Since 2008, ADT Solar has a proven history and reputation for providing quality service, and was ranked #2 for 2021 Solar Power World’s Top Residential Solar Installer in the United States. We are proud to offer some of the best warranties you can find in the solar industry and only use products that offer the same.
So, you live in Sarasota, Florida, and you’re letting the idea of going solar tickle your fancy. You already know Florida is known as the “Sunshine State.” You’ve likely seen some of your neighbors switch to solar in recent history. You may even have seen or heard about the Mote Marine Laboratory getting solar panels back in ‘12.
The good news is (for you,) they paid A LOT more money for those panels than you will. Like — a lot more. The price of going solar has dropped 45% in the last 5 years. So, while the Aquarium has been doing their part for almost ten years, you can just as easily AND more efficiently jump on the bandwagon with ADT Solar.
But, the price drop isn’t the only incentive to go solar. So, if you’re still here, grab a nice cold sip of Siesta Key Toasted Coconut and keep on reading.
With the abundance of sunshine available in all of Florida, including Sarasota, there has never been a better time to take advantage of home solar panels. With the cost of solar panels being lower than ever, we’re able to provide custom-designed solar energy systems to fit your home’s energy goals to help you start saving money and give you energy independence.
Every solar panel system we install uses high-quality solar panels to give your home top-tier solar power performance and reliability. Your energy system will be backed up by our leading 25-year warranties, so you’ll have peace of mind that your energy performance will remain in top shape for decades.
There are a lot of incentives for installing solar panels if you live in the state of Florida. Besides all the sunshine that keeps your home powered throughout the day, solar panels are a wise investment. Here’s why:
Net metering gives the power back to homeowners in Sarasota. 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.
The ITC, or federal solar tax credit, will reduce the cost of residential solar panel arrays by 30%. 30% of the ENTIRE purchase of home solar panels could be given right back to Sarasota homeowners if eligible as a tax credit from the government the following year.
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 Sarasota, FL. In addition, residents won’t have to pay additional taxes on the added value of having solar panels installed to their homes.
Another thing to not pay for in Sarasota! 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 things you could get at the Farmers’ Market with that extra 6%!
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.

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 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.
So, there you have it. Sarasota is primed and ready for solar power, and your home could be next! The incentives to go solar are as sweet as your oranges, but they won’t be around forever.
