Types of systems we offer:
Grid Tied System-Grid Tied Systems are the most popular system and show the best return on investment. A grid tied system remains connected to the electricity grid and is wired into the existing electric of the home. The solar generates power to feed the home, and any excess power will be fed back to the electric grid. The current “Florida Net Metering Law” ensures you will get a dollar for dollar credit on excess power you have sent back to the power company.
Grid Tied System with Battery Back up- This system will operate the same as a grid tied system, however in the event of a power outage, the system will automatically switch over to the stored power in your battery bank. The solar will continue to charge the batteries and enable you to run your designated loads in the event of a power outage.
Off Grid Solar System-Off grid systems are ideal for remote locations where there is no electricity grid. Off grid, or stand alone solar systems, work independently from the electricity grid. The solar array produces power that feeds directly to a battery bank and the necessary loads will draw power from the battery bank.
Do Solar Panels Add Value to a House?
Installing solar panels in Orlando can significantly increase your property’s value, according to a new study from the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBL). The report, titled “Selling into the sun: Price premium analysis of a multi-state dataset of solar homes“, builds on previous research which concluded that homes with solar panels in California sold for more than those without.
In addition to California, the new study investigates home pricing trends Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, New York and Pennsylvania by analyzing the sales of over 20,000 homes in these states.
LBL’s analysis of the housing markets in these other states shows that the premium paid for homes with solar is not a phenomenon isolated to the Golden State. The clear takeaway: solar panels really do add value to a home.
How Much Value Do Solar Panels Add?
Example: a 5 kilowatt (kW) solar system (the national average) will offer 5,000 watts of power. LBL says that each watt of solar adds about $4 to a home’s value in California and about $3 elsewhere. Thus, a home with solar should sell for about ($4 x 5,000W =) $20,000 more in CA or still ($3 x 5,000W =) $15,000 more outside of CA.
What is the Solar Investment Tax Credit?
The Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is currently a 26 percent federal tax credit claimed against the tax liability of residential (Section 25D) and commercial and utility (Section 48) investors in solar energy property. The Section 25D residential ITC allows the homeowner to apply the credit to his/her personal income taxes.
This credit is used when homeowners purchase solar systems outright and have them installed on their homes. In the case of the Section 48 credit, the business that installs, develops and/or finances the project claims the credit.
How Does the Solar Investment Tax Credit Work?
A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the income taxes that a person or company claiming the credit would otherwise pay the federal government. The ITC is based on the amount of investment in solar property.
Both the residential and commercial ITC are equal to 30 percent of the basis that is invested in eligible property which have commence construction through 2019. The ITC then steps down to 26 percent in 2020 and 22 percent in 2021. After 2021, the residential credit will drop to zero while the commercial and utility credit will drop to a permanent 10 percent.
