Life of the System

Our Tier-1, premium solar panels are durable and likely protected by your existing insurance policy. Panels are secured close to your roof for minimal change to your building’s appearance. You’ll have a 10-year workmanship warranty from Dogwood Solar, as well as manufacturer warranties for workmanship and power production.

Tax Credit & Incentives

Business owners are eligible for a 26% federal tax credit. This credit is currently set to decrease 24% in 2023 and to 10% in 2024. All solar property is eligible for 5-year MACRS depreciation. Certain locations are eligible for a 25% USDA REAP Grant. Consult a tax professional to discuss options. Utility companies may offer rebates to businesses investing in solar energy. We can help you find those incentives. Additionally, grants may be available to non-profit organizations that cannot capture the federal tax credit.

Current Incentives include:

  • Solar Rebate – $375-625 per kilowatt off the cost of your system for City of Columbia Water & Light customers
  • Low-Interest Loan – City of Columbia electric customers may apply for a low-interest loan to pay for solar systems
  • Solar Rebate – $250 per kilowatt off the cost of your system for Ameren Electric customers

Where would the solar panels go on my commercial building?

Ideally, the solar panels will face South (since we’re located in the Northern hemisphere). Panels can be installed facing East or West, but we do not install solar panels facing North. We’d be happy to look at your property’s location and roof lines to make a recommendation.

How will it look once it's done?

We take great care and pride in making sure our installations look as great as they perform. Take a look at our portfolio to see progress pictures as well as completed installs. Feel free to ask us for references!

Can hail damage the panels?

While extreme weather is a risk factor, the panels we use are rated for Missouri’s climate. If a panel does become damaged by hail, it is covered by most commercial property policies. We recommend you work with your insurance agent to make sure your individual policy covers your new investment.

How big of a system do I need?

The size of your system is designed according to your business’s energy consumption. There’s no one-size-fits-all formula, so we offer free solar site analysis plans and reports to design your solar system to suit your needs! Request a solar site analysis here.
