How Do I Power My Home From the Sun?

As renewable and solar energy continue to gain global awareness one of the most common questions people have is:

"How Do I Power My Home From the Sun?"

The answer is with a Solar Electric Photovoltaic System.

Solar Electric Photovoltaic Systems, sometimes referred to as PV Systems, have many benefits:

    • Reduce your electric bill.
    • Take advantage of tax benefits and rebates.
    • Help our country become less dependent on fossil fuels.
    • And - Watch your meter spin backward (we never get tired of this!)

Be sure to learn all about Solar Electric Photovoltaic Systems on our Web Site, and visit our Learn More section to see the common questions people have as well.

The Most Common Question About Solar Energy

The most common question about solar energy deserves the right answer...

If you’ve ever asked yourself --

“Why isn’t there more solar energy used in Florida?” 

you’re not alone!

In the 35 years I’ve worked in the solar industry here in Florida, that’s the most common question I hear.

The question is often followed with some version of: “I guess it’s just still too expensive.”

It’s a good question, but the right answer requires you to dig a little deeper. So, instead of just agreeing and letting you off the hook, I’m inclined to reply: “YOU know why.”

Then, I wait and let you think a little while I nod my head and look directly at you with narrowed eyes and a slight smile. When I see you start to fog up, I continue, “It’s because the utilities and the politicians don’t want you to use solar energy.”

Oh, you say. It’s pretty obvious and no one ever disagrees.

Within the last couple months, though, we're fortunate enough to have some help from the top, and I'm excited!

You know in your heart we should be using the beautiful gift the sun gives freely to all. It defies logic and common sense that Florida ignores its natural beauty.

The frustration is always audible. Solar energy is so obviously good and right.

Here are a couple organizations trying to help the people get their fair share of solar energy:


Florida is the Sunshine State, after all, right?!
