Ameren’s Smart Energy Plan in Missouri includes $28 million in solar rebates. Homes and businesses can apply for the rebates starting on Nov. 1, 2018, with rebates for qualifying customers available on Jan. 1, 2019

This exciting news also comes when solar is at lowest cost ever! Federal tax credits provide 30 percent with full depreciation during the first year. This brings cost reductions up to 47 percent! Add another great opportunity since Ameren offers a $.050/W incentive, which knocks off another 25 percent or so of the cost.

Commercial clients can purchase a 25-year power plant for up to 72 percent off its retail cost. The payback period for this investment is less than five years. Residential clients can expect cost reductions around 55 percent with system paybacks under 10 years.

There’s no better time than now to reach out to your IFMA St. Louis Energy Services partners to find out more about solar. Learn how smart energy can help your company’s bottom line while you also benefit the environment with a sustainable resource.
