Tampa FAQs

Tampa is an ideal place for solar, with Florida ranking 13th in the nation for the amount of solar installations. There are over 93,000 solar installations across the state that thrive with over 300 sunny days per year. Additionally, solar prices have dropped 4% over the past five years, making Florida an increasingly appealing place for going solar

Solar panels have several benefits. They can lower your monthly electricity costs, increase your home resale price, lower your annual taxes, reduce harmful impacts on the environment, and much more.

The solar investment tax credit (ITC) is a federal incentive available for anyone making the switch to solar power. The ITC helps you save 30% on your total project cost if it was installed before or in 2032. It then decreases to 26% in 2033.

While Florida itself doesn’t offer a solar tax credit, you can still take advantage of city-level solar incentives and rebates.

Fortunately, Florida law provides property tax exemptions to ensure homeowners won’t have to pay additional taxes based on the increased value of their home. So while you

Solar panels increase your home’s resale price with a return on investment (ROI) that’s higher than most other types of home improvements.

Additionally, Florida provides property tax exemptions for homeowners who invest in solar panels, restricting them from paying additional taxes based on their home’s increased value.

The federal government offers a solar investment tax credit (ITC) to subsidize the purchase and installation costs of a home solar installation and a commercial solar installation

The ITC allows you to save 30% on the total cost of your solar project if installed in 2022 to 2032, and decreases to 26% in 2033.

There is a possibility that your solar panels will increase the cost of your home insurance since they add to the price of your home. However, this is dependent on your homeowners policy. 

Homeowners’ policies usually rate their premiums according to the value of the house, so in the event of an accident, your home is adequately covered. Therefore your insurance policy will likely increase to match the increased value of your home.

The average home typically needs an eight-kW solar system to fully cover residential electricity needs. An eight-kW SunPower solar panel system from Freedom Solar has 24 solar panels. 

If your home is on the lower end of electricity usage, you can sell your excess energy to your utility provider through a net metering program. That way, you are still benefiting from your panels without using their entire energy output.

We provide solar solutions to homeowners and businesses in Tampa, Bradenton, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Brandon, Seminole Heights, St. Cloud, Kissimee, Winter Garden, The Villages, and more.

The sunshine state, and Tampa specifically, receives 244 days of sunshine a year which helps explain why Florida has seen a solar boom these past few years. Utility solar rebates can be combined with other local incentives and federal tax credits to make the switch to solar power systems accessible. These financial incentives, combined with increasing electric utility rates, make solar energy an investment decision that will continue to provide cost savings for years to come.

Home Battery Backup Systems

Backup power is a system that connects to electricity sources, typically solar panels and the electric grid, to store excess power and return it to your home when you need it, generally because of a power outage during an emergency. In most cases, your backup power supply will come from a generator or a battery. Today’s solar batteries are also intelligent energy management systems that can optimize your home’s energy usage to take advantage of utility time-of-use plans or to ensure that your electric car is charged with solar power.

  • Solar battery backup power systems including Tesla Powerwall
