Why does it make sense to consider solar panels if you live in Florida? The average monthly electricity consumption for a resident in Florida is 19.71% greater than the national average monthly consumption of 903 kWh/month. This makes the average monthly residential electricity bill in Florida around $123, which ranks 9th in the U.S. And according to the EIA, Florida consumes almost eight times as much energy as it produces. That means extra electric savings to homeowners in Clearwater who choose to go solar.
Looking for a solar energy company in Clearwater Florida can be daunting, but with ADT Solar’s 25 year Labor Warranties and Production Guarantees the decision is easy.
When you choose to install solar panels on your home, you’ll also be part of keeping Florida’s natural resources clean because solar energy is environmentally friendly. Homeowners in Clearwater can also take advantage of the generous Florida state and federal tax incentives to make going solar easy and affordable.
Because of solar power’s great impact on the environment, there are a lot of incentives available to Florida solar purchasers to encourage solar. Due to varying uses of electricity consumption and home efficiency, the payback on solar panels differs from person to person. However, for most people, the investment in solar panels pays back within 6-8 years. Creating power during the day isn’t the only way you earn back your investment in solar panels. There’s also several solar incentives you are eligible for in Clearwater that will help making the choice to go solar easy.
The best incentive for going solar is the money you’ll save over and over on your energy bill. However, to make the choice to go solar there are a few tax breaks and programs that help you see the benefit right away. In Clearwater, the following incentives are available to homeowners:
These are just a few of the ways that you can save money, or even put money back into your pocket!
Solar panel systems in Clearwater qualify for this generous 30% tax credit. This tax credit will give you up to 30% of the total cost of your investment as a credit towards taxes already paid to the federal government. This can also be spread for up to five years.

The good news about purchasing solar panels in Clearwater is that they are EXEMPT from sales tax in the state of Florida. That means you have the opportunity to raise the value of your property and switch to clean energy without paying a dime of sales tax on your solar panels.
Speaking of raising the value of your property, what about the higher property taxes that go with it? Have no fear, ADT Solar is here! Adding a solar panel system can raise the value of your home by up to 20 times the annual electric bill. Solar panels instantly make your home more valuable, but you won’t pay any extra in property tax!
Net metering allows your electric meter to actually run backwards. This means the meter will run backwards if you create more power than you are using. That usually happens during the day when you’re not using the energy, like when you’re at work. At night, your solar panels probably won’t pick up all that much sunshine, so your electricity will come from the grid. If your solar panels generate more power than you use throughout the month, you can even have a negative power bill. The power company then credits that surplus forward until next month.
The steps to set up net metering are pretty simple. However, ADT Solar handles all the requirements for you, so you don’t have to worry about it.
There are several providers that service the Clearwater area who provide net metering. For more information, read more on their sites.
