Kansas City — Hello, Sunshine!

RisingSun Solar is proud to call Kansas City Home. Our headquarters, located in Westport, is a lively hub of dedicated employees that make up the largest and most experienced in-house crew of solar installers in the area. It is also home to hundreds of beautiful parks and boulevards that share cleaner air thanks to the unbelievable wave of solar adopters like yourself.

Kansas City solar panels do far more than simply help reduce emissions. They also help save homeowners day one by cutting down electric bills and protecting them from rising electricity rates. We have officially reached grid parity in our area, which simply means the cost of solar power is the same or less as a conventional form of energy, like your utility provider. With incentives such as the 26% Federal Solar Tax Credit, there’s no better time to make the switch to solar. RisingSun Solar’s 25 year warranties and performance guarantee give you peace of mind that you're in good hands.

26% Federal Solar Tax Credit

Property Tax Exemption

26% Federal Solar Tax Credit

This tax credit is available to all residents and business owners who want to make the switch to renewable energy and install solar panels. Offered by the federal government, it allows people to receive 26% of the total cost of their solar panels back in tax credits. That means that if your solar panels cost $9,000, you’d receive $2,340 back in tax credits. That would reduce the cost of your solar panels down top $6,660. And if you don’t use all your tax credits back in the first year, the remainder will just roll right over to the next.

This fantastic incentive won’t be available forever, though. Starting January 1st, 2021, the tax credit is reduced to 22% of the total cost. While that’s still pretty good, 26% is better. And in 2022, it’s completely unavailable for residential solar panel systems. That means that if you want to install Kansas City solar panels for the best deal, you’ll need to act quickly to take advantage of the 26% Federal Solar Tax Credit.

Property Tax Exemption for Kansas City Solar Panels

Renewable energy sources such as solar power are growing in popularity all over, including Kansas City. And because the city’s leadership knows just how big it’s going to get in the future, they’ve made solar panels in Kansas City exempt from property taxes.

When you install a solar panel system, that system will add value to your home. Normally you would have to pay additional property taxes for this extra value. But not in Kansas City! Here you can install your solar panels and enjoy your extra value without having to pay anything extra!

Net Metering for Kansas City Solar Panels

Net metering is a wonderful incentive available to help you get the most out of your new solar panel system. When your solar energy system produces more electricity than your home or business needs, the excess energy will be sent to your utility company. They will then credit your account for the electricity you sent to the grid. This allows you to maximize your savings, and help your utility company utilize greener, cleaner electricity.

Currently, Net Metering Is Permitted In Both Kansas City & Missouri

The whole process from start to finish was really organized. Rising Sun is very prompt, courteous and everything was laid out for me with much detail. Rhody and Desmond were always available to answer my questions and I had a lot! Megan stayed in contact with us through the whole process and we always knew what was going on. The installation crew was always on time for the work day and was polite and courteous and cleaned up after themselves every day. The emphase app is extremely easy to use and I love checking it everyday to see how much energy the panels are producing. I also love that is shows real time what our panels are producing compared to how much energy we are using. The panels are great quality and look really nice on our roof. We've recommended RisingSun to all of our friends and neighbors. Top Notch Company we are so glad we were able to work with them!
