Homes In Florida Have Enough Sun Exposure for a Productive Solar System
Having enough sunlight is one the most obvious benefits of home solar in Florida but it’s not for every home. Should you have a home with a very low power bill then solar probably is not going to be cost-effective. It’s possible to benefit if the cost of a solar system is low enough but the benefits are greater the more power you use. A good standard is if your bills averages are $120 or more a month.
Naturally, if a home has a great deal of tree coverage then it can get costly trimming or removing trees for solar to be effective. But solar can be installed in any sun-exposed areas on the majority of properties and be productive. All these different methods really do require some help from an expert. It’s imperative to get it right from the beginning.
All Homes Have a Monthly Power Bill to Offset The Cost of Solar
Because every home has a power bill, homeowners can use that money toward solar and ultimately own their own power company. It’s nice to offset the cost of solar using the power bill money to pay for it, but there are additional savings available.

Homeowners don’t have any of these additional expenses. Power companies then have to mark-up the cost of the power produced from solar. This is important information to give us an insight into how power companies are going to pass those costs in the future on to the customer.
