Florida is known as “The Sunshine State” due to the large amount of sunshine we get which explains why Florida ranks as the third best state in the country for solar energy.

Jacksonville residents often get solar panels for their homes to take advantage of our state’s plentiful sunshine and save on their electricity bills. Florida’s numerous solar incentives and tax exemptions also makes solar panels an affordable solution to rising energy costs.

Astrawatt installed our solar panels. At this point, we are awaiting Evergy‘s blessing to make them active. The guys with Astrawatt were helpful, friendly, and communicative.

The entire solar contract and install experience was great! Working with Matt on the sales team, he went above and beyond to support any issues I had and working with us to find the best financing option for my wife and I. He also explained the hardware and equipment that was going to be used and provided brochures for everything! He wasn't push, was very fun to talk to, not a pressuring sales person, and had some great "dad jokes". Their formal proposal had milestones with dates and activities that were clear and helped us understand all of the milestones of the project. Megan on the project management team always kept us up to date on changes to the permitting, the status of project milestones, and city approvals of the project. Jamie did a great job of letting us know the who, what, when, where of the install. He was present the first day of the install and attended the post install inspection with the local city official. The install team did a great job! The panels are square to the roof, they were all polite, easy to work with, and very helpful when answering questions. They did a pretty good job of picking up any pieces of wire or scrap, they all wore their appropriate PPE, and they were extremely fast! The install was initially quoted at 2 days and they were a little quicker than that. Again, I highly recommend Astrawatt for any solar installs! The people, the service, and the equipment are all top of the line!

Very impressed with the team that put up my residential solar panels, from sales to installation. Rhody in sales had to put in extra time working with the historical preservation office, (I basically did nothing) and he got it figured out. Justin and install team were professional and very neat. Lucky you, Astrawatt, to have such amazing employees!

Astrawatt Solar just finished installing our panels last week and we couldn't be more excited! Everything has been super easy, clear, and friendly from the first contact, all the way through installation. They were always very prompt and understanding with any questions or concerns that we may have had. I have already recommended them to friends and family.

Seldom have I experienced such professional service than I've had with Astrawatt Solar. Astrawatt did a great job installing my panels and quickly responded and resolved the few minor issues I experienced. The salesman, Bryan, was exceptional, very responsive, highly knowledgeable and always willing to thoroughly answer my questions and take care of my concerns. He frequently would record screencasts of himself answering questions and explaining things in detail, then he would email them to me. The financing options were especially confusing but Bryan recorded a video explaining them all in detail which I then shared with my husband. This was very helpful and a great business/selling practice. I felt that he was honest and up-front and didn't try to sell me a bigger system than I needed, unlike other solar companies I talked to. Some companies just tried to cram as many panels on my roof as they could which would have generated more power than I needed thus just causing me extra expense and to give all my extra power away to the utility company--ya, they would pay me a mere .02 cents a Kw, but that doesn't come close to covering the cost of the extra panels. Astrawatt calculated the number of panels I would need to maximize my investment and meet my energy needs based off of my past usage; not so many that I would generate more power than I needed, and not so few that I would be pulling from the grid more than I should. I appreciate them looking out for my interests and doing what was best for me. I highly recommend them for anyone looking to add solar to their homes.

Florida Solar Incentives, Tax Credits and Tax Exemptions

Federal Solar Tax Credit

The Investment Tax Credit (ITC), also called the federal solar tax credit, helps reduce the cost of your solar energy system. You can deduct 30% of the cost of your solar energy system from your federal income taxes. There is no cap on the value of your tax credit and it applies to both residential and commercial systems.

The federal solar tax credit was recently increased to 30% and its timeline has been extended. If you install a solar PV system between now and 2032 you will receive a 30% tax credit.

The federal solar tax credit helps you save thousands of dollars in upfront costs, in addition to many solar incentives and tax exemptions for the state of Florida

Florida Property Tax Exemption

Your home’s property value can increase when you install solar panels, since solar panels reduce your monthly electricity bills. In Florida, your property taxes will not go up because your home’s property value increased due to getting solar panels.

A long-term study from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) found that when homeowners installed solar panels for their home, their home’s property value increased by $20 for every $1 they save each year on electricity bills. For example, if your home’s solar energy system reduces your annual electricity bills by $700 each year, your home’s value can increase by $14,000.

The state of Florida provides a 100% property tax exemption for residential solar panels and battery storage devices due to the state’s Property Tax Exclusion for Residential Renewable Energy Property.

Your home’s value will increase, but you will not have to pay additional taxes.

Florida Sales Tax Exemption

Along with state property tax exemptions, solar panels and equipment are exempt from state sales taxes. The 6% state sales tax will not be charged for your home’s new solar energy system.

Florida Net Metering

Net Metering is when your utility company monitors how much energy your home’s solar system produces and how much energy you consume. In Florida, if you generate energy through your home’s solar panels you can sell that energy back to your utility company as credits.

Your credits can be applied to your energy bills or be paid out to you.

If your home’s solar system generates a surplus of energy, you will receive a credit from your utility company for that surplus energy.

People who live in the Jacksonville area can take advantage of the net metering programs offered by their local utility companies.

Jacksonville Net Metering Programs - Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA)

Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA) customers who generate excess electricity with their home’s solar energy system receive an energy credit that will offset your monthly utility bill.

Your energy credits accrue during the calendar year. If you have a remaining balance of energy credits at the end of the calendar year, then Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA) will pay you for the amount of your remaining energy credits. The amount for your energy credits is based on JEA’s current net metering policy.

Duke Energy’s net metering program allows Orlando area homeowners to offset their monthly electricity bills based on the amount of energy their home’s solar panel system generates.

If you participate in Duke Energy’s net metering program, you will receive a bill credit from Duke Energy each month for the excess energy your home’s system generates.

Jacksonville Net Metering - Clay Electric Cooperative

Clay Electric Cooperative’s net metering program buys back the excess electricity generated by your home’s solar energy system. The excess electricity your home’s solar panels generate is purchased at a wholesale rate and shows as a credit on your next monthly electricity bill.

Jacksonville Net Metering - Florida Power & Light

Florida Power & Light offers Jacksonville residents a solar net metering program that is based on the size of your home’s solar energy system.

Florida Power & Light’s goal is to offset all or part of their customer’s energy usage with their net metering program.

DSIRE Incentives Database - Florida

The Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE) is a comprehensive database that Florida residents can use to search for and find solar energy incentives in Tennessee and across the entire country.
