The sunshine state is ranked as one of the top states for going solar! With an abundance of sunlight and sunny days, Florida offers solar system owners the chance to maximum energy savings.
Going solar is great for the environment! By adding solar to your home, you produce clean, renewable energy for you and your family. Traditional power is generated by burning fossil fuels. When fossil fuels are burnt, they release carbon into the atmosphere. Carbon emissions are the leading cause of climate change. By decreasing your dependence on fossil fuels and the power grid, you make a big impact on the environment!
Less dependence on the power grid also means less money spent on energy! Energy costs rise year after year in the United States. Adding solar significantly decreases or even eliminates your electric bill! Pay a fixed monthly payment for your system and know exactly what to expect from your bills each month. Unlike other states, the sun shines all year long in Florida so the savings potential is endless!
Net metering helps maximize your savings! Any excess energy produced by your panels is sent back to the electric gird in exchange for a credit with your utility company. You can use these credits when your panels don’t produce as much energy as you need.
State and Federal Incentives
Increase the value of your home without increasing your property taxes with solar! Florida offers a property tax exemption on the value of the panels so that you don’t pay more. They also offer a sales tax exemption on new solar energy systems! In addition to the incentives that Florida offers, the federal government offers a 26% tax credit off of the total system cost for homeowners that make the switch.
