What Florida’s New Solar Power Amendment Means For You

Solar Power Amendment

Florida voters recently passed Amendment 4, a constitutional amendment that will provide property tax breaks for homeowners and businesses that have solar panels installed.

The amendment passed with broad support of 73% of voters, and will expand the use of solar energy across the state.

What Does The Solar Power Amendment Mean For You?

The solar power amendment means you now have tax incentives for going green through solar power.

Tax Breaks

Your tax breaks for installing solar panels work in two ways. First, installing panels cannot be used in determining home value. This is useful because it means adding the value of solar panels to your home will not increase your property taxes.

Second, the solar power amendment removes Florida’s “tangible personal property tax” that was previously placed on solar equipment installed on properties.

Saving The Environment

In the Gainesville area, your AC is running around the clock most of the year. You can’t go without AC, but it does leave an environmental footprint. Making sure your unit is running at peak efficiency and getting it checked regularly helps decrease the impact from your home or business.

Installing solar panels is taking the next step toward reducing your environmental impact by using the abundant natural power of the Sunshine State.

Saving Money

Installing solar panels on your home used to be a dream for the future. Then it became available, but expensive. Now, solar energy is affordable for individuals and families.

When you save energy, you save money. Lower utility bills are just one of the ways solar power makes your home or business more economically sustainable, as well as environmentally sustainable.

If you’re planning on living in your home or working in your business long-term, Energy Informative calculates that the savings from the investment in solar energy currently takes no more than 10 years to break even.
