Ocala Solar Energy: A “Dear John,” Letter
Look — it’s been fun. Real fun. You’ve helped keep the lights on, the house cool, and the pool heated. Well, usually.
And that’s where the problem is.
When we started out, there really wasn’t much of an option for anything, or anyone, else. But, as Bob Dylan once said – these times, they are a’changin’, and we in Ocala are changing toward solar energy.
There’s a new powerhouse in town, and we can’t deny our attention or affection to it any longer. It’s…it’s Sunpro Solar.
You may have heard of Sunpro before, and we never thought we’d have feelings for another – but, we’ve begun to see why it would be best for us if we just went our separate ways.
Sunpro actually communicates with me.
They’ve told us Florida ranks 4th in the nation for solar power. That there’s enough solar power here to power over 687,000 homes.
They also said Ocala itself gets 233 days of sunshine. With the price of going solar dropping 45% over the last 5 years – we in Ocala are a perfect match for solar panels.
What’s more is I can’t control you, electric company. I never could.
But going solar makes that easy. With programs like net metering, my meter can actually run backwards and those savings can go back into my pocket. (We’ll explain that later)
We hope you find happiness with someone else. But, for us in Ocala, we’re going with the best in the solar panel business, and we won’t be looking back. Solar energy offers us control, consistency, savings, and protection.
You just offer us…well. We’re sure you can figure it out.

Solar Ocala FL: Why You Should Switch to Solar Energy
Before we discuss more about net metering and what other incentives there are for switching to solar in Ocala FL, here’s just a few of the reasons why you should consider solar panels.
Ready to make the switch? If you’re concerned about how going solar in Ocala might affect your budget, we’re about to break down the financial incentives of owning solar panels in Ocala FL.Start Saving Today
Solar Incentives for Ocala, FL
There are a lot of incentives for going solar if you live in the state of Florida. Besides all the sunshine that keeps your home powered throughout the day, solar panels are a wise investment. Here’s why.
Net metering gives the power back to homeowners in Ocala. It allows them to sell back the excess power generated by their solar panels to where it came from AND it can credit their accounts.
Those credits can also come in handy when the sun goes down at night, or if you have a particularly cloudy day (and don’t have a backup battery,) homeowners can utilize those credits and not come out-of-pocket for power used.
When’s the last time you had that kind of control with your electric company?
The Investment Tax Credit (ITC)
The ITC, or solar tax credit, will reduce the cost of residential solar panel arrays by 26%. 26% of the ENTIRE purchase of home solar panels (backup batteries included) will be given right back to Ocala homeowners as a tax credit from the government the following year.
This tax rate is available until the end of 2022, but then is reduced to 22% in 2023, and beyond that, it will go away completely. So, if you’re looking to get the biggest bang for your buck, you may want to consider going solar in Ocala sooner rather than later.
Solar Panels Increase Home Value in Ocala
Even the experts agree! In two separate studies by the Department of Energy and Berkeley Laboratory and US Department of Energy and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the evidence was clear.
On average, solar panels add $20 of value for every $1 you save on your electric bill. So if you saved $200 a month on your electric bill with solar panels, you’d have an additional $4,000 of value added to your home.
In addition, homes with solar panels on average got a higher asking price than those without. About $4/watt, which comes out to be around $15,000 for residential, depending on your home and solar system.
Solar panels can help your property spend less time on the market. In another study done by NREL, they found that solar properties earned about 17% more at closing as well as selling 20% faster.
What all this means: Solar panels add value to homes in Ocala, FL. In addition, residents won’t have to pay additional taxes on the added value of having solar panels installed to their homes.
Sales Tax Exemption
Another thing to not pay for in Ocala! Not only will you get more money for your home due to the increased value, but even BEFORE that, you won’t have to pay the sales tax on your new solar array (and batteries, if you choose.) Think about how many flights you can get at Corkscrew Winery with an extra 6% to spend!
The Florida Solar Rights Act
Florida Statute 163.04 forbids any binding agreement between HOAs or otherwise to prohibit a property owner from installing solar panels. Period. They can try to tell you where on your roof to put them (maybe the HOA doesn’t want them to be in plain view,) but if their desired location or requirements doesn’t meet an orientation to the south or within 45° east or west of due south, they cannot stop you from installing solar panels on your roof that provide the highest efficiency for you.
Protection During Outages with Solar Energy in Ocala, FL
Another great reason Florida residents are switching to solar energy is the benefits of feeling secure when disasters such as hurricanes strike. With a solar panel battery backup like the Tesla Powerwall or Enphase Encharge, you’ll be protected during any type of outage, including major disasters. Be sure to ask your Solar Sales Specialist about adding a home battery backup to your installation.
