How a Solar Energy System Works?
The solar panels convert sunlight to direct
current (DC) electricity
The inverter converts DC into alternating
current (AC) electricity
That power is then used by the loads or fed back into the grid. Power fed back to the grid is tracked and you receive credits

What Clients Are Saying
Backed by 14 years of solar installation experience FPS maintains an excellent reputation with clients and the solar industry.
I’ve been told that I’m highly critical (almost anal) and extremely demanding (I’m a New Yorker we’re like that) but I have nothing, and I mean NOTHING but the highest praise for your installers, Joe and Kyle. Pride in workmanship has become a rare thing, especially in Florida as I have found since moving here, but these guys are incredible! Now I feel like I got the best of both worlds – the best equipment and the best installation of that equipment. So, yes, you were right, it was worth the wait – put me in the HAPPY customer column.
Ray Strobel, Jacksonville
I was satisfied with the service that was provided on my house by Joe and the team. Very responsible, reliable, and honest person to work with. Worked in a timely manner and prompt with everything. Thank you for the service provided to us.

Joe at Florida Power Services installed a solar system on our roof almost two years ago – he was very professional during the entire process – we do not even know the solar panels are there – you really cannot see them – we know they are there because we get many months of only a $10 monthly bill from Duke Energy – that is the minimum fee amount per month. We generate more electricity than we use during the fall and spring, so we build up credits and in fact, last June and July when the TWO central air systems were working, we still only had $10 bills because we had so many credits. We would recommend (and have recommended Joe) to a number of folks – going green is a good investment and it is great for the environment! Both thumbs up!!
Tim McClain, St Pete Beach
Your install team was top notch!!! Fantastic experience and well deserving of accolades and commendations! The installation was clean, smooth, and professional. The team was approachable, respectable, friendly, and represented your organization well. I served as a field engineer for 15 years doing multi-million dollar capital equipment installs and would love to have people of their caliber on any one of my teams.
Jeremy Gerdts, Brooksville
Florida Power Services installed a 14.3KW PV solar system and a solar water heater. I”m very satisfied with the products installed, but most of all I am happy with the contractor and the installation. All of my questions were answered, they helped me with multiple forms for the power company. We have had a couple of quotes, these guys had the best price, but the product and installation was top notch. I have nothing but positive things to say about this company.
Fulviu Borcan, Clearwater
Florida Power Services did a first rate job on my solar panel install. The sale price was competitive, every step of the installation schedule was hit on time, the output has exceeded written estimates considerably. The solar panels have operated with out incident for eighteen months, I paid a fair price for a quality product that was professionally installed that has met & exceeded expectations. I would recommend Joe & FPS to anyone considering installing solar panels with out reservation.
David Hendry, St Petersburg
Just wanted to let you know the panels are working great. Got my first bill after being on for the entire statement and we accumulated 655 KWH extra. Also learned that the fpl bill still will be $7.57 each month for basic hookup service and the reserve power will be given in a check at end of year. They do not apply the reserve amount to a future bill. Thanks again for all the help and it’s much nicer paying a few bucks than $250.
Ben & Cori Rigney, Bradenton
Very pleased with the company and contact Joe Forest. Joe provided a good quote and held the project cost to his quoted price. After initiating the project, Joe found out the quoted solar panels were on back order. He sourced higher quality US made panels and even though they cost more, he kept to the original price. The installation went smoothly and quickly, passing inspection the first time. Throughout the project, Joe kept me informed and was very responsive. After the installation, Joe continues to offer advice.
Mike S, North Port
I hired Joe to put in a 11.75 kw system. I had some TECO rebates, which gives you only 90 days to get everything done. If your contractor runs behind on schedule, that is too bad and you can lose your rebates. Obviously that didn’t happen, otherwise I wouldn’t have written the ‘Excellent’ review. FPS was on time for every appointment. Joe got the work done right on schedule, and the system works great. The system has been live for almost 3 months and I estimate my payback will be about 4.5 years based on my own numbers...
Matt & Karyna, Lithia
My system has been live for over four years and my utility bills have been slashed in half. I have had zero problems with the system, and I’m estimating the system will have paid for itself in approximately four more years. Adding a solar system is an absolute no-brainer. And I can’t say enough good things about Joe’s professionalism and quality of service. I had a roofing problem that had nothing to do with the solar system, but it meant I needed Joe’s help after the sale temporarily removing some panels. He did a great job servicing the system and did not take advantage of the opportunity to nail me with a bill. This says a lot about how Joe stands behind his work. I would highly recommend Florida Power Services.
Troy & Suzie, Lake Wales
Working with Joe Forest & Florida Power Services was a pleasure, from our first meeting discussing my options, thru the system installation, inspections, & finally, the excitement of going on-line & producing my own power. Joe & his crew were true professionals & took the time to answer any questions that I had until I completely understood. Thanks again Joe & feel free to use me as a reference.
Alan, Anna Maria Island
Florida Power Services is a very professional company. The owner Joe, is very conscientious about the work performed. His crew is excellent,the work was completed on time, and Joe kept in contact before during and after installation. Upon completion the work area cleaned up. I would highly recommend this company.
Frank & Bernadette, Palm Harbor
I had a Solar Electric System installed by FPS and it was completed in Early December 2011. We are very satisfied with it, it has been producing anywhere from 13 to 16 kW a day as long as it isn’t cloudy and Joe had said to figure only about 10 to 12 in the winter so its better than I expected. I really appreciated Joe going the extra mile to help me get all the paperwork straightened out with Progress Energy, there were a lot of hoops to jump thru. Thank you again Joe for everything.
Jim & Clovine, St. Petersburg
When I decided to hire FPS Solar for the install I knew I was dealing with the actual owner/installer and not some salesman just looking to make his commission. I would be happy to recommend FPS Solar to anyone looking to go GREEN. Just ask Joseph for my contact info.
Joe at Florida Power Services is a top class installer. He is a state certified Solar Contractor and has a Florida Solar Energy Center certifications. He has helped me with my installations for my own firm for about 2 years now and I have never had a single complaint from a customer ever. All of his systems pass inspection every time and are very aesthetically pleasing.
Excellent experience with our 7.2 solar system install. Right from estimating the job to completing the final rebate application Joe was professional, courteous and prompt. FPS bid was also one of the best in the local Tampa market but they did not compromise service. Highly recommend.
Ravi, Apollo Beach
