Florida residents who choose to install a solar energy system on their homes can take advantage of the net metering program. Net metering is a billing arrangement that allows you to receive credit on your electricity bill for any surplus solar energy you generate and send back to the grid.
By participating in net metering, you not only become a self-sufficient provider of clean energy but also contribute to the wider adoption of solar power in your local community. Moreover, you receive compensation for the excess energy you contribute.
The specifics of net metering can vary depending on the state and utility company. Ask us if you qualify!
Property Tax Exemption – 100% through 2024
Installing solar panels on your home increases its value up to 20 times your annual energy bill savings. We don’t think you should be penalized for your sustainable decision and many state legislators agree! Currently, new solar installations will be subject to no additional property taxes based on their assessed value.
No Sales Tax on Solar
Since July 1997, solar energy systems have been exempt from Florida’s sales and use tax. In May 2005, the exemption was made permanent upon the enactment of H.B. 805. This exemption applies to solar hot water, solar space heaters, photovoltaic systems, solar pool heating and all associated components. The Florida Solar Energy Center periodically revises the list of equipment and requisite hardware considered to be a solar energy system.
