How long does it take to install solar panels on my home?
Rooftop solar system installation usually takes between2-3 weeks, depending upon system complexity. The time for solar panel installations could potentially take longer due primarily to solar permits or utility company inspections. But don’t worry! SEM Power handles all the permitting details needed in order to install solar panels as efficiently as possible.
Do solar panels really save money?
Yes, residential solar panels are very energy efficient . Rooftop solar panels can save thousands of dollars in the long term. In Florida, you can expect an average payback period of about 10 years. Afterwards the panels will supply you with 100% electric for a full 20-30 years of service! Solar electricity savings can equal the net cost of electricity due to compounding energy prices. Over time, your energy costs will rise. A solar panel provides a means of protection in the face of the increasing electrical prices and costs of power.
Solar Incentives, Tax Credits, & Financing
Federal Investment Tax Credit
The most widely recognized solar incentives include a federal solar tax credit or investment tax credit (ITC). With the recent passage of the Inflation Reduction Act by Congress, solar energy is set to be a major player in future electricity supply. The bill includes $370 billion spending on renewable technologies and climate measures over 10 years with an extension of the Solar ITC at 30% for installed photovoltaic (PV) systems. The credit will step down to 26% in 2033 and 22% in 2034.
The 30% credit also applies to energy storage. The credit only applies to battery storage products if they are charged with renewable energy. They can be installed at the time solar is installed, or afterwards on a home that has solar to be eligible.

What is Net Metering?
Certain utility companies in Florida, including Florida Power & Light, Tampa Electric Company, Gulf Power, and Duke Energy, participate in net metering programs. These programs distribute credits to homeowners on their electric bill for surplus electricity they provide back to the grid through their solar energy system.This credit or rebate corresponds to the amount of electricity that they have sent back into the grid over a period of time.
This credit offsets any of the customer’s energy usage, and it can reduce or eliminate them from paying any conventional electricity bill at all. These programs are usually available without a deposit or upfront charges, and can reduce or potentially eliminate your electricity bill.
Florida Local Solar Incentives and Rebates
In some states, when you install a solar system the value of your property assessment rises and therefore, the amount you pay in property taxes goes up as well. NOT IN FLORIDA! There are key solar incentives in Florida that you should know in order to maximize your investment.
Property Tax Exemption
In Florida a 100% property tax exemption is provided for residential renewable energy property as well as an 80% property tax abatement for non-residential property.
This means that when you purchase and install a solar or Battery storage system at your home, your property assessment will not change, and you will not be paying any additional taxes.
Solar and CHP Sales Tax Exemption:
The second state incentive for solar consumers in Florida is an exemption from paying use and sales tax on their solar panel systems.
The state’s 6% sales tax rate would not be added to your new Solar or Battery system cost.
