Although not available in each locality Florida offers a PACE program for communities and their residents to take part in. PACE is essentially a loan or PPA but is paid for at a cheaper rate through property taxes. What makes PACE work so well is that the solar system's cost stays with the property, if you move house the new owner keeps paying. There is no responsibility or large upfront costs with this program, it's basically solar with no strings or cons attached.
