Solar power in Kansas has been growing in recent years due to new technological improvements and a variety of regulatory actions and financial incentives.
It is estimated that 41.7% of electricity in Kansas could be provided by 12,500 MW of rooftop solar panels.
In 2015, IKEA installed the largest solar array in the state, 730 kW on the roof of its store in Merriam. In 2011, Kansas's largest solar array, 118 kW, was the rooftop installation at Peeper Ranch in Lenexa. Its output is available online.
When you install your solar system, 30% of your project expenses apply toward a credit to offset any taxes you owe that year. This federal tax credit is a major incentive to go solar, but it is being phased out by 2022.
Most people are eligible to claim this credit (you must owe federal taxes to be eligible).
