Top Reasons Why Local Florida Solar Companies Are Often Best

If you’re ready to invest in a Florida solar installation, then congratulations! You’re on the way to saving thousands of dollars.

If you’re ready to invest in a Florida solar installation, then congratulations! You’re on the way to saving thousands of dollars. But next, you’ll need to decide which Florida solar company to use. Which is best? Here’s a look at why choosing your local Florida solar installation company will pay off:

Local Solar Company or Tesla?

That’s probably the first question that comes to mind. Understandably so. Tesla’s marketing has made them a household name across the world. Their owner has his hand in cars, solar roofs and even space rockets. But, in our opinion (and our customers’) that doesn’t make them the best Florida solar company. Here’s why:

1) Better Warranties

Local providers such as Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” offer a 25-year warranty on all equipment including end phase inverters (10 year on the installation). While Tesla Solar offers just a 10-year comprehensive warranty.

Tesla’s 25-year warranty only covers the panels. So solar inverters, batteries, roof mountings and leaks repairs will all have to come out of your pocket after ten years! Yikes!

If you go local with Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company”, you could save thousands of dollars in repairs over the next 25-years as we take care of our customers like we always have done. We care.

100% Guarantee

Go local and you’ll also get a 100% guarantee. That’s because local Florida solar companies are confident about their ability to perform to a high standard AND because, once again, they care. They don’t want to see you left out of pocket with a flawed solar system.

2) Local Florida Solar Companies Are Often Cheaper

We could list hundreds of reasons why local might be better than big-name solar providers, but obviously, a major consideration is always the price.

According to a study by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), larger solar installers were shown to give a higher quote than smaller, local installers 70% of the time. Those quotes were 10% more on average too!

“Large installers offered a higher quote price than a corresponding non-large installer in about 70% of pairings.”

We always advise you to consider your local Florida solar company and ask them for a quote. Who knows, maybe you’ll save thousands?

3) No Middlemen

When you go local for your Floria solar installation, you avoid frustrating communication issues. Big multinational companies are known for having call centers or, worse, online no-reply systems.

We’ve seen countless reviews of other companies where the customers are left with significant problems (even leaking roofs) and problematic customer service.

As a local solar provider, we pride ourselves on making customer needs a priority from start to finish – and beyond!

You’ll always speak to a human. Our owner speaks directly to you about your solar vision and never hands your over to an external sales team. You’re always in direct contact with the people completing the work.

That saves you time, energy and potentially dollars when it comes to problems and repairs.

4) Custom Designs that Fit Your Home

For local Florida solar companies like us, quality is more important than quantity. We care about making every Florida solar installation a success. Some other companies sometimes compromise on the smaller details to move more sales.

We avoid cookie-cutter approaches and design solar systems for your vision, bringing:

  • Durability
  • Aesthetics
  • Optimized energy output.
  • Fully off-grid systems, which many big names can’t provide.

5) You Won’t Get Oversold.

Say you want a roof of solar panels? That doesn’t necessarily mean you want an entirely new roof built, right?

That’s exactly why we only build and charge for what you want. So, you don’t waste thousands on a solar roof featuring an entirely new roof that you didn’t actually want or need.

6) You’re Helping Your Community

When you opt for your local Florida solar company rather than a massive international billionaire back company, you’re helping your community with:

  • A greener local community with fewer carbon emissions
  • More jobs
  • Helping to maintain the American dream in your community
  • Backing a company that has been serving locally for nearly two decades, to continue.

As a local Florida solar company, we’re facing heavy competition these days from big-name companies. But thanks to local Florida residents, we’re still here, making homeowners and businesses in our community greener and happier year by year.

Plus, that money you spend locally gets injected back into the community because we live here. It’s spent locally, not sent to some billionaire’s pockets.

7) Dedicated Solar Installation Crews

Local Florida solar installation companies don’t use external contractors. So, you know that the team that turns up is:

  • The same team that you’ve read all the reviews about.
  • Highly, trusted and experienced.
  • Not out-of-town, part-timers.
  • They have solar knowledge.
  • Reports directly back to their boss

Those last two points are important. Many bigger companies use teams of roofers or contractors who actually know very little about solar. Local teams do. They’ve been on the job for years, not just drafted in to fill vast demands.

Reporting back to the boss also creates a level of accountability that simply doesn’t exist with national companies. In fact, with Florida Power Services, our owner visits your property and is often on-site during the work.

8) We Understand Your Local Area

Every neighborhood and town has its own unique challenges. That might not seem important when it comes to solar installation, but you’d be surprised.

We’ve worked throughout Florida on all kinds of roofs and know the demands of different tile and shingle types.

Because of our experience, we ensure the most suitable materials are used and the setup is perfect for optimizing the sun’s rays in your area.

We also think about potential storms and wind speeds. National solar companies are cookie-cutter setups that often ignore the demands of each location.

9) Local Often Has Better Ratings

Simply put, take a look at our ratings compared to Tesla Solar. 4.48 vs 2.88 (out of 5 stars).

Why? Because we have a reputation to uphold that is built upon caring about people like you. If you use a bigger company, you’re just a drop in the ocean to them. So when things go wrong, it might not be as big a deal as it is to us.

10) Local Often Use the Best Materials

We also use materials and components of the finest quality, to ensure your solar roofs is: A) Running optimally and B) Less likely to hit problems and need repairs.

