per year for an average of 0.5 to 5 kilowatt-hours per square meter per day. Missouri’s solar resources surpass Germany’s, which leads the world in solar energy production on less than 3 kilowatt-hours per square meter per day.
- The cost of electricity in Missouri has risen recently to 10 cents per kilowatt-hour, making the need for renewable energy sources more critical.
- A 25 cent-per-watt rebate will be available for systems that become operational after June 30, 2019, through December 31, 2023.
- Three of the leading utilities in Missouri provide a $500-per-kilowatt rebate, and a 26% federal tax credit means you get back nearly a third of your investment in less than a year.
- Solar increases home value by nearly $12,000, but your property tax stays the same.

Home Solar Panel Installation & the Cost of Going Solar
Understanding how solar panels operate is an essential step before deciding to install them on your Jefferson City home. Solar panels tap into the sun’s endless energy and convert it into electricity. Sunlight is available nearly every day, making it a reliable and cost-effective energy option.
Solar panels use photovoltaic cells to allow tiny particles of light, known as photons, to free the electrons from atoms to capture and convert solar energy. This process produces an electric flow. The solar panel system will then alter the current, so it will run as DC electricity or an alternating current to use it safely in your home. Converting light into energy in this way will allow you to lower your energy bills and truly own your power.
What does the solar panel installation process look like?
- Design & Engineer: Our design department will create custom blueprints for your solar system.
- Apply & Approve: We will apply for your net metering approval and any permits required by your city or county.
- Install: After approvals are received, we will work around your schedule to conveniently install your system.
- Energize: We will submit all final documentation to your utility provider on your behalf. The timing of this step varies, depending on your utility company.
- Monitoring: When your system is energized, we will assist you with setting up your system monitoring.
What’s the average cost?
The average cost for installing solar panels in Missouri is $14,300 for a 5-kilowatt system. The price per watt is an average of $2.86, and the payback period is just over 11 and a half years.
Residential Solar Batteries & Backup Generators
Solar batteries provide the opportunity to protect your home and family from outages, as well as utility rate increases. You can also help offset overnight usage with a solar battery system. Solar batteries offer peace of mind in three critical ways:
- They can offset increases and demand charges from the utility by using your batteries during peak loads.
- In case of power outages, batteries can provide the backup power you and your family need to live in comfort while the rest of the neighborhood is without.
- Use your batteries at night and reduce or eliminate the need to draw power from the utility company.
Never worry about losing power again. With a Generac backup generator, you and your family will live comfortably when the power goes out. We offer multiple sizes of generators to meet the demand needs you require. We deliver peace of mind anytime there is an outage through critical load coverage all the way up to whole-home coverage.
Earn Additional Money Through Solar Credit
When you utilize solar panels in Jefferson City, you may end up in a situation in which you have additional electricity created through the system that you don’t need. When that happens, you can credit the remaining electricity back to the solar grid. This can help you earn back money from your solar panels, along with cutting electrical costs.
With solar panels, you don’t have to worry about running out of energy. It’s always there, waiting for you to use. You may even have some extra, increasing your return on investment.
