Darren Bent - Boone County, MO
We spoke to Show Me Star Energy about our current electric consumption. After a no pressure consultation over the phone with my husband and I we decided to go with our 8 KW solar system. Installation was a breeze and hassle free, the first month after installation we saw savings. We can monitor our system from our mobile devices while at work or vacation. We are very happy with our system and Show Me Star Energy.
Sarah Lesberry - Audrain County, MO
Our farm was build in the 1950s, that consumes a sizable amount of energy each month. With the help of our solar panels and solar hot water heater we are getting around 65% efficiently. I’ve been able to make huge cuts to my monthly bill! I love no maintenance and easy monitoring.
The Johnsons - Boone County, MO
Installing the 40 KW solar system for our grain bins was a great decision! We’ve managed to offset most of our electric needs for many generations. I am looking forward to enjoying the extra $2,000 per year of savings and generations of renewable energy.
