Solar potential in the United States

Solar power in Missouri is capable of generating 21% of the electricity used in Missouri from rooftop solar panels.[1]

Net metering is available only during a billing period. Excess generation is credited at avoided cost rate, and lost if any remains after a year,[2] giving the state a B rating.[3]

Ikea is installing a 1.28-MW solar array on its St. Louis store which will be the largest rooftop installation in the state. It is due to be completed in fall 2015.[4]
