Solar power in Clermont, Florida
Both SECO and Duke energy offer an excellent net metering program from their Clermont customers. Under net metering each kWh of unused solar generation is exported to the grid at the retail tariff rate. After paying off your bill your utility will credit your account.

There is also the 30% federal solar tax credit, this has no size limit to receive the full 30% and may be spread over several years.
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.
