The solar industry is exploding. Living in the Sunshine state is a great place to invest in solar power. The average electric bill in the state of Florida is $123 a month, this is roughly 11 cents per kilowatt hour. The average solar panel installation is a moderate initial investment somewhere between $25,000 and $35,000, even at this initial price point, most homeowners will find the costs far less than remaining connected to local power grids. Installing a home solar panel system is an extremely wise energy expense that pays for itself incrementally. In 2010, less than 10 yrs ago, photovoltaic power cells were up to 66% more expensive than today. Now is an excellent time to consider solar power.
In Florida there are special tax credits that will help Floridians save up to 30 percent back on their investment. This applies to individuals who own their panels out right and not to those who finance or lease their solar panel systems in their homes. This does offer an opportunity to save big during tax season.
