Missouri Private Solar Credit

Net Metering - Customer Owned Generation

 

Ameren Missouri solar rebate funds are no longer available for new applicants. However, if you submitted an application in December 2013 and are in the rebate commitment queue, you will find detailed information below. 


The 2008 Proposition C Missouri Solar Rebate funds are fully subscribed to the $91.9 million funding level. There currently are no cash rebates for new Missouri Net Metering applications available through Ameren Missouri. Net Metering benefits remain available for all renewable generation of 100 kW or less.

  • The $0.50 per watt solar rebate is in effect as of July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2019. You are only eligible to receive the $0.50 per watt solar rebate if:


    • You received a rebate commitment letter from Ameren Missouri
    • Your solar installation is fully installed and completed within one year of the date on your solar rebate commitment letter

  • The deadline for submitting Completion Requirements paperwork to be eligible for the $1.00 per watt solar rebate was June 30, 2016 for customers whose applications were received by Ameren December 31, 2013, and were approved for installation and the solar rebate.

Net metering (effective 12/22/2013)
    

A customer who has received a solar rebate commitment letter is eligible for the $0.50 per watt solar rebate in effect as of July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2019 and must meet all installation and final documentation requirements listed below. To receive the rebate, these requirements must be completed within one year of the date on your solar rebate commitment letter. 


  1. The customer has completed the installation of all equipment, and
  2. The following items have been provided to Ameren Missouri:  
  • Section E has been completed and signed by a Licensed Missouri Electrician or Engineer
  • The "System Installation Date" of Section H is completed (if not eligible for rebate, this is not required)
  • Section F has been signed by the Ameren Missouri customer of record 
  • The local inspection authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) has approved the installation/wiring (if applicable) 
  • Copies of detailed receipts/invoices with purchase date circled (if not eligible for rebate, this is not required)
  • Photo(s) of completed system (if not eligible for rebate, this is not required)
  • Taxpayer Information Form must be completed and attached (if not eligible for rebate, this is not required)
   

PLEASE NOTE:  You have one year from the rebate commitment date (if applicable) or design approval date (if no rebate available) to install the PV system. The approved Missouri Net Metering application expires after 12 months. 

 
Failure to satisfy Completion Requirements within 12 months of rebate commitment will result in a solar rebate of $0.

   
When the customer has satisfactorily completed all installation and final documentation requirements, Ameren Missouri will install a bi-directional meter. If any deficiencies are found that prevent the bi-directional meter from being installed and those deficiencies are not corrected within one year of the solar rebate commitment letter, the customer's solar rebate may be denied.

The system becomes operational upon installation of the bi-directional meter and the solar rebate payment will be made within 30 days of that date.

   
   
Status of Solar Rebate Reservation Queue
     
At this time, Ameren Missouri's solar rebate program is fully subscribed to the $91.9 million funding level. Ameren Missouri does not anticipate making any additional funding available although solar rebate payments will not be suspended until the funding level has been fully paid.
   
A reservation and queue system for solar rebates has been established based on the order that applications were received. Find the latest information regarding the Solar Rebate Queue Status online.
   
Applications that have not received a written rebate commitment have been placed in the queue and may only receive a rebate commitment if rebate funds become available due to cancellation or expirations.
  
For more detail on the solar rebate and reservation and queue system, refer to Rider SR - Solar Rebate tariff.
  
 
Revising a Net Metering Application Eligible for Rebate
     
There may be times when a net metering application needs to be revised. Revisions might result from clarifications requested by Ameren Missouri during the approval process or as a result of unforeseen problems that occur either with procuring the equipment specified or with physical construction constraints. Net metering and solar rebate applications can be revised to reflect changes without causing the application to be rejected and the customer losing their Qualification Date except:
  
- The system capacity cannot exceed the maximum allowable sizing
- The application cannot be transferred to a different developer*             
   
In cases where the capacity of the solar system increases, the rebate will be determined based on the original system capacity that was submitted.

   
Any changes in the net metering design will need to be submitted to and approved by Ameren Missouri. 

*If Your Solar Installer Goes Out of Business or Releases Your Installation Agreement (applies only if you are eligible for rebate)
