How Much Should I Expect to Spend for Solar Energy in Florida in 2020?
Updated: Sep 3, 2020
Did you know that in 2012, the average Floridian had an energy expenditure of $2,727 for the year? These levels were created by the combined energy consumption of transportation and residential power.
Power and energy normally used by consumers consist of gasoline, heat, and electricity. Not to mention, sources such as gasoline and petroleum used for transportation prove very costly given their economic demand (Department of Energy, 2014). With this amount of fossil fuel exhaustion, our planet is suffering from pollution caused by the emission and burning of such resources.
Therefore, as more energy is consumed yearly, proliferating prices of goods and utility bills, many individuals have sought energy efficient sources of power that are not only sustainable for the planet, but that are also more affordable with savings returns in the long run. One of these renewable sources of power is solar energy!
Solar energy is not only a clean form of energy derived freely from the Sun, but in the beautiful sunshine state of Florida, we have the second lowest solar cost per watt in the United States at a price of $2.69. While solar installation prices can range anywhere from $13,920 to $30,600, depending on the kilowatt system desired, there is a 26% federal tax credit that allows consumers to receive money back through rebates (EnergySage, 2020). Talk about a return on your investment!
