Florida, The Sunshine State, is unsurprisingly among the top states for home solar panel installation in the US. It's also a state where the average cost of solar installation is significantly lower than the national average.
There are numerous motivations people have for "going solar," but what about the timing? That's an important factor too. Below, we want to look briefly at both why to go solar and when to go solar in Florida.
What Are The Benefits Of Solar Installation For Homeowners?
Advances in solar panel technology, more widespread concern about fossil fuels and foreign energy dependence, and increased government and power-company based incentives have all combined to create a more favorable environment for the growth of solar over the last decade.
For homeowners, here are the most important ways in which solar installation can be beneficial:
When Is The Best Time To Install A Solar Energy System?
Do you need new roofing soon? If so, it's the perfect opportunity to upgrade your energy independence at the same time by going solar.
After all, most solar panels are installed on roofs (though some are ground-mounted), and solar installation would involve tearing off and/or reconstructing a portion of your roof anyway. Also, the savings you get month by month from your solar energy production will help you pay for the new roof!
If you can hire a single company to handle every aspect of both re-roofing and the solar installation project, then you will save even more money. Consider contacting Sheegog Contracting, located in the heart of sunny Central Florida for an estimate on both getting a new roof and installing solar panels and all accompanying equipment.
