Fabio – VELUX Skylights – Columbia, MO

Fabio initially contacted us to learn more about a solar electric system and was excited about the opportunity. Dogwood Solar completed a Solar Site Analysis at his home in Columbia, MO to see if solar was a good option. After modeling the impact of shade from his large oak trees, it turned out solar production would be impacted enough that he would rather wait and buy into a community solar project. While on his roof talking about what we found, he noticed his acrylic [plastic] skylight was showing signs of age and had a few hairline cracks. We talked about how Dogwood Solar replaces skylights, why we only use Velux Skylights and what it means to be a Velux 5-Star installer. After presenting him with a proposal, he chose to hire Dogwood Solar to replace his skylight.

Nancy – VELUX Sun Tunnel – Columbia MO

We met Nancy at one of the Earth Day events in Columbia, MO. We bring pictures of our work as well as product displays. After seeing what we could do with natural light, we were invited in to brighten her master bath.

Weldon & Jo Ann – VELUX Sun Tunnels – Columbia MO

Weldon and Jo Ann love natural light. Their home had nice windows but the light did not reach into the core of their house, specifically into their dining room. The second location was the master bath, it was really dark because there were no windows! Their condo on a golf course had a shared fire wall between the units which prevent windows. A VELUX Sun Tunnel is typically the best solution for this challenge.

Dave L – Solar Electric – Columbia, MO


Dave was interested in using part of a field to harvest another type of crop, electricity! We installed the solar panels for this installation just outside of Columbia, MO. Utilizing the existing electric service to the barn helped in keeping the cost low. An added benefit of ground mount solar installation is the space underneath. Dave plans to use it for shade for a picnic table as well as store firewood and his lawn tractor.

Peter & Lea – VELUX Sun Tunnels – Columbia MO

Lea loves natural light. She has remodeled their home several times over the years and each time brought more light in through vertical windows. All three of their bathrooms were still dark and could not have windows added due to their location in the home. We added a 14″ sun tunnel in the master bathroom and a 10″ sun tunnel in each of the other full bathrooms. The impact was dramatic and she can now “winter” her plants in the upstairs bathroom with the abundant natural light.

Paul C – Solar Electric – Columbia, MO


These pictures are from phase one of an install we did for Paul on his detached garage in the Old Southwest area of Columbia, MO. His garage had a south facing roof with limited shading from mature trees. Although this offset a significant portion of his electric use, he hired us again in 2015 to add an additional 1.1 kW to get him a Near Zero electric bill on an average annual basis.

Tony – VELUX Sun Tunnels – Columbia MO

Tony saw one of our “before & after” pictures from another sun tunnel installation in Columbia, MO and instantly knew the dark spaces in his house that needed help. The kid’s bathroom had no windows and was in need of more light. The kitchen had windows on the west but much of the light reaching the kitchen was blocked due to a nice screened porch off the kitchen. The use of a sun tunnel brought the light to the spaces that needed it most.

Benton Elementary – Solar Electric – Columbia, MO



Working with their Partner in Education, UPS; Benton Elementary applied for and received a grant they used to add a solar electric system to the school. The panels are visible from an interior stairwell. The Enphase Enlighten portal allows the students to see near real-time data from the array and this information is used to help with the STEM program.

System details:
Array Capacity: 1.5 kWdc

Denny & Nell – Solar Electric – Jefferson City,MO

We were thrilled to work with Denny & Nell installing their solar panels in Jefferson City, MO. Performance of the system was important to the owner as he had completed a lot of research and was well in tune with cutting edge technology and how it benefits him at home. Aesthetics were important for both the owner as well as their neighbors in this country club community. Dogwood Solar ensures the system is professionally installed, looks great, and our installation process does not inconvenience you or your neighbors. We’re ready to do the same for you.
