Project Description:

A Solar Energy Specialist from Missouri Solar Solutions performed a solar analysis on the home and was able to professionally advise the home on a solar panel system that will address their energy needs.  We advise the homeowner on the cost and return on investment, the technology involved and the installation process of the system. We made sure all of Zac and Laura‚Äôs questions were answered.

A 20 panel roof mount array was designed and installed. The 5.22 kW solar array was installed in December of 2018. Zac and Laura saw their average electric bill decrease by 95%!!

On top of the monthly energy savings Zac and Laura were able to take advantage of the 30% Federal Tax Credit and local utility rebate. They received a utility rebate of $2,160!
