Solar energy has been making its way across every industry. Commercial solar installation has expanded far beyond the typical urban areas and now are making way into rural and agricultural communities. This land is beneficial because the land is abundant and the owners can lease their land to create clean, pollution-free solar energy. At SEM Power we specialize in ground-mounted solar panels. We take pride in being one of the best solar companies in Florida.


Ground Mounted Solar Farms

Even though community solar farms provide many environmental benefits such as reducing carbon dioxide emissions and pollution, it is not uncommon for communities to have concerns about the environmental impact these projects will have. In practice, early in the development stages, the potential impact on the immediate environment is assessed, and appropriate mitigation measures are planned.


Solar installers work closely with the local and, in some cases, federal Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) to assess a project’s impact and get proper permitting. The environment is considered at every stage when building and operating a solar energy system. As we work through permitting and planning, we stay closely engaged with the landowners, attend local public meetings, and work within the community to address their concerns.


It Is Time To Plan For Ground Mounted Solar Panels

What site will work best? The very first step in the process is to perform an assessment from a topographic and geographic perspective. You must look at the condition of the soil, site conditions, flood plain location, presence of wetlands, and any habitats that may take place on the site. There must also be a consideration for access to the site and sight lines for nearby roads and neighboring property owners. Choosing the best site is important. Keep in mind that the systems will be operating for 20-25 years.


After the site and planning are complete, it is now time for the permit. There are various environmental reviews and discretionary permits that the local AHJ may require to move forward. In addition, we handle applications for town planning approvals and zoning permits, wetlands delineation, visual impact assessments, glare studies, archaeological studies, engineering reports for FEMA flood zones, findings from bat studies or other US Fish & Wildlife studies.


Next comes site preparation. Remember the point is to stay environmentally conscious. We work with the natural contours of the land to minimize grading. We don’t pave over farmland to install solar projects. Vegetation is typically just trimmed back so as not to shade the panels and impact the solar power generation.

I rarely write reviews, and to be frank, a company needs to be very bad or they need to be extraordinary to get me to post anything. In the case of SEM Power, the word EXTRAORDINARY is the right word. Although I installed approximately 112 solar panels about five years ago, Hurricane Irma required a new roof, and in doing so, those 112 solar panels had to come down and then reinstalled back in place. Because I was able to reconfigure my solar pool heater in a different location, it allowed me the ability to add another 12 or so panels. In doing so, my billing from FPL has gone from $650 per month five years ago to $8 today. Yes, $8!!! Hard to believe, but solar is incredible. In addition to a reinstall, the software needed to be able to see and control the daily use of power has been challenging, only because an outside vendor supplies the equipment and software. That said, SEM Power has been by my side to get this resolved multiple times due to no fault of their own. This is a tribute to a great organization that I feel was a great decision on my part. If you choose solar, give them a call. I was 110% satisfied!!!

I have been researching solar companies for a year or more and recently went with SEM Power. Today is install day. The crew showed up on time and were ready to work. I am impressed with the respect and work ethic the three gentlemen have doing the install. They are quick with the "Yes sir, no sir" and took the time to show me the workings of the power inverter panel installed on the side of my house. The lead worker explained the process to me of what would be taking place during the install. Michael Barger, the salesman kept me apprised of the items to follow, the inspections, Fpl meter swap and final testing. I am glad I went with SEM Solar and reccomend them to all.

Fantastic company fantastic experience! I have had solar for 2 years now and save at minimum half of my old Duke power bill every month. This company has excellent follow up and very responsive to calls! I love looking at the app they have hooked up to the system to monitor my savings! Thank you SEM!!

I have had the opportunity to interact with the personnel of SEM Power regarding some equipment issues with my solar panel system and found their response to be professional on a personal and technical level. They went the extra mile to assure me that I understood the nature of the issues and their satisfactory resolution of same. I am quite satisfied with their continue willingness and efforts to make sure that their system is performing as advertised to my satisfaction.
