In the first quarter of 2019, Florida had installed more than 3,155 MW of solar power, sufficient to power more than 380,000 homes. The state’s lawmakers are pushing for 100 percent renewable energy throughout Florida by 2050.
As of January 2020, the cost of solar power in the state is $2.70/W on average, which is the lowest in the country. This means an average 6 kW solar installation will cost you $16,200 before rebates and incentives. Sales tax exemption in Florida means that you can save 6 percent when you buy a new solar energy system.
In addition, the 26 percent solar tax credit lets taxpayers claim 26 percent of the system cost to be deducted from income tax. In simple terms, this means you get a 26 percent discount on your solar installation.
