Solar power in Oviedo, Florida
Duke Energy Florida and FPL if you live a little out of the city both offer net metering to their solar customers. Net metering credits each kWh of unused solar generation against another one drawn from the grid at night or on a cloudy day for example. When more energy is exported than drawn each kWh is given retail value as a credit to future bills within the same 12 month billing cycle. If at the end of the 12 months credit remains your utility will deposit the cash into your account at the retail generation rate for each kWh. With all the sunshine in Odievo wiping out your power bill is easy.
30% of your solar system's cost may also be claimed as a deduction to federal taxes. The federal solar tax credit can be spread over many years and always covers 30% no matter the system size. Odievo solar incentives are amazing and make solar one of the best investments one can make but, with utilities trying to kill off net metering no good will come from waiting!
