Solar power in Homestead, Florida
The City of Homestead offers a net metering program to their solar customers. Under net metering each unused kWh produced by your solar system is sent to the grid and that offsets the cost of another kWh drawn from the grid such as at night for example. If your solar system exports more energy than what your home pulls from the grid the excess is credited at the retail rate for power and can be used to offset the cost of future bills up to 1 year later. At the end of the 12 month billing cycle excess credit can be deposited into your account. There is also the federal solar tax credit allowing you to deduct 30% of the total system cost from your taxes over however many years. This tax credit also imposes no size restrictions, it'll always cover 30%.
