Florida seems to like its renewable energy policy like it likes its traffic around Miami: stop and go. Some of the laws here are A-OK, maybe even perfect! Others are, well … nonexistent. With no Renewables Portfolio Standard, middling net metering and interconnection rules, and no statewide solar power rebates or tax credit program, the Sunshine State is a dark place for solar energy policy.
Florida’s legislation on renewable energy is lacking, and the utility companies are fighting tooth and nail against positive change in the state. In fact, this year, citizens have organized a constitutional amendment to allow for third-party solar ownership (something 45 other states allow), and it's being challenged by the utility companies, who came up with their own amendment meant to confuse Floridians into voting against low-cost home solar. It's bonkers.
It’s time to get Tallahassee back on the job, and kick-starting those statewide programs again! Still, becasue Florida is such a sunny state, there is hope for homeowners. Solar still produces tons of electricity and can be a good investment. Read below to find out how to take advantage where and when you can.

Your guide to going solar in Florida
We've designed this page to be a complete guide to the complicated and sometimes confusing process of installing solar panels on a home in Florida. Since there's a lot of important information to consider, we've separated the page into sections to help you find what you are looking for. If you find this page useful, please share it with someone who might also find it interesting!
The Solar Strategy section is all about the various financial options you have in Florida. We've created a tool that asks you a few questions about what you hope to get out of a solar purchase and recommends whether you should pursue a solar lease, loan, or outright purchase. Then, we give you a detailed picture of how each could work for you.
The Policy Information section contains all of our latest research on the rules set by the state legislature and public utilities commission that determines how easy it is to go solar in Florida. These policies and rules govern everything from renewable energy mandates to whether you get paid retail or wholesale rates for the extra energy your system produces, and can have a huge effect on the viability of solar.
Finally, the Solar Incentives section lists all of the available financial benefits available to homeowners who go solar. This section includes information about money-back rebates and grants, tax credits, and tax exemptions. If you're looking for what Florida is doing to make solar more affordable for its citizens, you'll find it here.

Your Solar Strategy in Florida
Figuring out the best way to go solar in Florida can be a little daunting. From loans and leases to power-purchase agreements, there are a lot of options out there. To help you pick the one that might be best, we've created the handy decision tool below.
We'll ask you a few simple questions about you and your home. Once you're done, we'll recommend a good option. Further down this page, we provide cost estimates and example return-on-investment calculations for all the various options:
Compare the Return of Different Solar Investments in Florida
The chart above shows the 25-year returns for an investment in solar whether you choose to purchase a system with cash or pay over time with a loan. Since Florida doesn't allow homeowners to get solar through a third-party agreement like a lease or Power Purchase Agreement, we included two different sizes of solar loans—one for people with a lot of equity, and one for people with just a little.
As you can see, the purchase option leads to the highest dollar-amount returns over time, but it also requires a big up-front investment. If you can get a solar loan or take a home equity line of credit (HELOC), though, your payments over 15 years will be only a little more than your savings, and you'll still come out thousands ahead in the end.
Read on to find out more about each option.
Net Present Value of Solar in Florida
“Net Present What?!” Don’t panic, this isn’t an economics test. NPV is just a tool used to compare investments. Basically, it asks, “if you had X dollars to invest, which investment would get you the best return?” It relies on the idea that getting a return on your investment sooner is better than later, because you can reinvest your early profits and keep the gain train going.
