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.

Our solar installation has been up for about four months now. Our latest Evergy bill was $7.40.Thank you to Astrawatt for having patience with my many, many questions. The professionalism of your Sales Rep, Rhody, your Manager, Project Manager, your Electricians, and your Installers was top notch. We tried to work with four companies before settling on Astrawatt, at a time were everyone and their cousin is trying to get into the solar gold rush. It truly came down to Astrawatt and only one other reputable company. The only feedback I might have is making it clearer how the inverters would produce versus the peak power of the panels and nominal conditions. Also, for weeks after the install, some screws, washers, and cables blew off the roof, but that's because it was ungodly windy on my install days. I'm sure the crew did everything they could to keep the site organized. Everything is working fine and I was impressed with how considerate and tidy the install crew was during that phase. I'll recommend people to Astrawatt for sure, and I'd encourage them to be patient with the process and to trust the team. We're very satisfied customers.

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+

Missouri Solar Incentives and Tax Credits
Federal Solar Tax Credit
The Investment Tax Credit (ITC), also called 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. If you’ve already installed your solar system in 2022, your tax credit has been increased from 26% to 30% and you can take advantage of the increased tax savings.
Net Metering in Missouri
Net Metering is when your utility company monitors how much energy your home’s solar system produces and how much energy you consume. If your home’s solar system generates a surplus of energy, you will receive a credit from your utility company for that surplus energy.
Homeowners in some states receive full retail rate credit for the amount of surplus energy you send back into the grid. In Missouri, you receive credits at an avoided cost rate for the amount of surplus energy you generate.
Avoided cost rate is the amount it would have cost your utility company to burn coal or gas at one of its plants to generate electricity. Avoided cost rate is going to be less than a full retail credit, but as a Missouri homeowner you still receive credit for the excess energy your home’s solar system generates.
The state of Missouri requires all utility companies in the state to offer net metering to customers with solar power systems up to 100kW. You receive a credit on your monthly utility bill at the minimum of that utility company’s avoided cost rate.
Missouri Property Tax Exemptions for Solar Homeowners
Installing solar panels to your home will increase your home’s value by several thousand dollars. This is due to the substantial energy savings you will receive over the life of your solar power system.
All homeowners in Missouri are exempt from additional property taxes due to installing solar panels on their homes. Missouri does this to encourage homeowners in their state to take advantage of the cost savings from going solar.
Missouri Solar Rebates
Homeowners in the Kansas City metro area can take advantage of solar rebate programs that their local utility companies provide.
Evergy Missouri Solar Rebates
Evergy provides solar rebates for their customers in the state of Missouri. Solar rebates are available for residential systems up to 25 kW located in Evergy’s Missouri territories.
If you are an Evergy customer in Missouri and want to learn more about their solar rebate program, you can apply on their website.
