Why Install Solar Panels?
Yes, you will first need to make the investment in solar panels when you purchase them and get them installed. But as Florida homeowners will attest, this is indeed an investment that pays off since you can lower your monthly electric bill by being in a grid-tied system.
You will be billed only for what your solar panels don’t cover, and in fact, you can be paid for the extra energy your panels produce.
With that said, it does generally take anywhere from 6 to 8 years for most people to break even when it comes to their solar bills. Your panels should last at least 30 to 35 years, so that’s many years of savings after you break even.
You might not have plans to move immediately, especially now that you’ve got solar panels, but you will increase your home’s value by installing them. Then, when you want to sell your home, you’ll be able to get a higher value for your home. Potential homebuyers are often attracted to properties with solar panels, due to rising electricity costs. You’ll find that homes with solar panels installed can sell faster.
Beyond the actual energy saving aspect of solar panels, there are incentives offered by the state of Florida for switching to solar power. You will receive a 7 percent sales tax exemption on the installation, and a property tax exemption for the value of the system. Also, a Federal 26 percent solar tax credit that every resident will have access to if they qualify for a tax credit. Please check with your tax preparer to verify your individual tax situation.
Solar panels are great for the environment. You’ll be able to limit your emissions and reduce the overall need for fossil fuels. No noise or smoke comes from your solar panel system, and if you’re producing extra electricity that gets sent through the grid-tied system, you’re lowering emissions for the whole neighborhood too.
Solar Pool Heating
Using solar panels to heat your pool comes with many advantages. Our panels are finely crafted and designed to withstand weather and mildew. They are designed to be long lasting to keep your pool at a decent temperature most of the year.
Our solar panels feature individual tubes to help your pool pump and heat your pool water in an efficient manner. Our low-maintenance panels also encourage rapid evaporation to prevent the growth of bacteria and mildew.
Rest assured that the mounting system does minimal damage to your roof and keeps panels secure through any wind. In addition, with flexible mounting, your panels can withstand any shifting or change in your roof.
Benefits of Solar Pool Heating
When you use solar panels to heat your pool, you receive essentially free energy. The sun’s heat can be transferred easily with the use of solar panels. Additionally, the costs of installing and using solar panels to heat your pool over time is lower than using any other type of heating method.
Solar panels will keep your pool at a consistent temperature, usually in the mid-80s. To help keep your pool heated, especially when you use a solar blanket or cover in the winter months. The use of solar blankets further helps reduce costs and keep your pool heated without extra energy.
Heating your pool makes it enjoyable for all ages and encourages longer usage more often. Rather than sit on the edge of the pool or refrain from diving in, heating your pool is great for encouraging everyone to enjoy it.
Solar Hot Water
Similar to heating your pool with solar energy, using solar panels to give your home hot water can also save you money. Solar panels can easily heat water of any kind, including hot water for inside your home.
By working hand in hand with traditional water heaters, solar panels can provide warm water throughout your entire home while keeping costs low. Solar panels come in different materials to be as efficient as possible at heating the water. They can preheat water so that you can have warm or even hot water at any given moment.
Our panels can be set up to store pre-heated water within your home. This allows you to have free solar hot water delivered to your sinks or shower.
Benefits of Solar Hot Water
In addition to saving money and being environmentally friendly, using solar panels to heat your hot water inside your home can help in many different ways.
Living in Florida means that your home is exposed to the sun’s energy most of the year. There’s a high insolation rate throughout the state, which means we receive a large amount of the sun’s energy. Using solar panels to heat your hot water is easier than most other places with such an exceptionally high insolation rate.
Taking advantage of a high insolation rate means also taking advantage of the money-saving opportunities it grants. While northern states can’t use solar energy as easily, Florida can. You’ll see a quick return on how much you save after you install solar panels, particularly for homes that use lots of hot water throughout their days.
When it comes to saving money, you may have doubts at first. Solar panels are a considerable investment, but they pay themselves off relatively quickly. In general, using solar panels to heat your hot water will pay off within the first four to eight years.
Solar panels provide a reliable supply of hot water. You don’t have to worry about power outages as solar panels will continue to work as long as they have access to the sun’s energy. The renewable energy from the sun provides a consistent and reliable supply, so when prices go up, or fossil fuel eventually runs out, your home continues to have hot water. Also, solar water heaters qualify for the 26% federal tax credit.
Solar energy is a clean energy source. As Florida has unique climates and landscapes, it’s vital to protect natural wildlife. The use of solar panels and clean energy helps encourage that and can keep water cleaner as well.
The use of solar energy to power your home’s electricity is gaining in popularity. Solar electricity is particularly popular in Florida as we receive so much sun year round. With the use of solar panels, you’re able to capture the sun’s energy and convert it for your personal use.
Solar electricity provides power to your home so long as your solar panels are exposed to the sun. It’s a more stable electricity system as you’re no longer dependent upon your local electric grid. While your solar panels are connected to the grid, you are not reliant on the energy to power your home. It’s more like a backup system.
Many solar electric systems use batteries to store and save unused power. So in case your panels can’t produce enough energy or a storm blocks the sun’s energy for several days, you’ll still have a free backup. Although solar batteries can be expensive and require maintenance, they can keep your electricity free for longer.
Benefits of Solar Electric
Like solar pool heating and solar hot water, there are many benefits that come from using solar electricity. It’s an excellent investment and helps the environment. Unlike many other home investments you may make, solar electricity starts to pay itself off the very moment your solar panels are installed.
With net metering in place, you never have to worry about what will happen if your solar panels can’t produce enough electricity. Your home remains connected to the local power grid and can use electricity from a utility company when needed. Fortunately, this goes both ways.
On days where your solar panels produce more electricity than you use, you can redirect the unused energy into the power grid. In return, utility companies will offer credits that you can use when you need electricity from them.
Florida has some fantastic incentives for homes that switch to solar electricity. Net metering isn’t the only significant benefit that you’ll see.
The benefits of switching to solar electricity are worth it when you look at how much money you’ll save in the long run. With your solar panels, you’re unaffected by rising electricity costs, and you’ll receive the majority of your electricity for free—no more worrying about an increase in your electric bill.
Of course, the use of solar electricity also helps save the planet. By using clean energy, you’ll reduce your home’s carbon footprint and help protect the natural wildlife in Florida from fossil fuels and coal.
