Famous for its sunshine, the Sunshine State of Florida continues to be one of the top states in America when it comes to residential solar installations. With 250 sunny days and over 2,900 sunny hours each year, the state ranks 4th for its ample solar resources compared to other U.S. states. Though current estimates suggest only a few thousand homes have taken advantage, Google's Project Sunroof shows that 92% must install solar panels before reaching the full Solar potential-  an equal to 158 million MWh AC per year. A truly remarkable feat!

4 Reasons Why It’s Worth Going Solar in Florida


Add battery storage to your solar system so you can rely on clean energy and disconnect from the grid during outages.



Reduce your carbon footprint while harnessing the power of the sun. Solar panels take advantage of this by providing consistent, reliable power.



Solar power has many advantages over fossil fuels as a renewable energy source. It is a more viable option for your home, community, and the environment.



Due to the increasing popularity of solar-powered homes, they stand out, resulting in immense profits as they sell faster and at a higher value in the national real estate market.

Available Solar Incentives in Florida

Incentives help lower the cost of your solar energy system. Those available in Florida include:

  • Solar Tax Credit: Most solar energy installations are eligible for the Residential Clean Energy Credit, previously called the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC). Eligible homeowners can deduct up to 30% of their solar power system’s costs from their total tax liability for the year of installation.

  • State Property Tax Exemption: Solar has been shown to increase the value of your home. Florida exempts this addition from your property taxes, meaning you don’t pay extra taxes because you got solar panels.

  • Local Utility Rebates: Some local electric cooperatives and municipal utilities may offer solar rebate programs to offset the cost of your renewable energy system even further.

  • Sales Tax Exemption: Solar is exempt from Florida’s sales tax.
