Benefits of Installing a Residential Solar System in Gainesville
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.
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 Going Away!
The Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a credit of 26% of the cost of installing a solar energy system, that you can put towards your income tax payment. Even better, the ITC applies to both residential and commercial installations, and there is no cap on its value.
With the cost of solar decreasing and the recent extension of the ITC, there has never been a better time than now to invest in solar. Don’t wait – Contact us today to find out how we can help you take advantage of this amazing opportunity, and improve the world one solar panel at a time.
How Much Can You Save by Installing a Solar System in Gainesville?
We’re often asked, “How much can I really save by installing a home solar electricity system in Gainesville?” The fact is, the monetary savings of going solar is significant because the US Inflation Calculator reports that the cost of energy will continue at an astonishing 66.7% over the next thirty years. Therefore, today’s electric bill of $200.00 will most likely be $332.00 in thirty years. Indicating savings can reach upwards of $48,000.00 or more over 30 years with PPM Solar’s adequately sized solar energy system.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where do I begin?
You begin by speaking with a reputable, highly reliable, and professional company. That company is 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?
After making your decision to go solar, you will to speak with a professional at PPM Solar. They 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-so the more kilowatts, the more of an increase
Appraisal Journal states 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
