Enphase Energy’s Growth Prospects in Missouri

To meet clean energy and decarbonization goals, Missouri is increasingly taking measures to encourage the development of solar projects. In this context, it is imperative to mention that apart from the federal Investment Tax Credit, Missouri offers additional incentives and rebates for solar installations as well as solar property tax exemption.

This undoubtedly highlights the growing importance of solar-based energy in the region and subsequently the abounding opportunities for the battery storage market.

Moreover, per the U.S. Energy Storage Monitor report from the Energy Storage Association and Wood Mackenzie, the residential battery capacity in Missouri is projected to witness nearly 14-fold growth by the end of 2026.

Such a solid growth projection boasts tremendous opportunitiesfor solar companies like Enphase Energy to further expand in the market with innovative products.

Such upbeat prospects stand to benefit companies like ENPH to further solidify their presence in the market and strategically grow through their product offerings. Considering the boom in the battery solar market, several solar majors have started to foray into the lucrative battery solar market.
