"Sunshine State" in nickname alone, we have no state rebates for installing solar, nor do we have an SREC trading market. FL used to have some rebates funneled through the utilities if you installed solar, but you could only get into the queue in a 3 minute window open every 6 months. The rebate also required using an electrical contractor. The last time the queue was open, my utility botched the whole deal by opening the window 5 minutes early. The list was filled two minutes before the window was ever supposed to open to take names. After they corrected that botched "give away", I believe the utilities convinced the PSC that rebates are not cost-effective, because "the money (up to $15.5 million annually) benefits too few customers at the expense of all ratepayers".Seems a no -brainer to have solar in Florida, after all it is the "sunshine" state.
Valuman hit it on the head:
You would think, but the truth is that Florida has relatively poor incentives for solar PV.
Net Metering with FPL works as 1kW out = 1kW in at $0. Base metering fee is presently $7.57/mo.
