The short answer is yes, solar is now more affordable than ever.
Depending on whether you live in Missouri or Illinois, incentives can differ. Ameren Missouri offers a solar rebate for Missouri customers, and Illinois has a Solar Renewable Energy Credit program. For Illinois homeowners the incentives can reduce the costs by 60% after the incentives apply.
This dollar-for-dollar credit against your tax liability will take 26% off the total cost of your solar installation. Available through 2022, then it drops to 22%.
We offer financing through Clean Energy Credit Union, which can help you go solar for only $500 as a down payment. It can be easily built into the proposal we create for you and the process is fully integrated with ours to make financing easy.
Generally monthly payments for your solar array are at or less than your electric bill cost, so for a while you are swapping bills, but then it pays itself off. Every array’s payback period is different, but our team can calculate it for you.
