Going Solar in Florida: 6 Reasons You Will Not Regret It

Posted on May 3, 2023 in by Brigitte Sinoradzki

Wait until you hear how you have been paying for a subscription that increases its price annually while a more efficient, less expensive alternative is out there.

We are referring to your current energy bill. Solar energy is more efficient and less expensive than the nonrenewable energy you are paying for now.

In this blog, Bison Roofing and Solar will provide statistics that will make Florida residents wonder why you have not gone solar sooner!

Going Solar in FloridaGoing Solar in Florida, You Will Save Almost $2,000 Annually. 

Florida residents pay more than the national average on their monthly energy bills.

We can attribute some of our high energy bills to the year-round warm weather and the air conditioning it takes to keep our houses cool. As of this month, the average electricity bill in Florida is $164.51 earning the Sunshine State a ranking of #6 in a list of 10 states with the highest electricity bill.

This shows that Florida still needs to take full advantage of the great potential of solar energy and its low costs. The delay in transitioning to solar might be because Florida residents may not realize they willingly hand over almost $2,000 a year.

CNET advises Floridians that “if you purchase a solar panel system that covers your energy needs, you could save up to $1,933.68 annually.”

But, when you consider the trend that as energy prices increase, the cost of solar stays the same, with solar, you are actually ensuring your annual savings will be greater year after year.

CNET explains, “However, energy prices tend to increase year over year, with the average electricity rate in Florida increasing 19.2% from August 2021 to August 2022. Solar customers could continue to experience cost savings with solar.”

You Can Increase Your Property Value Without Increasing Your Property Taxes

In the state of Florida, residents are exempt from paying increased property taxes for installing solar panels.

Installing solar panels to your home increases your home’s value. In most cases, the increase in your home’s value also increases your property tax – not when you go solar in the Sunshine State!

You Will Save an Additional 6% on Solar Installation in Florida.

In the Sunshine State, you save an additional 6% on your solar panel installation, as this type of purchase is exempt from the state’s sales and use tax.

Solar BudgetYou Can Return the Energy You Do Not Use for Going Solar in Florida

Florida’s net metering programs allow you to send the extra solar energy your panels generated back to the power grid. In return for your excess energy, you will receive credits on your electricity bills each month.

Solar Energy Fits Any Budget 

You can purchase your solar panels outright, or finance your installation costs, sometimes with the option of $0 down. No matter what plan you choose, it is more than likely that your finance payment will beat your current energy bill.
