Local Solar Companies like Meraki are HIRING like crazy to add Sales People, Installers, and Managers. Solar is One of the Fastest Growing Sectors in the Panhandle and USA.
A Typical Residential Solar Panel System will Eliminate Three to Four Tons of Carbon Emissions Each Year —the Equivalent of Planting over 100 Trees Annually. Natural Gas is a reason for Fracking - Not Good !!
Throughout Florida, Utility Companies are switching to Solar Power and Keeping the Benefits for Themselves, Solar now Accounts for 30% of All New Power as of 2019, Solar is no longer a Fad!
500 sq ft. of Solar Panels Exposed to the Florida Sun for Six Hours Can Easily Power your Average Home for the Day. Some Utility Companies you Can Sell Unused Power to them.
If You Have Solar Power it Makes Even More Sense to Go with a Hybrid/Electric Plug-In Car and Reduce Even Further your Carbon Foot Print and Monthly Fuel Costs.

FLORIDA AND FEDERAL SOLAR INCENTIVES
- FLORIDA NET METERING REGULATORY POLICY It allows you to sell any excess solar energy you may have back to the grid. So during the day when you may be at work and not using much power you are furnishing the power company power and getting paid for it. LEARN MORE
- IN FLORIDA ITS A VALUE ADDED IMPROVEMENT TO YOUR HOME THAT DOES NOT ADD TO YOUR PROPERTY TAX Normally, when you make improvements to your home or otherwise add value to your house, your property tax bills increase. This does not happen with the added value of solar so your FLORIDA PROPERTY TAX BILL does NOT increase. LEARN MORE
- SALES TAX EXEMPTION - You pay no sales tax on the purchase of your Solar Installations in Florida. LEARN MORE
- CURRENT FEDERAL SOLAR TAX CREDITS - In addition to Florida’s tax exemptions and net metering incentives that encourage solar energy systems, the Federal government as well gives you another great incentive "the Investment Tax Credit (ITC)". This generous federal rebate effectively reduces your new solar purchase by 26 percent in 2020 right off the bat in the first year, as a credit on your income tax. (2021 has a smaller incentive then 2022 there is NONE) NOTE: Allowing that you have enough income for the tax credit to be relevant (most home owners do), and the Federal ITC applies only to those who buy their PV system outright with a cash purchase or a solar loan as we do in our Zero Down systems. - LEARN MORE
