Why go solar in Orlando?

It’s probably no surprise to you that sunny Orlando has major solar potential. There are serious perks for installing rooftop solar on your home in the sunshine state.

First of all, by installing solar, you’ll be using your own clean power source instead of relying entirely on energy from the power grid. You’ll be part of the major change to clean energy sources that don’t pollute the air or soil and will never run out.

Most power grids still run on exhaustible fossil fuels, such as coal or natural gas. These resources don’t just pollute, they also rise in price constantly as they are used up and become more sparse.

Local Orlando solar incentives

Orlando net metering

In addition to saving money on your electricity bills, solar can also help you earn credit from your utility to lower your bill even more every month.

This is thanks to the Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC) net metering policies. Net metering means that when your solar panels have generated enough electricity to power your home, any extra power is not wasted.

Instead, it’s sent back to the power grid and you will be credited the full applicable retail rate on your next power bill.

In a sunny place like Orlando, you’re in the right place to earn major net metering credits.

Orlando PACE financing

Another advantage you have in Orlando is the City of Orlando PACE program. This is a program that allows homeowners to pay for solar through property taxes.

Of course, there are plenty of purchase and financing options available to you through Vivint Solar. But PACE financing is another possibility as you look into what solar payment structure works best for you.

In addition to the fact that you’re living in one of the sunniest states in the U.S. and will reap the maximum benefits of solar power to save money, there are actually more reasons why choosing solar is a great option.

More reasons why solar makes sense in Orlando

There are plenty of state incentives to help make Florida one of the top states taking advantage of solar power.

Florida property tax exemption

Usually, making additions and major improvements to your home can increase your home’s value and bolster your property taxes. However, Florida offers homeowners who decide to install rooftop solar a property tax exemption.

This means that installing solar on your home will not make your property taxes shoot up at all based on the solar panel install.

Solar and CHP sales tax exemption

Lastly, when you switch to solar in Orlando, you won’t owe any sales tax on the solar energy system.

So you’ll save monthly on electricity bills, you’ll likely earn net metering credits from your utility company (thanks to that golden Orlando sun) and you won’t pay any extra sales or property taxes for going solar.

Solar power in Orlando, Florida

Orlando Utilities Commission value every kWh exported to their grid at the retail power rate under their net metering policy. Solar in Florida produces about 30% more compared to northern states making net metering a lot more profitable. After covering your bill credit is carried forward to later months still at retail value. At the end of the yearly billing cycle remaining credit is deposited into your account at the avoided cost rate (about 3-4 cents per kWh).

Solar gets even better with the federal tax credit covering 30% of the total system cost. The city of Orlando offers a PACE program allowing people to pay for their solar system through their property taxes. PACE removes a lot of the barriers since you are no longer tied to your property, if you move house the new owners will just pay a slightly higher property tax. With cash or PACE solar is still an excellent investment although paying cash is still cheaper.

Even if you are not convinced about solar we recommend that at the very least you use the solar panel calculator for Orlando to find out:

The average cost of installing residential solar panels in Orlando, Florida in 2020 is $2.65 per watt. The average system size in the US is 6 kilowatts, which means the average price of a solar system in Orlando, FL is $13,250. (before claiming 26% tax credit and other rebates)

How much do solar panels cost for homes in Orlando and Miami, Florida in 2020?

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.

Of course, up until recently, the Florida solar panel market has been stymied by legislation banning the leasing of solar panels to homeowners within the state.

Florida 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, statistics show that Florida was 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.

How much power does a solar panel produce in Florida?

Per Solar Reviews’ solar panel calculator, here’s the breakdown of how much power solar panels produce in Florida (based on a 5kW solar power system):

Average cost of $2.97 per watt (before the national 26 percent solar tax credit)

12,134 kWh of annual power production

Average lifetime savings of $49,074 compared to traditional electricity systems

Check out our in-depth breakdown of solar panel costs here.

With the basics established, let’s review solar installations across two major Florida cities: Orlando and Miami.

Looking at Orlando Florida

To begin, let’s look at Orlando Florida.

What's the average cost of a solar installation in Orlando?

Orlando averages 233 sunny days per year—well above the national average of 205.

This is great for your solar installation, as the more sunlight your system receives, the better your long-term returns will be.

Specific to Orlando, here’s a breakdown of solar costs:

  • Average cost of solar panels: $2.65 per watt
  • 5kW solar system will cost $13,250 (before the 26 percent solar tax credit)

It’s noteworthy that this comes out to several thousand dollars less than the average cost of solar installations across the nation as a whole, so homeowners in Orlando can take advantage of these benefits for a lower up-front cost than most other states offer.

The reason that the cost per watt of solar panels installed is lower in both Orlando and Florida generally is that homes in Florida use more power on average than homes in almost all of the states of the US and so the average solar system size installed in Florida is larger than in other places.

When solar companies are installing larger systems this allows them to sell for a cheaper cost per watt.

What are the best rebates and incentives to go solar in Orlando?

While not specific to Orlando, the U.S. Department of Energy allows for a personal solar tax credit for home solar panel installations.

This federal solar tax credit is currently 26 percent of the cost of residential solar installations.

The Orlando Utilities Commission also offers net metering meaning customers are paid the full retail value of solar power that they export to the OUC grid.

More details about OUC net metering can be found on Orlando Utilities website.

While this won’t significantly pad your bank account, residents may earn several hundred dollars in this “free” money per year—certainly worth taking advantage of.
