Florida Solar Incentives Are Back

Until now, 2012 solar rebates offered by the major utility companies have been dried up.

If you’re lucky enough to be a customer of Gainesville Regional Utilities, Progress Energy, Tampa Electric, Florida Power and Light or Gulf Power, you’ll now have access to $1.15 to $2.00 per watt on your grid-tied solar power system. What does that mean to you? If you qualify, you’ll receive $7,500 to $20,000 from your utility company for “going solar”. And this does not include the 30% Federal Tax Credit that can be applied to equipment and installation costs or net-metering credits you could receive on your power bill.

Most of the applications are due on October 1, so you’ll want to get started right away. Read more about solar incentives available in Florida.
