We’ve updated the rebates and incentives available in the great State of Florida. The good news for Floridians is that we’re tentatively bumping our SolarPowerRocks Legislative Score to 4 suns from 3 due to the push to keep the State Rebate funded. Also:
- There are also a host of loan programs and regional utility rebates that are keeping solar affordable.
- An average 5KW system can be as little as around $10,000, a great price.
- State wide net metering has been implemented, making sure that any excess power your panels produce can be banked and later purchased back by you (at night for example) at the same rate. Previously, there were different net metering programs that varied greatly.
So what’s the caution? The State keeps running out of funding for the program that’s supposed to last at least through 2010. No telling if utilities will scale back their programs. However, we’re optimistic that the governor and legislators will keep trying to fund the rebates either through Federal stimulus package or other means, but ….there’s no guarantee that’s going to happen, so get it while you can…. if you still can.
