Are solar panels worth it in Florida?
A lot of people ask us: Is it worth it going solar in Florida?
Like many states in the US, the short answer is yes. We believe it is simply from a cost savings analysis. When you look at the long term savings over 20+ years, it becomes very clear that paying money to your electric utility company for power rather than producing your own clean solar energy compares to being a renter versus being a homeowner.
There has been a huge boom in solar panel installations recently. The reason is homeowners are becoming aware of the huge savings that solar energy offers. When you combine the incentives currently available in Florida coupled with the advances in technology that have dramatically decreased the cost of solar over the last 10 years, it has become the most advantageous time to make the switch to solar.
