As a Florida homeowner, you’re eligible for a 30% federal solar tax credit.7** The federal solar tax credit gives you a dollar-for-dollar reduction against your federal income tax. The 30% tax credit applies as long as the home solar system is installed by December 31, 2019. Starting in 2020, the value of the tax credit will step down to 26%, and then again to 22% in 2021. After 2021, the tax credit for residential solar ends. In addition, you get a property tax exemption on the added home value from your system’s cost. Plus, purchased systems are free from state sales tax, which means you can save 6% right from the start.8
In addition to Florida solar tax credits, home solar installations are designed to last 30 years or longer. So we’re sure you’ll be a happy home solar owner for decades.
