Solar power in Saint Augustine, Florida
FPL offer their Saint Augustine solar customers net metering crediting every surplus kWh of solar generation at the same value as one drawn from the grid at night or when it's cloudy for example. Net metering especially in sunny Florida makes paying off your bill easy. Excess kWh after covering your bill are applied to the next month as a credit. At the end of a 12 month billing cycle any excess credit is placed into your account at the retail generation rate per kWh.
30% of your system cost may also be claimed as a deduction to federal taxes. The federal solar tax credit may be spread across several years and always covers 30% no matter the size. Incentives in Saint Augustine will never be better than what they are now and with utilities trying to kill net metering don't wait another minute!
