"Show Me" the Rebate!

Missouri Solar Rebate Information for Empire Electric Customers

St. Louis, MO, the Show Me State

Missouri is known as the "Show Me State," which may have started in 1899 when Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver stated, "I'm from Missouri and you've got to show me."

Effective May 16, 2015, Empire Electric began offering rebates for Missouri customers for qualifying solar installations in accordance with the Missouri Renewable Energy Standard and Empire's Solar Rebate Rider approved by the Missouri Public Service Commission (MPSC).

Rebates are available on a first-come, first-served basis determined by the application postmark date and availability guidelines listed below.

Empire District Electric Company is currently accepting solar rebate applications pursuant to its Solar Rebate Rider, tariff sheets 23-23h, and rebate payments are available pursuant to law and Empire's tariff. Empire has not filed with the MoPSC a sixty-day notice of reaching its annual retail rate impact limit pursuant to RSMo. Section 393.1030 - so rebates are still available!

Customers must submit Missouri Solar Electric Rebate Application with all required documentation to:

    The Empire District Electric Company
    PO Box 127
    Joplin MO 64802
