Kansas Solar

Kansas is a great place to switch to Home Solar for many reasons. The impressive net metering program, the sunny climate, and the increasing utility rates. By switching to solar in Kansas many customers were able to eliminate their utility bill and replace it with a solar payment that will never go up. This allows them to lock in their costs and not have to worry about the future of rising energy costs. Kansas also has amazing solar warranties of 25+ years so you have peace of mind about your investment in solar.

Sunshine in Kansas

A great reason to go Solar in Kansas is that Kansas is pretty sunny. On average Kansas has 230 sunny days every year, with the capital of Topeka receiving 211 days of direct sunlight while the western city of Goodland has a remarkable 260 days of sun each year. The amount of sunshine that your system receives is the biggest factor to think about when you want to produce enough energy to power your home. Kansas is a very solar friendly state, so most homeowners shouldn’t have to worry too much about not producing enough energy.

Trees and Shade in Kansas

The forested areas in Kansas make up about 10% of the state’s land mass, so depending on where you live, there may be trees surrounding your property. Trees can have a huge impact on whether or not your home will be a good fit for solar panels. If there are tall trees and large branches close to your roof, they may block the sunlight coming in. Most of the forested areas in Kansas are on private property so it is important to access your home to see if there are any trees covering your rooftop. If you live in a city or a newer neighborhood in Kansas, you may have minimal landscaping so it wouldn’t be an issue. Many homeowners are able to fully benefit from going solar by trimming the trees that are causing direct shade to the rooftop of the home. Remember, every home in Kansas is different!

Kansas Net Metering & Power Credits

Kansas power companies such as Westar, they have a program in place called Net Metering which makes home solar affordable and easy.

Sunlight changes from day to day, so that means that the amount of energy that your system produces will vary from day to day as well. Net metering is a way to balance out the electricity that your system generates throughout the year, so you don’t have to pay for power that you have already produced. On months where there is a lot of sunlight and your panels produce more kilowatt hours than you need, then this surplus of electricity will flow back into the grid for someone else to use. This excess power you contribute gives you “credits” and these credits are applied to offset your power consumption in future months when you use more power than your solar array produces.

The great thing about Kansas is that Kansas’s Net Metering program returns the credits that your system has generated at a retail rate. This means that you’ll be able to take and use a very similar amount of power from the grid that you contributed in excess to the grid – and you don’t lose a large amount of funds in the power-transfer process!

Kansas Loves Solar Power

Kansas is a great place to go solar because of the Renewable Energy Property Tax Exemption. Kansas has a law that keeps your local property taxes from going up when you invest in a solar energy system, which means you can increase the value of your home without paying additional taxes to do so. The state also has an incredible net metering program available to residents that we discussed earlier. The net metering program allows any surplus of energy accrued during the month to be carried over to the next month. This can even be done annually but it is less common.

The solar installation process in Kansas is no different than in any other state. Many homeowners choose to stay connected to the grid so that they can take advantage of the great net metering program as opposed to having an off-grid system. In Kansas, solar can be installed year round, however, we recommend having a winter or spring installation date which ensures your system is up and running by the time summer comes around.
