Tesla Powerwall

Power outages by electric utility companies happen regularly throughout Florida. No matter the cause, any outage disrupts and often happens at the most inconvenient of times.

Adding a Tesla Powerwall or Enphase IQ Battery Energy Storage System to your solar PV-system means refrigerators, freezers, or other essential appliances are not disrupted and are available during a power outage. These add-on systems are rechargeable lithium-ion battery banks designed for storing electricity for solar self-consumption during outages, time of use load shifting, and backup power.

One of our solar panels was not functioning. This happened a couple of years after the solar installation. We called PPM Solar - they diagnosed the problem virtually and then came and fixed it. All costs were covered through the warranty. We are extremely happy with our solar system which covers most of our energy use. I highly recommend it for people who have to run air conditioner in summer, like we do.

From start to finish the team at PPM Solar excelled in all aspects of the process and experience. As a first-time solar customer, I had lots of questions about the best setup for my specific needs. I am in the country where power outages can be more frequent and prolonged. I wanted a system that could also provide backup power during prolonged outages. From sales through final inspection, PPM Solar team understood my situation and goals, designed a fabulous solution and worked with me on timeframe so we could do panels first, then battery storage in a later phase. For every question I had, they were super helpful in getting me answers... they even encouraged my questions ???? Their install team was super professional and efficient. Their project coordinator was amazing, making my part of the process easy and efficient, and kept me informed every step of the way. At the final walkthrough, I appreciated all the expertise and recommendations they shared on my system's operation and best practices to keep the panels clean, etc. It is clear to me that this team is both expert in solar, but also they love solar. They bring that great energy to all their client interactions and are happy to educate us as we learn our new systems. I am thrilled they are my solar team! Exciting to be moving forward with them on battery storage. I am delighted to give them 5 stars on expertise, client relations and ease of the entire process. LOVE my system, and grateful to PPM Solar!

I can’t recommend PPM Solar enough for your solar panel needs. They were clear about how many panels were needed and where they would be the most efficient. They did the install along with adding a Tesla wall charger (which they are certified to do) all in one day. Their crew has clearly worked together for a good while as evidenced by how efficiently they worked together. Their entire staff from the installers to the electricians, production manager, administrative staff etc are all great and seem to really enjoy their work. They are a local company that has been working in the area and I would select them again and have recommended them to my friends.

PPM Solar was great. It took a little longer than expected but working with Gabby was easy and she kept me informed. We had some issues with the county and power company but it all got handled. Everyone I encountered was professional and friendly. The install went smooth, the panels look great and the app is easy to use. Now I am not worried about the power going off at any time.

How much do solar panels cost in Florida?

There are several factors taken into consideration. Location of the house, roof type, roof angle or pitch, seasonal shading, and energy consumption are all closely examined for an accurate solar kilowatt requirement calculation.

PPM Solar uses state-of-the-art processes and works directly with you to evaluate your property to ensure pinpoint accuracy. Armed with these facts, we devise a professional solar estimate of the system size, solar panel options, energy backup system, mounting, and labor costs. With over 14 years of 5-star performance installing solar in Florida, you can count on our accuracy.

Why go solar?

Save money

With solar energy, you can offset your monthly utilities, allowing you to pay off installation costs in a matter of years and saving you thousands of dollars over the lifetime of your solar energy system. You’ll also be eligible for tax rebates and incentives and, in some cases, can even earn credit from your utility company for the energy you produce.

Increase Sustainability

An investment in solar is an investment in sustainability. Dramatically decrease your carbon footprint and reliance on fossil fuels while improving your impact on global climate change. Unlike other energy sources, solar doesn’t disrupt ecosystems or release harmful pollutants into the air and water supply. It’s also a great way to boost interest in clean technologies and the economies they support.

Gain Energy Independence

A residential solar power system gets you one step closer to energy independence. Know where your power comes from, how it’s produced, and how it’s sourced. Avoid rising and fluctuating rates, take control of your savings, and increase the value of your home. With solar energy, it’s up to you, not the utility company, how you spend your savings.

