Now is the perfect time to consider a solar system investment in Florida. While statewide legislation has been slow to get on board with solar power technology, things are changing, and solar is becoming a viable option for residents all across the Sunshine State.
What are the benefits of going solar in Florida?
Solar panel systems perform best in areas with plenty of sunlight, and given that Florida is rightfully called “the sunshine state,” it’s the perfect place for solar panels.
But in the wake of new legislation that now allows the largest solar companies like Sunrun and Vivint Solar to expand into the area, Florida’s place in the residential solar market has changed. It is now in the top three states in America for the installation of solar panels for homes.
Before this ruling, utility companies (who are largely coal-based) were the only entities allowed to sell electricity in the state. Now, projections call Florida the fastest-growing solar market in 2018. This is great from an environmental perspective, and it’s also great for residents who want to get on board with clean, inexpensive, and renewable energy in their homes.
With that in mind, let’s review the costs of solar in Florida for residents in several of the state’s biggest cities.
