Solar Panel Installations Are Powering Tampa
The city of Tampa has decided: clean, safe and renewable energy is the future. Over the past year, Tampa has had hundreds of residential solar installations. Outdoor and nature loving residents want to keep the air and water clean and the environment flourishing. But there’s another reason people are installing solar panels systems. Tampa and surrounding area homeowners are saving big on utility bills.
Solar cuts down the amount you pay for electricity from Tampa Electric Company or TECO Energy. You produce the electricity your home needs and the surplus energy goes back into the power grid. Solar panels free up your hard-earned money to let you head down to the shore, never miss a day out on the water, and just do more of what you enjoy.
For the past 2 years, our Florida solar company has been part of the effort to help Florida go green. Between a federal tax credit, Florida income-tax deductions and other local Tampa incentives, solar has become a no-brainer for Floridians. Solar Tampa has greater net metering returns compared to locations outside of Florida, thanks to the sunshine.

Become Your Own Power Plant
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.
Tampa 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!

More and more Tampa residents are switching to clean, renewable energy and reducing their carbon footprint. But is solar right for your home?
Apart from your home or car, solar panels might be one of the biggest purchases that you will make. Going solar is also a process and can take anywhere from a few weeks to a couple months. That being said, switching to solar isn’t an “impulse buy” and requires a lot of research for many homeowners. Here are the reasons we think solar is worthwhile:
Eliminate Your Power Bill
The most popular reason to go solar is to eliminate your monthly power bill. By having your system sized correctly and owning your panels, you should produce enough electricity to cover the cost of your monthly bill. For the most part, homeowners with solar only have to pay a small monthly connection fee to stay connected to their utility provider.
Control the cost of Electricity
It’s no secret that electricity prices are on the rise. With every passing year, utility companies will continue to drive up prices and homeowners will have no way to get around the increased bills. To put this into perspective, over the last 20 years the price of electricity has gone up by more than 60%, and the U.S. Energy Information Agency projects that residential electricity prices will continue to rise by at least 1% a year over the next 5 years. So, even if your electricity usage doesn’t increase, your bills are still going to end up being more and more expensive. Going solar is a great way to combat rising energy bills, because your panels produce energy independent of the price of electricity.
Increase the Value of Your Home
Because solar becomes an integrated part of your home system, they immediately add value to your home. For many prospective home buyers, a house with solar can be a huge appeal and validate paying a little extra for a home. Who doesn’t love the idea of never having to pay more than $15 for their monthly power bill! All in all, most homeowners can increase the value of their home by 3-7% by investing in a solar system.
Reduce your carbon footprint
We all know that solar panels are part of the green movement, but how much do they actually impact the environment? The average residential solar system will offset energy produced by burning over 80 tons of coal or 175 tons of carbon dioxide in its lifetime. The energy generated is also equivalent to planting 4000 trees. So yes, solar panels make an impact. This advantage alone has caused tens of thousands of Americans to go solar!
Solar can become a source of income
In many states, net metering programs allows homeowners to sell back their unused electricity to utility companies for energy credits. These credits can be used during a less productive time of the year or be stockpiled to the point where the utility company will actually pay the homeowner for their unused credits. While these credits probably won’t add up to a substantial amount of money, it can be enough to make an impact on day-to-day life. All in all, there is no better feeling than having your utility company pay you after years of high-priced energy bills.
