The Benefits of Residential Solar Energy

In Florida, energy is a major concern. As one of the most hurricane, tornado, and thunderstorm prone areas in North America, power outages are a persistent concern for all Floridians. When you are on the grid, you are at the mercy of the energy companies. That means that you are part of a long line with thousands of people who often have to wait for days for their power to return. In addition to being a disruptive inconvenience, this is a major safety concern as refrigerators, lighting, internet, AC systems, and even security systems go offline indefinitely.

Luckily, there is a solution! Going solar with WattSun Solar not only makes your home energy independent, but also keeps you safe and comfortable when your power goes out. One of the key factors that make WattSun solar panels and installation unique from others are our compatible battery systems that ensure you will never lose power. This means your phone, laptop, and tablet chargers will all work perfectly even if your area faces an elongated blackout power outage. It also means you won’t have to worry about your security systems, AC, or internet going out or your food going bad because your clean solar energy will be stored in our batteries, even on days when there is no sun!

While the environmental benefits of using solar energy in the Sunshine state are clear, it also improves the long term value of your home. This is due to the savings associated with solar energy as well as the fact that installing solar panels are considered a major upgrade on a home that new owners won’t have to do themselves. In all, a home with solar panels that goes on the market can have property value increase by as much 4% or more, which is a significant selling point in Florida’s famous residential real estate market.

All the while, you will be paying significantly less on your energy bills and firmly securing your quality of life. Another major benefit to making the switch to solar with WattSun is that our skilled installation specialists can have your brand new, state-or-the-art solar panel and battery system installed in a single day. While your home can become energy independent in a day, the benefits will last generations.

Federal Solar Tax Credit (ITC) in Florida

In addition to Florida’s state solar programs, you’ll be eligible for the federal solar tax credit if you buy your own home solar system outright. In 2020, the tax credit can reduce the cost of a solar installation by 26%, including a solar battery purchase. That means if you purchase a 6-kilowatt system for $18,300, you’ll pay $13,8542 after you receive your tax credit. The federal solar tax credit is scheduled to drop to 22% in 2021. After 2021, the tax credit is slated to be phased out.

Solar energy created to power a home largely depends on the amount of sunlight of that home.
