Homes In Florida Have Enough Sun Exposure for a Productive Solar System

Having enough sunlight is one of the most obvious benefits of home solar in Florida, but it’s not for every home. Should you have a home with a meager power bill, then solar probably will not be cost-effective. It’s possible to benefit if the cost of a solar system is low enough, but the benefits are greater the more power you use. A good standard is if your bills averages are $120 or more a month.

Naturally, if a home has a great deal of tree coverage, it can get costly trimming or removing trees for solar to be effective. But solar can be installed in any sun-exposed areas on the majority of properties and be productive. All these different methods really do require some help from an expert. So it’s imperative to get it right from the beginning.

All Homes Have a Monthly Power Bill to Offset The Cost of Solar

Because every home has a power bill, homeowners can use that money toward solar and ultimately own their own power company. Of course, it’s nice to offset the cost of solar using the power bill money to pay for it, but additional savings are available.

The federal ITC tax credit gives homeowners in Florida an automatic 26% percent tax credit thru 2022. Learn more about the Federal ITC Tax Credit that applies to solar Florida Solar Tax Credit 2022.

Homeowners are producing lower-cost power with solar than power companies. This is because the power companies have to lease or buy land and build platforms for the panels. Homeowners don’t have any of these additional expenses. Power companies then have to mark up the cost of the power produced from solar. This is important information to give us an insight into how power companies are going to pass those costs in the future on to the customer.
