Tesla Powerwall

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!

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.

What is the Average Cost of a Solar System in Tampa, FL?

Fortunately, a 10.2 kW system (roughly 28 solar panels in Tampa Bay) can offset approximately 90% of Tampa’s average monthly utility bill. At an average market price of solar systems in Tampa, a 10.2 kW system would initially cost roughly $27,500.

Now, let’s subtract the 26% Federal Tax Credit of $7,040, for which most homeowners are eligible.

In addition, other savings include not having to pay the sales tax in Florida and solar being exempt from the county tax assessment!

Add in the energy production, and the estimated savings over 30 years typically exceed $35,000!

Why Go Solar? The Benefits of Installing a Residential Solar System in Tampa

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.

3 - Why Go Solar_ The Benefits of Installing a Residential Solar System in Tampa

Tax Credit is Extended!

This is excellent news, as the federal solar incentive was previously scheduled to end in 2024. Consumers now have an additional TEN years to take advantage of this incredible tax credit program. Moreover, clients who install solar energy systems in 2022 will receive an increase from 26% to 30%, resulting in a significant bonus of $1,500 for an average solar client! Currently, the federal solar incentive is set at 30%. However, it is scheduled to decrease in 2033 from 30% to 26% and further down to 22% in 2034. With incentives at their highest and inflation gradually affecting the prices of solar installations, 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. 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 that 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’ll schedule an assessment of your property to determine the best solar system. Next comes designing your system! Then, it’s onto 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 that 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 and second mortgages are other ways to find financing. Some Florida utility companies offer financing. Programs like the PACE program and Government Loans through the Federal Housing Administration are also available.

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 of an 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 and 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