Protect Your Savings

Use solar energy and storage solutions to protect your home from unplanned power outages, insulate your finances from unpredictable energy costs, and minimize your reliance on public utilities. A comprehensive solar energy and storage solution allows uninterrupted power even when utilities turn off or the sun goes down.

Tax Credit is Extended!

That means additional TEN years for consumers to take advantage of this incredible tax credit program. And not only that – clients that install solar energy systems in 2022 get an increase from 26% to 30%! That’s a nice bonus — a whopping $1,500 for an average solar client!

The federal solar tax credit is currently set at 30%. It is, however, scheduled to decrease in 2033 from 30% down to 26% and from 26% to 22% in 2034. There has never been a better time to go solar!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I begin?

You begin by speaking with a reputable, highly reliable, and professional company. Contact PPM Solar! We will work with you through every phase of the process. From consultations to design, to installation and maintenance. PPM is one of the most reviewed solar companies in the country. With a 12-year track record of dedication to customer satisfaction and over 750 projects performed, our work speaks for itself.

How do solar panels work?

The simple answer is: sunlight is absorbed through the panels to produce energy. An inverter in the system then converts that energy into useful electricity. That electricity is sent to the AC breaker panel, with any remaining energy “net-metered” to the grid.

What does the solar panel installation process look like?

 Contact PPM Solar! We will schedule an assessment on your property to determine which solar system will work best. Designing your system is next! On to financing and permitting. 

Once all of these things are completed, the installation will be scheduled. Prior to the installation, you should re-check the site selected for the panels. If you chose ground-mounted panels, double check that there is nothing blocking the sunlight and there is no debris in the area. If you opted for roof mounted panels, the roof must be prepped. Check the shingles or tiles to make sure they are attached securely. Remove anything that might be attached to the roof that may be in the way of installation, such as a satellite dish. Also check for trees that could cast shadows or overhanging limbs. They may need to be pruned prior to installation to ensure maximum energy output. 

 

On the day of solar panel installation, there will be various types of noise. If you have small children who nap during the day or if you work from home, you may want to make different arrangements. 

 

Once the installation is completed, there will be a final inspection and then activation of the system. Now, you are ready to reap all of the benefits going solar brings!

Is solar financing available?

Yes! Solar financing can be obtained several ways. There are conditions and requirements for each option. You can finance through PPM Solar. Secured and unsecured loans, as well as second mortgages are other ways to find financing.  Some Florida utility companies offer financing. There are also programs available like the PACE program and Government Loans through the Federal Housing Administration.

How long do solar panels last?

On average, the designed lifespan of your residential solar system is around 30 years. However, that’s not to say your system won’t work well beyond the recommended service life. In fact, there are some solar home energy systems installed over 40 years ago that are still producing power today. 

How much can I save on my electric bill with a solar panel system?

Annually, you can expect to save around $1500 for a 6kW system.

Are there any solar incentives available for homeowners?

Yes! There is currently a 30% Investment Tax Credit (ITC). While there are no state rebates, several counties in Florida do offer rebates.

Does solar increase the value of my home?

In most cases, yes! Studies have shown different calculations for how a home can increase in value.

  • Zillow- on average, homes with solar have sold for over 4% more than those without (depending on location, some could be more, some could be less)
  • Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory indicates a resale value of just under $6k for each kilowatt of installed solar power; the more kilowatts there are, the more significant the increase.

  • Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory indicates a resale value of just under $6k for each kilowatt of installed solar power; the more kilowatts there are, the more significant the increase.

Appraisal Journal reports that for every $1 saved in energy costs, the home value increases by $20.

How do I prepare my home for solar electricity?

  • Have your roof examined to ensure it will hold the load capacity of the panels and racks.
  • Make any repairs needed to the roof.
  • Remove any debris, satellite dishes, etc.
  • Trim any trees that may overhang or shade the roof.
  • Check for proper insulation, repair any windows or doors that may have leaks as this will decrease the optimum energy output provided by the system.
  • Check to make sure your appliances are energy-efficient.
