Is Bradenton FL a Good Place to go Solar?

We get this question ALL the time, and the response is almost ALWAYS the same. Yes! There’s no better time than now to go solar in Bradenton, and we’ll tell you why. But, before that, we’ll give you a quick 101 on the good and the bad between Bradenton and electricity. So sit back, relax, and get ready to have your entire outlook on going solar get that much more clear.

Bradenton Energy Snapshot

The good news is typical residential electric bills in Bradenton are about 12.5% lower than the national average. But, that’s about the end of the good news for electricity. The bad news is that residential electricity is steadily on the rise each year. And it’s only going to continue this trend, especially as fossil fuels start to run out and the entire country begins to switch to alternative sources of energy.

Solar Power in Bradenton, FL

The good news about solar power is that you can lock in your home energy cost- and savings- for years to come by switching to clean solar energy. Florida as a whole is slowly but surely transitioning to solar power, boasting over 81,000 solar panel array installations. That’s enough power to accommodate over 780,000 homes!

In fact, a feasibility study conducted by the Community Sustainability Partnership Program at the University of South Florida has this to say about going solar in Manatee County: “…there is no doubt that going solar to achieve net-zero carbon emissions county-wide is an innovative and responsible way to direct the energy future of Manatee County.”

We couldn’t agree more. Especially because folks in Manatee County and Bradenton experience an average of 244 days of sunshine each year (that’s over 40 more days than the national average!)

With that much sunshine, there’s plenty to go around and power homes throughout the day (and, if you opt for a backup battery, you’ll have power throughout the night and those rainy days, too!)

The good news doesn’t stop there. In case you aren’t sold on investigating going solar further and getting a free solar quote, maybe these will help you decide:

Solar Panels Increase Home Value in Bradenton

Even the experts agree! In two separate studies by the Department of Energy and Berkeley Laboratory and US Department of Energy and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the evidence was clear.

On average, solar panels add $20 of value for every $1 you save on your electric bill. So if you saved $200 a month on your electric bill with solar panels, you’d have an additional $4,000 of value added to your home.

In addition, homes with solar panels on average got a higher asking price than those without. About $4/watt, which comes out to be around $15,000 for residential, depending on your home and solar system.

Solar panels can help your property spend less time on the market. In another study done by NREL, they found that solar properties earned about 17% more at closing as well as selling 20% faster.

What all this means: Solar panels add value to homes in Bradenton, FL. In addition, residents won’t have to pay additional taxes on the added value of having solar panels installed to their homes.

The Federal Solar Tax Credit (ITC)

Probably the biggest incentive for going solar is the ITC, or the solar tax credit. It could reduce the cost of your residential solar panel array by 30%. That’s right – 30% of your entire purchase of home solar panels could be given back to you as a tax credit from the government the following year. If you don’t use all the credit that first year, the remainder rolls over to the next.*

Sales Tax Exemption

Another thing you won’t have to pay for in Bradenton when you go solar! So, not only will you get more money for your home due to the increased value, but even BEFORE that, you won’t have to pay the sales tax on your new solar array (and batteries, if you choose.) Think of all the tasty things you could try at the GLBC with that extra 6% in your pocket!

Net Metering

Net metering gives the power back to homeowners in Bradenton FL. It allows them to sell back the excess power generated by their solar panels to where it came from AND it can credit their accounts.

Those credits can also come in handy when the sun goes down at night, or if you have a particularly cloudy day (and don’t have a backup battery,) homeowners can utilize those credits and not come out-of-pocket for power used.

Florida Property Assessed Clean Energy Loans

This program, PACE, is a way to finance energy efficiency improvements to your home. In fact, this system can finance 100% of the cost for your improvements. And yes, that includes solar panels. This can be an excellent way to get your Bradenton solar energy system, especially since it covers the total cost of purchase and installation. You can reap the benefits of solar energy from day one. PACE is available in many areas of Florida.

However, this loan is repaid through your property tax bill. It is also tied to your home, rather than to you. These are things to consider before getting a PACE loan. But if you plan to stay in your current home, this loan could be just what you need to get solar power in Florida. Be sure to look into all the details before deciding to apply.

The Florida Solar Rights Act

Florida Statute 163.04 forbids any binding agreement between HOAs or otherwise to prohibit a property owner from installing solar panels.  Period.  They can try to tell you where on your roof to put them (maybe the HOA doesn’t want them to be in plain view,) but if their desired location or requirements doesn’t meet an orientation to the south or within 45° east or west of due south, they cannot stop you from installing solar panels on your roof that provide the highest efficiency for you.

Protection During Outages with Solar Power in Bradenton, FL

Another great reason Florida residents are switching to solar energy is the benefits of feeling secure when disasters such as hurricanes strike. With a solar panel battery backup like the Tesla Powerwall or Enphase Encharge, you’ll be protected during any type of outage, including major disasters. Be sure to ask your Solar Sales Specialist about adding a home battery backup to your installation.

Recently the SunPro Team came out to do my panel installation. They showed up when they were suppose to and ready to work. They reviewed my initial design and saw were they could move more of the panels to the south side of the house which would increase my production. They made the plans and consulted with their engineer and he agreed. They completed the install with no problem and improved the my planned output potential. I would recommend them highly.