We compare an investment in solar to a “what-if” investment in a Standard & Poor’s (S&P) 500 stock index fund, which has seen growth of about 7% per year over the past 25 years. We use the cost of solar in Florida and ask “how much better or worse (in 2017 dollars) is an investment in solar than stocks?” Here's what we found for the most popular ways of going solar in Florida:
The sunshine state doesn't do a lot to support home solar, but the good news is: that doesn't mean you can't still make solar a good investment. In fact, a solar loan in Florida can produce a return greater than the stock market, and paying cash for solar comes close. Here's some more about how we got these numbers above:
Solar Loan NPV: $2,376
As we’re fond of saying, taking a loan for solar is a no-brainer, because it’s like agreeing to pay over time for something that is also making you money, plus you get 30% of the loan value as a tax credit (cash in your pocket) after making payments for only 1 year. So if you can take advantage of that tax credit, you can make solar work for you in Florida! Your loan payments will exceed your savings for the life of the loan, but that big tax credit makes it all worth it. Read more about solar loans below
Solar Purchase NPV: -$737
A solar purchase in Florida has a small negative NPV because electricity prices here are so cheap. Even with all the sun we get, solar takes about 13 years to pay offf its cost, and the return you get after that can't compare to having more money to invest now. You're much better off with a solar loan, which allows you to pay over time for something that will also be saving you money. Read more about solar purchases below.
Buying Solar in Florida
An outright purchase used to be the only way to get solar, and it's still the option that provides the "biggest" financial returns. The reason we put "biggest" in quotes here is because it's technically true—with lower equipment costs and a tax credit, solar costs less than ever before, and a solar installation in Florida pays itself off in 13 years. But if you're interested in solar as an investment, taking a loan to pay for the system is a better option.
With a loan, you can make monthly payments instead of putting $16,250 down on a solar system, which means you save money on electricity as you pay down the cost of your panels. If you have equity in your home or can get a large loan with an interest rate of 5% or less, a loan is the option to go with. It's like being able to start a business that is sure to succeed, just by having a roof. Read about loans below.
If you've got cash and you prefer to pay up front, you'll have to plunk down $16,250, but a Federal tax break and energy savings will erase a bunch of that after just 1 year. Over 25 years, your system will have produced nearly $15,000 in income, after your system cost is paid back. The reason this works is that solar offsets your electricity costs—enough to save you $729 in year 1—and it just goes up from there. As the electric company raises rates, you save more and more, and more...
Here’s how the numbers pencil out for a Florida solar purchase with a 5-kW rooftop solar system:
- Installing a typical 5kW solar system should start at about $16,250. Don’t worry – even without state incentives, you can still knock a big chunk off the price right off the bat.
- Since the Feds calculate their incentive based on actual out of pocket costs, no state incentives means a bigger federal solar tax credit. Subtract $4,875 (30% of the costs) for a new price of $11,375.
- After the tax credit, subtract your first year’s energy savings, which we estimate to be about $729. That brings your cost after the first year to $10,646. That's 35% off the starting cost, in just one year!
- By the time your system pays itself back in year 13, you’ll be seeing over $1,000 per year in savings until the end of your system’s life.
- When all is said and done, our 25-year estimate shows a total net profit of $14,444.
- And don't forget... your home's value just increased by more than $19,000, too (your expected annual electricity savings over 20 years)!
- In addition to all that cash (and home value), you’ve created some green for the earth as well by not using electricity from fossil-fuels. In fact, the energy you’re not using has the carbon equivalent of planting 110 trees a year, every year your solar power system is humming.

Solar Loans in Florida
This is without a doubt the best option when it comes to percentage return on investment. That’s because it relies on using someone else’s money for the purchase price, which is paid back over time. The cost is similar to a new car loan, but because solar makes you money, it's a tremendous investment. One way to finance solar like this is a Home-Equity Line of Credit (HELOC), but solar loans at great rates are being offered by installers around the country. The chart above is our estimate for the average homeowner, so get a custom quote for a $0-down solar loan to get an accurate picture of how much solar can save you.
The reason a solar loan works so well is that you don’t have to put any money down, but you still get all of the incentives that go along with buying solar. You'll get the 30% federal tax credit and the energy bill savings will start right away. The bad news is your loan payments will be higher than those energy bill savings, so you'll end up spending about $59/month for solar in the first year. That difference will come down each year as electricity prices rise, but your system will keep on producing about the same amount of electricity.
Here’s how the numbers pencil out for a Florida solar purchase with a solar loan or HELOC:
- Installing a typical 5-kW solar system should start at about $16,250. That's how big your loan will need to be to cover it.
