Solar Array

The sun's rays hit your solar panels and generate DC electricity



An inverter changes this DC electricity to AC and it's ready for use in your home


Excess Solar Electricity

Anytime you produce more than you use, the excess is shared with your utility


Net Metering Credits

In exchange, your utility gives you a credit to use when the sun is down



You can even go online to track your solar energy production

Don't Just Take Our Word for It...

StraightUp Solar made the entire process an easy turn-key operation: from getting the building permit, to working with Ameren, to the actual installation, the process was much simpler than I expected, and so far the electricity production has been at or above the “theoretical” capacity on a regular basis. I’ve been very pleased with the system so far.

StraightUp Solar went the extra mile to create a solution that was just perfect for me: maximum energy production, aesthetically pleasing, web-accessible – all at an affordable price.

We decided to go solar because it’s a win/win. We had just moved into a new house and asked ourselves “are there any investments we need to make sooner than later?” We just so happen to have a great roof and clearance, so it made lots of sense.


They kept me informed every step of the way. Even when Ameren was slow getting out to replace my meter StraightUp had told me what to expect and the timeframes involved.
