Solar Savings & Efficiency
The Sunshine State has seen a recent boom in solar panel installations as more homeowners become aware of the huge savings solar energy offers.
Solar’s value proposition has been driven up by the declining cost of solar panels, which are now available in Florida at an average cost of just $2.61 per watt before incentives.
Combine the reduced cost of solar panels with generous federal incentives, favorable utility programs, and Florida’s Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing, and going solar in Florida is a better deal than ever before.
Are Solar Panels Efficient?
Some solar panels convert 22 percent of their available energy into electrical power. This is an actually amazing number if you consider the fact that we are paying a lot of our electricity bills every month. The solar panels are made of solar cells. A cell is a small disk of a semiconductor like silicon. They are attached by wire to a circuit. As light strikes the semiconductor, light is converted into electricity that flows through the circuit. As soon as the light is removed, the solar cell stops producing power.