- The electricity you'll save in the first year of operation would have cost $729, but your loan payments will total $1,442, for a difference of $713, or about $59 per month.
- That's not so bad when you consider your tax savings for the year will be $4,875! You'll come out more than $4,150 ahead in year 1, which should help ease the burden of loan payments for a few years, at least.
- When your loan’s paid off in year 15, you’ll start see over $1,100 per year in savings until the end of your system’s life.
- For our 25-year estimate, you'll end up with $9,059 in profits.
- And the future is going to look a little brighter, since your system will mean green for the environment. It'll be like planting 110 trees every year!

Small Rooftop Systems in Florida
Let's say you don't have a ton of extra cash laying around, but you do have a bit of equity in your home. Can a solar investment work for you? YES!
You can own a small rooftop solar system by getting a loan or taking a home-equity line of credit (HELOC). Installers all over the ountry are now offering low-interest loans to finance a solar system. It works just like the above example, but without costing $18,000. Here's the factors we'll look at for this example:
- A 2-kW rooftop system that will cost around $7,800 installed.
- A solar loan or HELOC for $7,800 with a 10-year term at 4.5% interest.
Just like the big system, you don’t have to put any money down, but you still get all of the incentives that go along with buying solar. You'll get the 30% federal tax credit and the energy bill savings will start right away. Your loan payments will be about $79 per month while your energy bill savings will be about $24—a difference of just $55, which means for the cost of a couple cases of good beer, you can have solar panels on your roof that will save you big money over the long term.
Here’s how the numbers pencil out for a Florida solar purchase with a small rooftop solar system:
- Installing a typical 2-kW solar system should start at about $7,800. Your loan should be for this amount.
- The electricity you'll save in the first year of operation would have cost $292, while your loan payments will cost $. The yearly cost of the loan is basically like paying for a new smartphone—if a smartphone could make its own money.
- At the end of the year, the federal government will give you a 30% tax credit based on the cost of your system after the rebate. That's $2,340 that you won't owe this year. You can take the credit over two years if you don't owe $2,340 in federal taxes this year.
- After your loan’s paid off in year 10, you’ll start see at least $400 per year in savings until the end of your system’s life.
- For our 25-year estimate, you'll see a savings of almost $3,200 while only spending a little each year on loan payments.
- And don't forget... your home's value just increased by close to $7,600, too (your expected annual electricity savings over 20 years)!

Florida Solar Policy Information
Ever wonder why solar seems to be everywhere in some states, but not in others? We did too.
State legislatures and public utilities commissions can enact rules to make solar power accessible for everyone. Favorable rules explain why some of the cloudiest states—New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, are doing so well with solar, and yet some of those with the most natural solar resources—like Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida—are doing so poorly.
Below is important information about the public policy, rules, and economic reasons that affect your ability to go solar here in Florida:
A Renewables Portfolio Standard (“RPS”) requires utilities in the state to eventually source at least a certain percentage of their electricity from clean, renewable sources like solar panels.
An RPS would be critical to strong renewable energy policy in Florida. Utility companies aren't really all that gung-ho about you producing your own power. After all, it costs them money when you use less of their electricity. They also don’t naturally want to give you big payments for energy you're feeding back into the grid. The main reason the utilities would aid your transition to lower electric bills and offer you incentives to put solar on your roof would be if the state forces them to. Without an RPS, utilities have little incentive to help homeowners go solar.
So what’s going on in Florida? All those people, all that money, and no statewide RPS? We’re not just disappointed; frankly, we’re shocked. Props to JEA (formerly Jacksonville Electric Authority) for voluntarily opting into an agreement with some environmental organizations to produce 7.5% of its power from clean, renewable sources by 2015. Really, we meant that – but 7.5% in one of the state’s smaller cities is just a drop in the bucket.
