Nationwide Home Solar Power Contractors and Information
One visit to the Kansas Energy Information Network and the glaring need for more solar incentives in The Sunflower State jumps out at you. The first two full sentences read: "Currently, Kansas does not have net metering," and "Currently, Kansas does not have a renewable portfolio standard." This does not bode well for solar-hungry Kansas residents. It seems that legislation regarding renewable energy, including net metering, has made several fleeting appearances in the state legislature, but with very little substantial results. Kansas did have a grant program in place for renewable energy systems, but it relied on federal funding...the feds withdrew their support and, alas, grants are not available at this time.
In fact, Kansas customers will be hard pressed to find even a utility rebate program in their state. Nonetheless, Kansas certainly has potential for solar energy, with no shortage of open spaces and sunshine. Much, however, needs to be done. If you are a Kansas homeowner looking for an avenue into solar power, you'll have to start with a phone call to your state legislators to get some solar bills back into the mix.
In the meantime, you do have one positive solar promotion at your fingertips. It comes in the form of a Renewable Energy Property Tax Exemption, which excludes 100 percent of equipment used in solar thermal electric and PV systems from state property taxes. It is a small but important step and, before you get too discouraged, when combined with significant energy savings, can still save a whole heap of money over the years.

I have used Bob and his crew for several jobs. He handles himself very professionally.
We had tried a few other contractors only to be left dissatisfied. Network earned our confidence.
