Solar Energy Storage Gives You Protection Against Power Outages In Central Florida

Solar energy storage is especially important in Florida, where we tend to experience frequent power outages. Between 2008 and 2018, the number of power outages experienced by Florida residents exceeded 25 million, due to Florida’s tropical climate and susceptibility to hurricanes and storm threats. In the event of a power outage from a storm, hurricane, or other natural disasters, your solar battery will keep your solar-powered home running even if the power grid goes down. Your stored solar energy is available anytime, even when the sun isn’t shining!

Installing a solar battery can help you save money! This is especially the case if you ever receive additional demand charges or time-of-use rates from the utility company. With a solar battery, you’ll have the ability to use your own stored energy, as needed, at no additional cost.

Is Having A Solar Battery For Energy Storage Necessary?

Buying a solar battery for energy storage is not necessary, however, there are tremendous benefits in doing so. Many households that make the transition to solar energy, but choose not to purchase a solar battery, wind up staying connected to the power grid. This serves as a fallback, which gives them access to additional electricity, in the event that their solar panels are not generating enough power to meet their needs.

So, even though you don’t need one, having a solar battery can have great benefits, eliminates the need to stay connected to the power grid, and gives you more energy independence!

Energy Production and the Benefit of Net Metering

Depending on how much solar energy you produce and how much energy you use each month, you may be able to take advantage of Florida’s Net Metering program. Net metering allows you to connect your approved solar energy system to the electric grid and sell any extra electricity back to your electric company if your solar energy system produces more energy than you need. The amount of energy you sell back may be deducted from your monthly bill or credited toward a future electric bill.

The Benefits Of Having A Solar Battery Backup System:

  • Reliable Backup Power

  • Protect What’s Important During Power Outages

  • Control Your Energy Costs And Avoid Peak Rates

  • Gain Greater Independence From The Grid

  • Allows The Use Of Clean Energy

  • Florida Residents Can Take Advantage of Net Metering

Act Now – Add A Solar + Battery Storage System & Save

If you’re thinking about adding a solar + battery storage system, now is the time to do it! The federal homeowners’ solar tax credit (ITC) has been increased from 26% to 30% and extended through the year 2034. This will help eligible customers unlock additional average savings to offset the cost of their solar + battery storage system installation!

Frequently Asked Questions About The Investment Tax Credit

Also known as the investment tax credit (ITC), this credit can be claimed on federal income taxes for a percentage of the cost of a solar photovoltaic (PV) system. In August 2022, President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act into law which raised the ITC credit from 26% to 30% and extended it through 2034. After this year, standalone batteries will also be eligible for ITCs. Depending on IRS guidance on how expansive this new category will be, it may create expanded opportunity for battery retrofits on homes with existing solar and new opportunities for standalone battery systems.

  • Homeowners who are eligible to leverage the 30 percent ITC can plan to see the following expenses included as part of the tax credit:
  • Cost of solar panels
  • Labor costs for installation, including permitting fees, inspection costs, and developer fees
  • Balance-of-system equipment, like inverters, wiring, and mounting hardware
  • Home batteries charged by your solar equipment
  • Sales taxes on eligible expenses
  • You might be eligible for this tax credit if you meet all of the following criteria:Have sufficient tax liability. This is the amount of federal tax you owe in a calendar year (whether paid through withholdings or as a lump sum). If you owe taxes at the end of the year, the tax credit reduces what you pay. If you’ve already had federal taxes withheld throughout the year, the tax credit will be part of the calculation for a refund when you file your taxes. If you have insufficient tax liability you may be able to carry over part of the credits into future years for as long as the tax credit is in effect. Consult a tax professional for additional information.
  • Your solar = project must be installed and made operational within the year that you claim the tax credit.
  • You own the solar project. A financed system is also considered eligible, as is one purchased outright.
  • The solar new or being used for the first time (not being re-used or re-installed).

Yes. However, because of the Inflation Reduction Act it is not set to step down to 26% until the year 2032.

Local Incentives To Save Money By Going Solar

On top of the federal tax incentive, there may be state and city-level programs available to encourage solar + battery storage adoption. In most cases, state and local programs stack with the federal incentive, increasing your savings. Be sure to do your research and talk to your installer about possible local incentives so that you can take full advantage of any available savings.

Lower Your Energy Bill With Net Metering

Net metering (also known as net energy metering or NEM) is a solar incentive that allows you to store energy in the electric grid. When your solar panels produce more electricity than you need, that energy is sent to the grid in exchange for credits. Then, at night or other times when your solar panels are underproducing, you pull energy from the grid and use these credits to offset the costs of that energy.
