Solar power in Port Saint Lucie, Florida

Florida Power and light offer net metering to their solar customers in Port Saint Lucie. Under net metering each kWh of unused solar generation is sent to the grid and cancels out the cost of another kWh drawn from the grid at a later time. Especially with such sunny weather solar systems usually produce more power than what the home draws and you will receive credit for future bills within the same billing cycle, if excess credit remains at the end of the cycle FPL will deposit the money into your account. Net metering will make you a lot of money! There is also the federal solar tax credit covering 30% of the system cost in the form of a tax deduction. This incentive may be used over several years and always covers 30% regardless of system size.

The greatest incentive in Port St. Lucie is the solar PACE program. PACE is essentially a lease or PPA but paid through property taxes meaning it stays with the home. Even if you only wanna stay in your home for a year you can still wipe out your power bill. It's solar without the feeling of being tied to your investment. With options and incentives like these you'd have to be crazy not to go solar!

Even if you are not convinced about solar we recommend that at the very least you use the solar panel calculator to find out:
