Are There Incentives To Switch To Solar?

The short answer is yes! Though homeowners will see lower electricity bills instantly with their solar system, there are a number of incentives when you switch to solar. Super Solar’s team of energy experts is here to help break it down for you.

It all starts at home

Your home energy consumption will play the largest role in determining what incentives you are eligible for. This is why Super Solar performs a full home energy audit before quoting a solar installation price. We want to first help you find and address any energy “leaks” in your home that will reduce your overall energy consumption and solar needs. After this diagnostic evaluation, we can get you the best solar solutions that will result in lowering or eliminating your monthly electric bill. With this strong foundation set, cost saving incentives can be built upon it.

Net metering, a billing process that credits solar energy system owners for the electricity they add to the grid, is a great incentive to take advantage of. If your solar system generates more electricity than your home requires, the excess energy will go back to the grid, and you’ll be issued a credit on your next utility bill.

Currently, Tampa Electric Company (TECO), Duke Energy, and Florida Power & Light (FPL) all offer utility net metering programs in Florida.

The sunshine state

At this time, Floridians do not have to pay sales or property taxes for residential solar panels. With Florida’s Solar and CHP sales tax exemption, you can save 6% of what you would otherwise owe in taxes.

Florida’s Property Tax Abatement for Renewable Energy is the cherry on top of this solar sundae. Though the solar system will increase your property value, this abatement means that you will not pay additional property tax for your installation.
