As amazing and wonderful as solar power is, complete energy independence can be difficult to obtain without the assistance of a battery backup. This is mainly due to the fact that every system installed in Florida must be tied to the grid, meaning that when the grid goes down, so does your solar system. The Tesla Powerwall can detect an outage, disconnect from the grid, and automatically restore power to your home in a fraction of a second. You will not even notice that the power went out, keeping your home up and running without any interruption. Find out about pricing for Tesla Powerwall in Florida!Get a quote

What is the average cost of a solar system by size in Jacksonville, FL?
Roof pitch, electricity usage, personal/household needs, orientation, and more are all things taken into consideration when sizing a system for your home. Fortunately, you won’t have to worry about figuring out all the nitty-gritty details, for we have solar experts that can give you a free consultation and quote, and can answer all of your solar-related questions.
The cost of a solar power system in Jacksonville, FL can vary, but the savings are undoubtedly immense. Jacksonville is a fantastic solar resource, and a lot of communities are suitable for solar due to their nature of construction. Unfortunately, JEA currently does not offer a full-scale net metering program. But don’t let this discourage you from going solar, as they do provide limited net metering options. What we do to maximize your savings, is we buffer it with self-consumption and energy storage. This way you’re not relying as heavily on net metering, and you end up getting more of a blended payback.
Tax Credit is Extended!
This is excellent news as it was previously scheduled to end in 2024. That is an 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 current federal solar incentive 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, as the incentives remain at their highest, and inflation is slowly creeping the prices of solar installations up.
Benefits of installing a residential solar system in Jacksonville
Still questioning whether or not you should go solar? Here are the top 3 reasons why we believe you should go solar in Jacksonville, FL:
Reduce and eliminate your utility bill
Perhaps one of the most commonly mentioned reasons to go solar is to cut the cost of your electric bill. While this is not the only benefit, it sure is a great one. Imagine never having to worry about that pesky utility bill or any of its fluctuations. This utopia is attainable with solar.
Do the Earth a favor
Would you intentionally set your house on fire? Probably not. The Earth is our home. That is – until we figure out how to pick up and move to a different planet. But that might be a while, so we need to figure out how to live more sustainably and stop participating in practices that are severely harming our home. Solar is one step that a lot of people can take towards a more sustainable future.
Solar has never been cheaper
Yes, it’s true: the cost to go solar has never been lower! With prices and an LCOE (levelized cost of electricity) for solar that’s at an all-time low, plus the addition of federal tax incentives (and other potential grants that are available), you can drastically reduce the price you pay for solar. Shorter payback periods and happier bank accounts are a win-win in our book!

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
