  6. 6. What is fueling the growth  Great incentives (Missouri with the best incentives in the country right now)  Energy costs escalation  Solar module costs have plummeted in last 2 years (Cost have leveled out and we are seeing price increases due to the tariffs the US has imposed China)  Aesthetics improved  Massive growth in interest, mainstreaming across US Double digit increases from Ameren last 4 years, This year 14% and expected to continue over the next 5-10 years
  7. 7. Incentives 100% Installed Cost -30% Federal Tax Credit -35% Utility Rebate 0-10% SRECS Initial Cost (about 25%- 35%of Installed Cost) Recouped Over Time through energy savings & increased property resale value  Federal Tax Credit  30% of InstalledCost  MO State Utility Rebate  Amerenpays $2/watt,up to 25kW  Resultof PropC  SREC Program  2011 Rebate< 10kW Size, $100/1,000 kWh, 10 yearupfrontpayment (Funds exhaustedin May)  2012 Rebate< 10kWSize, $50/1,000 kWh, 10 yearupfrontpayment(Funds exhaustedin July)  2013 (Creditswill be earnedno value or upfrontpurchasefrom Amerendecided upon for 2013 yet)  Net Metering  Creditatretailcost for energyputback on grid
  8. 8. Money Leaving Missouri to Pay for Imported Coal $1.06B $27M $2M $10M $20M $14M Compared with other states, Missouri:  Is the most dependent on net imports as a share of total power use: 82%  Imported the 2nd largest amount in total net weight: 43.8 million tons  Spent the 6th most on net imports per person: $190  Spent the 7th most on net imports relative to gross state product: 0.48%  Spent the 10th most on net imports: $1.13 billion
  9. 9. Headquartered in Germany since 1951 and with more than 5,000 employees worldwide, Schüco is a world leader in aluminum, steel, PVC-U and energy-efficient solar technology. Schüco’s portfolio includes integrated solar electric, solar heating and racking for both residential and commercial applications. Providing the full spectrum of products needed for solar solutions, Schüco obtains planning support and know-how from engineering teams in both the photovoltaic and thermal transfer sectors. Schüco USA, with more than 110 employees and growing, has been successfully operating in the U.S. solar market for over three years with U.S. locations in Newington, CT and Union City, CA.
  10. 10. Schüco: Where Visions Become Reality. Every company has a vision. The Schüco vision is: protecting the earth’s resources and thereby protecting the blue planet. This vision is expressed in Energy3: Saving Energy – Generating Energy – Networking Energy: a model which is incorporated in all Schüco products. Schüco brings 60 years of experience to achieving the aim of a secure future. With innovative solutions in the fields of windows, façades, and solar products. And with a customer focus which has made the company the best-known and also the most reliable brand in the building industry. This also means that Schüco is a premium brand. A self-image that places the highest demands on its own work. In practice, this means creating energy-efficient solutions which are combined with clearly defined benefits: energy, security, comfort, and design. This means declaring a belief in values of excellence, innovation, partnership, and responsibility which are lived every day as the company philosophy.
  11. 11. Plus Sorting There is a difference With plus sorting, SolarWorld only delivers modules that are factory-tested to meet or exceed their name plate power rating. By delivering actual power, plus – sorting ensures that your system operates at top efficiency which results in maximum energy yield, year after year. LEADING THE WAY

Enphase sites are shown in orange, standard inverter sites in grey.
  18. 18. Maximum Performance Enphase Microverters are installed beneath the solar modules on the roof, and they convert the maximum power from each module into standard AC electricity. Enphase Microinverter  Worlds most efficient microinverter  Supports low-light and low-voltage operation  Innovative cabling for fast and easy installation
  19. 19. Simplified Networking The Envoy Communications Gateway monitors the health and performance of each microinverter and solar module, and it sends this information to the system owner and installer via the Internet Envoy Gateway  Plug & Play setup  Communicates over existing electrical wires  Connects to standard broadband router
  20. 20. Advanced Monitoring The Enlighten web-based software provides system owners and installers with detailed performance information and analytics about the solar system, as well as at-a-glance views and automated alerts.