What's an RPS? Your state legislature paves the way for strong solar energy incentives to flourish by setting standards for renewable energy generation within their territories. Those standards are called the state’s renewable portfolio standard (RPS). If utility companies do not meet these standards, they must pay alternative compliance fees directly to the state. Many utilities then determine the best ways to source their energy from renewable sources that are less expensive than this fee.
An RPS is a mandate that says "Hey utilities! Y'all now have to make a certain percentage of your electricity from renewable sources. If not, you'll have to pay us huge fines." The consequences are good, because utilities usually try to meet these RPS standards by creating solar power incentives for you, the homeowner. Read more about Renewable Portfolio Standards.
RPS solar carve out
Along with a strong RPS, some of the best solar states also require a specific percentage of the electricity generated in the state to come from solar panels specifically. It’s been shown to spur immediate and widespread adoption of solar energy, but not here in Florida.
What's a solar set aside? A solar set aside guarantees a specific portion of the overall renewable energy mix generated comes from the sun. For those states with progressive standards, high alternative compliance payments, and clear solar carve outs, the faster those areas become ripe for solar.
Some states have higher alternative compliance fees than others, and some states have more progressive alternative energy standards and deadlines than others do.
For instance, New Jersey has an overall RPS of 22.5% by the year 2021. That requires local utilities to source 22.5% of their energy mix from renewable sources by the year 2021. Pretty good. However, New Jersey also has a specific solar set aside of 4.1% by 2028. That’s the type of firm commitment which really gets the industry rolling forward. No wonder why New Jersey is one of the hottest solar markets right now!
Florida Electricity Prices
Florida pays an average of about 11 cents for a kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity. That’s about 2 cents cheaper than the national average. Cheap electricity rates mean you’re probably not feeling too much of a strain in your pocketbook... yet. Just don’t forget why electricity is so cheap.
That’s right, fossil fuels. Lots and lots of non-renewable, greenhouse gas-producing fossil fuels. When all those fossil fuels really start to bite us in the butt, or start to run low… or both… electricity rates are going to rise, and fast. When that happens you’re going to be really, really happy you switched early to all that efficient, clean solar power that will be in high demand.
In the meantime, solar power will still save you a chunk of change in Florida. We’ll go over just how much in a minute.
Why are electricity prices so important? Because that is what solar power is directly competing against. The cost to produce power with solar is relatively constant (of course how much sun hits your area has an effect), so if you are paying $0.40 per watt for power, then you make FOUR TIMES AS MUCH as the guy or girl paying $0.10 per watt electricity.
The caveat here is that if the $0.10 per watt person has a HUGE rebate, they may be better off than the $0.40 per watt person. Because of that, states without any renewable standards tend to be heavily reliant on cheap coal for electricity, and also have very low electricity prices. When electricity prices are artificially low, that hinders the ability of solar energy to achieve meaningful payback in the state.
Florida Net Metering
Net Metering requires your utility to monitor how much energy your solar power system produces and how much energy you actually consume, and make sure you get credit for the surplus.Florida’s Public Service Commission “PSC” set specific standards for net metering back in 2008. The PSC rules apply only to the state’s investor-owned utilities; the rules do not apply to electric cooperatives or municipal utilities. Municipal utilities and electric cooperatives are required to offer net metering, but specific standards are not set by law.
Assuming you’re a customer of an investor-owned utility (most of us), any net excess generation (NEG), i.e. any surplus energy, is carried forward as a credit at the full retail rate to your next bill for up to 12 months. At the end of a 12-month billing period, the utility pays you for any remaining NEG at an avoided-cost rate.
Florida’s really making a late comeback here, because not only is that just about the perfect net metering law, it looks like you won’t have any problems getting on the grid. Unlike most states, Florida has no set capacity limit, i.e., you won’t get blocked from hooking up to the grid for net metering just because some of your neighbors have already done so. Your small residential system also lacks any of the possible hurdles and red tape that we’ve seen in other states. Now that’s more like it, Florida!
What is net metering? Net metering is the billing arrangement where you can sell excess electricity back to your utility for equal the amount you are charged to consume it. The more customer friendly net metering policies, the higher the grade.
