Here are some 5 star reviews from our customers on Google.
Highly recommend Astrawatt for solar panel installation in the Kanas City area. Prior to starting the process, I read many on line horror stories with other national installers about pushy sales process, delays in installation, incorrect paperwork submission, and project managers ghosting customers. My experience with Astrawatt was the farthest from those experiences and was outstanding. As they only recommend the best equipment brands and models, may not be as cheap as some other companies but receive a superior product since this is a 25 year investment. I received proposals from several other local installation companies as well. I had a focus on a local company that had a positive BBB rating, did the sales, project management, installation and service with no sub-contractors while having been in business for an extended period. Astrawatt fit those requirements, and their education first approach in the initial consultation showed their customer focus. At no time did my sales consultant Reid use any high pressure sales tactics, ensuring all my questions were answered and I was comfortable with my selection even, if I did not select them. Once contract was signed, Megan the assigned project manager was very responsive, providing routine updates on the process and quickly answering all my many questions. All applications to the city and Evergy occurred in a timely and complete fashion, resulting in the installation being scheduled and performed slightly ahead of schedule. The installation crew was very professional, completing the installation in 2 days as scheduled. Post installation inspection approval process was slightly delayed due to an overly picky city inspector (required updated engineering plans and resubmission for 1 panel that was re-oriented during install due to an obstruction). Astrawatt quickly updated the plans and resubmitted to the city which were approved and final inspection passed as quickly as the city's process allowed. I hope not to move ever again, but if I did I would use Astrawatt again on my next solar install.

We selected AstraWatt for solar panels installation after interviewing 4 companies. Rhody showed a lot of professionalism and detailed explanation like no one in other companies. He was patient with a lot of questions we had and offered very good deal. After we signed up, process was taken by Megan and she handheld the project feeding us with updates on City, Evergy approvals and providing constant communication. Since we expanded our project, Keith (Founder and CEO) got involved and was very helpful offering very good guidance. I cannot say anything, but Astrawatt is a company to go if you consider solar panels for your house/business. Since they are managing so many projects and solar industry is booming be patient if you don’t have answer on email within 24 hours. It's worth the wait to have assurance your project will be taken care of by very professional company. A+

Arizona Solar Incentives, Tax Credits and Tax Exemptions
Federal Solar Tax Credit
The Investment Tax Credit (ITC), also known as the federal solar tax credit, helps you reduce the cost of your solar energy system. You can deduct 30% of the cost of your solar energy system from your federal income taxes. There is no cap on the value of your tax credit and it applies to both residential and commercial systems.
The federal solar tax credit was recently increased to 30% and its timeline has been extended. If you install a solar PV system between now and 2032 you will receive a 30% tax credit.
You can save thousands of dollar in upfront cost with the federal solar tax credit and there are many solar incentives and tax exemptions available to homeowners who live in Arizona
Arizona Residential Solar Tax Credit
The Arizona Residential Solar Tax Credit is a 25% state tax credit for the cost of your solar panels for your home in Arizona. The value of the state credit is up to $1,000 that you can take off your state income taxes in the year you have your system installed.
Arizona Solar Equipment Sales Tax Exemption
Solar panels and equipment are exempt from all state sales taxes in Arizona. You are not charged any sales taxes on the purchase of your home’s solar panels and equipment.
Arizona Energy Equipment Property Tax Exemption
The state of Arizona encourages homeowners like you to install solar for their homes which is why the state offers the Energy Equipment Property Tax Exemption. You will not have to pay additional property taxes on the value you are adding to your home by installing solar panels.
Your home’s property value increases due to the amount of money that solar panels reduces your electricity bills. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) found that your home’s value increases by $20 for every $1 you save on your electricity bills by installing solar panels
For example, if your home’s solar energy system reduces your energy bills by $1,000 every year, your home’s value can increase by $20,000.
You will not have to pay additional property tax on the increased value of your home due to installing solar panels for your home.
Arizona Net Billing
Arizona does not offer net metering programs, but Arizona utility companies are required to offer net billing programs. Net billing is when your home’s solar panels produce excess electricity and that excess electricity is sent back to the grid.
Your utility company will then purchase your excess solar electricity at an “excess generation credit rate.” Your utility company will then pay you back in the form of a credit on your utility bill for the excess electricity they purchase from your home’s solar system.
The amount of credit you receive will vary depending on your utility company and the size of your home’s system. Our consultants can help answer any questions you have about net billing.
DSIRE Incentives Database - Arizona
The Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE) is a comprehensive database that Arizona residents can use to search for and find solar energy incentives in your local area and across the entire state.
