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.

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.