The grade here specifically reflects individual solar system capacity, caps on program capacity limits, restrictions on “rollover” of kWh from one month to the next (yep just like cell phone minutes), metering issues (like charges for new meters), Renewable Energy Credit (REC) ownership, eligible customers and technology (the more renewables the better), being able to aggregate meters across the property for net metering, and safe harbor provisions to protect customers from solar tariff changes.
Florida Interconnection Rules
Overall we gave Florida a mediocre grade on interconnection standards because of the requirements for a redundant external disconnect switch and the mandatory insurance requirements for larger solar systems. Don’t worry though! These problems shouldn’t apply to you and your single-home system. For all systems under 10kw, it should be smooth sailing to get connected to the grid and start raking in those net metering savings.
Interconnection rules are a little technical, but they basically allow you to “plug in” to the electric grid with solar panels on your roof. The more complex, out of date, or nonsensical the state rules are for plugging into the grid, the lower the grade.
Specifically, the grade reflects what technologies are eligible, individual system capacity, removing interconnection process complexity for smaller systems, interconnection timelines and charges, engineering charges, prohibiting the requirement of unnecessary external disconnects, certification, spot interconnection vs. wide area interconnection, technical screens, friendliness of legalese, insurance requirements, dispute resolution, and rule coverage.
Solar Incentives in Florida
Florida Solar Power Rebates
City of Longwood: 10% of costs up to $500
OK. It’s official. This is a trend. Florida has no statewide solar rebate program, and the few patchwork fill-ins from individual utility companies have closed. The statewide rebate program you may have heard of, Florida’s Solar Energy Systems Incentive Program, is sadly no longer taking new applicants.
There is one place that still offers solar rebates in Florida. The city of Longwood. There, you can get up to 10% of the costs of installation back as a rebate from the city. Sounds good, right? Not so fast... the rebate has a maximum of $500, so it's not nothing, but... well... the good news is you can take the $500 each year they offer it, but only if you keep making energy efficiency improvements that meet the city's criteria. Go to the city's site to read more.
How do solar rebates work? Similar to getting a rebate card from your local big box store for a dishwasher purchase, state legislatures also provide rebates for solar panel purchases to spur on investment and create new jobs. If you purchase the solar panel system yourself, you qualify for this free cash, which many times is a lump payment back to you. Some solar installers like to take this amount directly off the total installed price, and they'll handle the paperwork for you to make things a lot less complex.
The availability of state and utility rebates were sourced from the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Energy Efficiency. The better the rebates, the higher the grade.
Florida Solar Power Tax Credits
No State Income Tax
Since Florida doesn’t have any income tax, there aren’t any solar tax credits to redeem! Fortunately, local organizations like this are forming to help people like you. This group combines the Florida Solar Energy Industries Association, the Florida Alliance for Renewable Energy, and the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy; their goal is to highlight the benefits of solar and provide insight as to what can be changed to help this energy type thrive in the state of Florida. And hey, you still get the Federal government’s sweet 30% tax credit.
About state solar tax credits: State tax credits are not technically free money. However, they are 'credits' and not 'deductions' which means that if you have the tax appetite to take advantage of them, then they can be a 1-to-1 dollar amount off your taxes instead of a fraction of the cost of the system. So that means they can be an important factor to consider. In certain circumstances, state tax credits can provide a very powerful incentive for people to go solar.
(Keep in mind, we are not tax professionals and give no tax advice so please consult a professional before acting on anything we say related to taxes)
The availability of personal tax credits for solar energy were sourced from the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Energy Efficiency. The higher the tax credit amount, the higher the grade.
Solar Power Performance Payments
Orlando Utilities Commission: $0.05/kWh
Performance Payments are small payments for each kWh a solar system produces. In Florida, there is only one utility company that offers performance payments, but the payment they offer is pretty nice.
