If you’re looking to go solar in 2021, then solar tax incentives in Florida can help with the installation costs. But, you need to act fast – both to gain solar tax credits and to avoid volatile solar equipment price increases.

Here’s why you need to lock in pricing now:

Solar Tax Incentives in Florida 2021

Solar tax incentives in Florida are fantastic for anyone installing new solar panels and batteries in 2021. Regardless of how much your solar installation costs, they will save you thousands of dollars.

This year, you can save 26% thanks to solar tax incentives in Florida. That’s the equivalent of $7,800 on a $30,000 installation.

The Time to Act is Now!

But time is always running out. Each year the solar tax incentives in Florida drop. By 2023, it will be 22% and in 2024, 0%!

There is no guarantee the recent extension to solar tax incentives in Florida will happen again. Solar tax credits have been slashed for years – it was 30% back in 2019.

We’ve had many customers regret delaying back in 2019, as they pay far higher now. Make sure you’re not one of them. Act now and save thousands of dollars.

Solar Equipment Price Rises!

COVID-19 has been reaping havoc on the solar power industry too – and that has had a knock on effect on customers.

Key materials, panels and shipments have all been delayed since the start of the pandemic leading to high competition in the U.S.

That’s caused prices to rocket and customers forced to either face long waiting lists or pay over the usual price.

The fear now is that solar equipment prices are forecast to rise again this summer!

Glass Shortage Crisis

Countries like India and Australia are already feeling the heat, as China faces a worrying glass shortage. That’s caused glass prices to rise by 71% since July 2020 and we could be about to see the same situation this year.

Some forecasts suggest the solar industry could be 20-30% short of glass until summer 2022 – so act now to avoid these rising costs!

Problems in the manufacturer of modules have also caused rising costs throughout the industry.

Make Sure You’re At the Front of the Queue!

With COVID-19’s impact on everyday life hopefully reaching its conclusion soon and people ready to return to spending their earnings and stimulus checks, there is likely to be a queue for solar power installation.

With Florida Power Services, we’re well-stocked to serve your installation in 2021. But we urge you to act fast and avoid the competition we expect later.

Being stuck on a waiting list could see you miss out on 2021’s solar tax incentives in Florida, and the same goes for 2022. Whether you’re a homeowner or a commercial property owner, being at the front of the queue could be the difference between spending thousands of unnecessary dollars and saving thousands.