In the long run, that saves you thousands of dollars through better energy performance and less repairs once your 25-year warranty is expired.

11) Affordable and Up-front Pricing

The best local Florida solar companies will offer ways to help you maximize your savings! We offer no money out-of-pocket solar loans at .99%, for example.

The solar company should always be honest about costs and never tack on extra charges. It’s well documented that big companies have made sudden price changes. We don’t do that.

Now Is The Time to Act! – Save Thousands of Dollars

If you’re interested in a Florida solar installation, now is the time to act.

That’s because this year you can save 26% through solar tax incentives in Florida. On a $30,000 installation, that would be $7,800!

Why act fast? Because those incentives are dropping year by year. By 2024, they’ll be 0%!

In recent years, we’ve seen many customers regret not acting fast enough to make those savings. You can read out in-depth here to see if you’re eligible for 2021 Solar tax credits in Florida.

Our Solar Warranties Are 15 Years Longer Than Tesla’s!

Tesla’s Elon Musk might be the richest man on earth, but Tesla’s home solar warranties are 15 years shorter than Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” warranties.

Tesla’s Elon Musk might be the richest man on earth, but Tesla’s home solar warranties are 15 years shorter than Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” warranties.

Here’s why our 25-year solar warranties can save you thousands of dollars for 15 years longer than Tesla:

How Long Are Tesla Solar Warranties?

While Tesla Solar offers just a 10-year comprehensive warranty, we offer 25 on all equipment and 10 years on installation related defects!

That’s over double. That could save you thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars!

If you choose Tesla and in 11 years your solar system starts malfunctioning, or your batteries aren’t working – the cost of repairs will come out of your pocket.

Note that Tesla offers a 25-year warranty on panel performance only. Solar inverters, batteries, roof mounting and more are only limited to 10 years.

Elon Musk has even said Tesla suffers from quality control issues in recent months because their rate of production demands are getting out of hand.

With Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company”, we’ll take care of your solar system for over two decades! While Tesla users pay extra for new panels and repairs, we’ll be here – saving you money.

Our 100% Guarantee

At Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company”, we offer a 100% money-back guarantee if you’re not happy with your installation.

That’s because we know our high-quality craftsmanship has been trusted by Florida residents for 17 years. From customer service to installation quality, we won’t let you down.

Tesla Outsources Their Installation Teams

Unlike the Tesla empire, we’re real people. 

They hire outside teams to come in and do the job for them. That means you never know what team or quality of staff is going to turn up.

Often outside contractors have little to no solar knowledge (the majority of them are previous roof installers, not solar installers), which can cause costly change orders, miscommunication, ignorance or lengthy delays.

Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” Has a Dedicated, Local Team

Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” has a dedicated, trusted team of engineers and craftsmen that have worked alongside our owner for years. We have a reputation to uphold and a place in the local community that Tesla’s money can’t buy.

From our installation team to our phone line, it’s all in-house – no outside marketing teams and only people we trust. We’re also a NABCEP, FSEC and Florida State Certified Installer.

Tesla Has Eliminated Their Sales Team

Tesla has also gone 100% online, so you’re unlikely to talk to a real person. You won’t be able to speak with them about your solar dream in the same way. Even if you want a phone call, customers have reported monthly long waiting calls and call center staff.

We care about our customers and speak to them as real people. We listen to your solar dream and how we should design the installation based on your home and your tastes.

When problems arise, you can reach our office at any time and talk it over. We make things stress-free for everyone, so you can enjoy the experience of going solar!

Does Tesla’s Solar Roof Make Financial Sense to You?

Many of our new customers mention that they’ve been considering Tesla’s solar roofs. They look great and will gain you curb appeal, but the reason many people stick with our traditional solar panels is that it makes more sense financially.

Solar roof installations require you to build an entirely new roof AND install solar.

If you have no need for a new roof, you risk getting upsold on a product you didn’t even have eyes on in the first place.

With Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company”, we can install regular solar panels without the need to redesign your roof. We’ll install long-lasting roof mounts and brackets without disturbing what’s below.

Solar Roofs Generate Less Energy

So if the solar roof is more expensive than solar panels, surely it generates more electricity… right? Well, no.

Infact, Solar roofs only generate 70% of the energy solar panels can. That’s because although it’s a roof, it’s a mix of both solar and non-solar tiles. Whereas solar panels take up less space, but are more efficient.

If You Want Solar – Act Now for Federal Tax Credits

Florida’s Solar Tax Incentives will save you thousands of dollars if you start your installation in 2021. This year, you will save 26% – that’s the equivalent of $7,800 on a $30,000 installation!

By 2023 Federal Tax Credits will drop to 22% and 0% in 2024!

But we advise you to get started and lock in that price fast! Delays and COVID issues are potential stumbling blocks that we saw cost customers thousands last year – don’t delay, don’t regret – get eligible for the credits soon!

We Have the Fastest Turn-Around in Florida!

If you need a Florida solar installation, then get it done fast with Florida Power Services. From permitting to the final city or county inspection, it should take us no longer than three weeks!

Many companies take up to 6 months or more, which could see you miss out on 2021’s 26% federal tax credits.

But if you go with us, you’ll be eligible for that AND be saving money

every day, thanks to your new, clean energy machine.