The Orlando Utilities Commission will pay customers to produce solar power at the rate of $0.05/kWh. That’s on top of crediting you the retail rate for electricity your system generates—they'll pay you for every kWh, whether you use it to power your home or not. The program runs for 5 years, with automatic renewal for another 5 year term at whatever rate is available.
It won't mean a ton of money each year, but it adds up over time. In our example, your performance payments will mean more $332 in your pocket for at least 5 years, and it actually reduces your system's payback time by a year.
Remember: under this program, the electricity output of your solar power system is used to power your home and you still get paid based on total output, so that couple hundred bucks really is free money – you don’t have to sacrifice any other benefits of your solar power system to collect it.
Sadly that’s the end of the available performance incentives for solar panels in Florida. Again, just a drop in the bucket. Some local utilities offer net metering for a flat price, which could mean a bit of a bonus for you. The best way to figure out whether your utility offers favorable rates is to connect with one of our Florida-based installers on the ground, who know the lay of the land when it comes to solar policy in your area.
Explanation of performance payments: Performance payments represent a big chunk of the financial rationale for going solar, and in many instances they make your decision a wise one. For certain states, if you’ve got solar panels on your roof, not only will you be cutting your electric bill down to size, but you'll be getting paid additional cash from your utility company. Pretty awesome, huh? Not only are you generating electricity for yourself, freezing your own popsicles with sun, and feeling like you’re doing something smart for your children or any of the other 4 reasons people go solar, but you are getting PAID!
Utility companies are paying people with solar panels on their roofs because their states say they have to, otherwise they will pay a fee. Therefore, the payment amount to homeowners is typically a little bit less than the amount they would be billed for by the state. For states with these alternative compliance fees, Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) exchanges have popped up. In the above chart, we outlined an estimate of yearly payments a homeowner might expect from the utility company for the SREC credits from their solar energy system.
Expected SREC payments were calculated by using the latest trade values in the SRECtrade database. The availability of feed-in tariffs were sourced from the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Energy Efficiency. The higher the expected monthly payments, the higher the grade.

Property Tax Exemption
Thank goodness Florida at least realizes that homes with solar are worth more than homes without, and the state has been willing to exempt that value from additional property taxes. Your home’s value increases as much as $20 for every 1 dollar of electricity you save in a year. Not paying taxes on that value is a sweet deal.
About solar property tax exemptions: Property tax exemption status is a pretty big factor when putting together your investment considerations. Many argue that solar power adds approximately 20 times your annual electricity bill savings (if you are owning the system and not leasing. Leasing still has a positive impact on the ability to sell your home though, in our opinion).
For many average-sized solar power systems on a house, that can mean $20,000 to your home value. (Edit April, 2014: Some companies, like Solar Mosaic, are starting to offer traditional style equity-based home loans for such a thing). An additional $20,000 in property tax basis in many states amounts to a big chunk of change owed back to the state. However, many states have complete exemptions from added taxes when you install solar on your home!
The availability of a property tax exemption for solar energy was also sourced from the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Energy Efficiency. The stronger the tax exemption, the higher the grade.
Sales Tax Exemption
Florida gets another rare “A” here. Home solar panel systems are free from state sales tax, saving you 6% or more, right off the bat. Baby steps, Florida. Baby steps.
What's the deal with solar power sales tax exemptions? When states give you a sales tax break on solar, we notice. You should too. State sales tax exemption status for the purchase of solar energy systems were sourced from the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Energy Efficiency. Sales tax exemptions, if present, were all 100%. A handful of states are completely exempt from sales tax regardless, and therefore received ‘A’ grades by default (OR, DE, MT, AK, and NH).

The consensus on Florida solar power rebates and incentives
Without a strong RPS or a statewide solar rebate program, Florida’s utilities have little incentive to help you get into solar. Despite the state’s abundance of sun, Florida’s government hasn’t yet seen the benefit of pushing for clean, renewable energy that will produce for years to come. But with a decent overall payback time of 10 years, there is still good reason for Floridians to get into solar. We give the state a C just for solar still being a good investment, even without the policy to help make it an amazing investment.
