Solar power in Davenport, Florida
Duke Energy Florida offer their solar customers in Davenport net metering. Net metering credits each kWh of unused solar generation at same value as another kWh drawn from the grid at a later time. Net Excess Generation (NEG) after covering the cost of power drawn from the grid is still credited at the retail value for power and is applicable to future bills within the same 12 month billing cycle. Remaining kWh at the end of the 12 months are credited at the retail generation rate and cash is deposited into your account. With so much sunshine in Davenport net metering can save or even make you a lot of money.
If you have a taxable income 30% of the system cost can be claimed as a deduction to federal taxes. This incentive can be spread over several years and will always cover 30% regardless of system size. Incentives make installing solar in Davenport a no brainer and no home or business owner should wait since large IOU's like Duke Energy Florida are trying to stop net metering.
