Homeowners and business owners in western Missouri will have a potential supplement to grid energy, as POWERHOME SOLAR is expanding its presence in the Show-Me-State by opening a sales and installation office in the Kansas City area.
POWERHOME SOLAR plans to hire up to 100 employees in the coming months to fill warehouse, installation and sales positions. Walk-in interviews for installers, warehouse, electricians and CDL driver personnel will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Independence (19677 E. Jackson Dr.) on Feb. 23-24 from 9 a.m.– 4 p.m. No prior experience for installers is necessary as the company offers on-the-job training. The company’s new installation office will be in Lee’s Summit (4251 NE Port Dr.), with the sales office opening planned for April. These new offices join the company’s existing location in suburban St. Louis.
Overcome high electric bills in Missouri by going solar
Missouri residents pay over $115 per electric bill on average, per 2019 data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, putting the state in the top half of the country among those with highest electric bills. Solar panels can be financed (in some cases, for roughly the same cost as your electric bill), and once the financing ends, so does your payment for solar, allowing customers to “own their power.”
“By opening a second office location in Missouri, POWERHOME SOLAR is bringing renewable energy jobs to the Kansas City market, and it’s bringing clean energy to our growing customer base that has discovered their appetite for solar energy,” said CEO Jayson Waller. “We love how this gives us greater coverage across the state.”
Not only can investing in solar energy potentially increase residential property value, current tax credits reinforce that solar energy is a sound decision. Congress recently renewed a federal solar tax credit of up to 26 percent on newly-installed solar systems through 2021 and 2022. Missouri also supports net metering, which allows consumers to sell their excess energy back to participating utility companies at retail rates.
POWERHOME SOLAR’s rapid growth continues
POWERHOME SOLAR’s expansion in Missouri is its second new office opening of 2021, with an opening in Fort Wayne, Indiana being announced earlier in February. The company employs more than 1,600 employees across its 11-state footprint and is ranked No. 255 on the 2020 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America – the third time in four years that the company has made the top 300 of this prestigious list. Also, the company is ranked as the No. 7 residential installer in the U.S., per Solar Power World’s 2020 rankings.
