Save Money and Achieve Energy Independence
A solar power system will dramatically lower or even eliminate your electric bill. In fact, a solar power system typically pays for itself in energy savings after 5-9 years.
- Reduce or eliminate electric bill
- Eliminate energy cost uncertainty
- Increase you home’s value
- Reduce your environmental impact
- Affordable with rebates and incentives
Receive a 30% Federal tax Credit
Until 2009, the federal government offered an energy incentive of up to $2,000 of the cost of a solar system. Today, through recent legislation, that energy incentive has been modified to cover a full 30% of the cost of a system, which means solar just got a whole lot less expensive. Florida Solar & Air designs systems that are in compliance with all federal reporting regulations in order to take complete advantage of that tax incentive.
Increase the value of your home!
A decrease of $1,000 in yearly energy consumption increases the value of the house by $20,000 (Appraisal Journal, October 1999). While a kitchen remodel increases the amount of property tax paid on the property, the value added by a solar power system is exempt from property tax assessment.
Become Solar Independent
Over time, solar energy costs are much lower than the cost of purchasing electricity from the utility. Solar energy costs less because a solar electric system is your own localized power plant, freeing you from the utility company’s dependence on the fossil fuel marketplace.
Invest wisely for big returns
A solar power system on your home is a long term, low risk, high return way to invest your money. Solar offers an initial tax free annual return on investment from 30% to 40%. This is far higher than high risk investments such as stocks and bonds. As utility rates increase, the annual return increases.
Reduce environmental impact
Most of the energy on the grid today is produced in coal power plants. Generating electricity from clean, renewable solar energy reduces fossil fuel consumption and the emission of harmful pollutants. Even a small solar electric system has a significant environmental impact. For example, a 2.5kW solar system reduces CO2 emissions by an amount similar to that which would occur by planting 1 acre of trees, or the amount of CO2 emitted by a passenger car driving 7,800 miles per year.
