Florida is a unique place to live with its beautiful beaches, diverse wildlife, and tropical climate. From the panhandle to the Florida Keys, there is a mixing pot of different people, languages, and cultures in Florida that you can’t quite find anywhere else in the world. However, despite any differences, Florida residents can all agree that it’s important to keep the air clean and the environment flourishing.
Florida is also one of the sunniest states in the nation, making solar a valuable asset for any homeowner. Let’s take a look at the benefits that Florida homeowners can take advantage of.
Net metering in Florida allows its residents to carry over any excess energy generation as a credit (at full retail rate) to your next bill for up to 12 months. At the end of 12 months, the utility company will pay you for any remaining excess energy.
All Floridians who put solar on their roof are exempt from sales tax as well as an increase in property tax from added home value.
Florida homeowners that make the switch to solar in 2022 qualify for the federal solar tax credit, or the ITC, which is equal to 26% of the cost of their solar system. This tax credit saves homeowners thousands of dollars on their system, and will be decreasing to 22% in 2023, so now is the time to go solar!
Less than 3% of the current U.S. population are enjoying the benefits & savings of solar energy. Our joy is knowing that our customers are saving money and reducing their carbon footprint. We want the same for you.
With the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) and local incentives, Florida residents are jumping at the chance to become a part of the renewable energy movement. We’re excited to help you throughout your solar journey and hope to help you make a positive impact on the environment while saving you thousands on your electricity bill!
Our Florida customers will save between $15,000 and $30,000+ over a 25-year period depending on the size of their system and their current home energy use.
We’ll send a solar professional to your home to review your utility bills. Our analysts will evaluate your bills and your roof to determine if you are qualified for maximum solar savings. If not, we won’t waste your time.
Blue Raven Solar customers deserve the best, so we offer only one level of quality: top-of-the-line.

At Blue Raven this is the heart of what we believe: our nation’s current power generation is not sustainable. As a nation, we still get over 67% of our electricity from the burning of fossil fuels.
Regardless if one believes in global warming or not, we can all agree that the toxic pollution that these carbon-based energy sources spew into the atmosphere is not a good thing. The simple test is this: would you like your family to live next to a coal-fired power plant?
Standard electricity is produced from fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas. When burned, these fuels emit chemical gases causing pollution and harm to our environment. Fossil fuels are not only destructive to the environment, but they are also a limited resource. Solar electricity is by far one of the cleanest forms of energy.
The customer experience sets Blue Raven Solar apart, and our solar team in Florida are some of the best.
Going solar in Florida is a process, and Blue Raven Solar makes sure that you are informed every step of the way. We work hard so that you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the savings. From sale to installation and energization, we’re working hard behind the scenes to keep the process moving along every day.
Before we start installing your solar panels, one of our solar panel experts will set up an initial meeting at your home to ensure you are a good candidate for solar energy. Our expert will also check the electrical status of your home and the condition of your roof. We examine the type of roof you have, the angle of your roof, shading on the roof, along with many other aspects, including your energy usage history, in order to make sure that your solar panel installation is as seamless as possible.
After we verify that you qualify for solar panel installation, our Florida solar design team will work with you to create a maximum efficiency plan for your home. We will be able to answer any questions that you may have about the solar panel installation process, Florida solar energy tax credits, or our unique financing options, including our industry-leading Blue Power Plus+. Once we decide which personalized financing option is best for your family, we will create and sign our solar panel installation agreement. We will also take care of all necessary permits at this time.
Our primary goal will always be to take care of our customers. We started this company with the goal of making solar energy accessible and affordable for the average homeowner, and that’s exactly what we intend to do. We want to continue providing you (the customer), with energy that protects the environment, saves you money, and improves the value of your home.
Our mission is to make homeowners’ lives better by reducing their energy bills, by increasing their reliance on clean and abundant renewable energy, and by providing a world-class customer experience through a reliable sales process and a speedy, high-quality installation.
With over 5,000 5-star reviews, the customer experience sets Blue Raven Solar apart from the rest of the solar industry.
“This was the fastest and easiest experience! They took care of all of the details and the whole process took just over a month! They answered all of our questions/concerns, and everyone one we worked with was knowledgeable. It made the whole process easy and worry free. We loved the installation crew as well. Even though the job wasn’t easier on our roof, they were fast and polite. They explained everything at the end, and walked us through everything. Overall, a wonderful experience!”
“I researched several solar companies before deciding on Blue Raven. It was pretty easy to tell which companies wanted to sell me system I did not need, or “upcharge” me for “extras”. When I spoke to the Blue Raven representative, I felt like he was being honest with me… I was impressed with Blue Raven’s ethical practices and straightforward pricing. After I signed the contract, I liked how Blue Raven I was kept in the loop with the progress of ultimately having a solar system installed on my home. I liked knowing when the final design was ready for approval, when the city permits were approved, when the utility company was ready to come out and change meters, and when installation of the system was ready to be scheduled.
The day of installation was very easy. The crew arrived in the morning and spoke with me about the final layout and walked me though where the equipment, including the power boxes would be installed. The crew showed me what they needed to do in the main circuit box and where the conduit lines would need to run. There were absolutely no surprises and I liked knowing beforehand where the conduit and power boxes would be located. Again, I appreciated the honesty and straightforwardness of the installation crew. The entire job was done by late afternoon. Before the crew left, they walked me though how the newly installed solar system worked, where the emergency shut off was located, and how to look in the box and see if the system was operating as it should with the connection light indicators. Blue Raven Solar has been a very easy company to work, with and I would highly recommend them to anyone considering installing a solar system.”
“From a knowledgeable solar consultant, to good communication with the company, to a great installation team I’ve been extremely happy with this entire experience. Any question I had was answered. I asked the installation team to accommodate my kids nap schedules and they did so happily. My system has not been turned on yet as I need to pass inspection but I’m excited to start using my system. And on the note of inspection, I was so happy that this company took care of the entire permit and inspection process for me! That is my lease favorite part to handle while dealing with improvements to my property.”
