Florida Net Metering

The average energy loss for electricity companies in Florida is 5.48%. This includes data from 33 suppliers, including Florida Power & Light, Duke Energy Florida, and Tampa Electric. The countrywide average is 2.87%, resulting in Florida receiving a rank of 45th best in the country for energy loss efficiency.

Solar Taxes And Rebates

When it comes to stimulating solar panel installs at private residences, one of the best uses of government resources is tax breaks and rebates for solar installs. Florida offers a credit that is $1000 or less or there is no state tax. The state offers limited local rebates for solar panel purchases. Fortunately, Florida offers a 100% tax exemption to residents who wish to purchase solar panels at their place of residence. There is currently a 100% sales tax exemption in place for the install of solar at a home.

State Level Initiatives

Policies drawn up at the state level affect whether customers who are seeking renewable energy sources can easily find alternatives. Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) encourage or require electric providers to generate a percentage of their electricity from green energy. Florida does not currently have any standards established that providers have to follow. In addition, the state does not have any sort of low income solar programs that help with the installation of solar panels at low income households.
