Federal Tax Credit for Homeowners with Solar
Also known as the Solar Investment Tax Credit, this federal program was meant to help more people go solar.
Homeowners can get 26% of the original cost of their solar panel system as a tax credit. This makes the overall cost of installing solar panels easier to manage from the get-go.
However, his solar tax credit won’t be around forever. After 2022, the tax credit is reduced to 22%, and will be phased out for residences in 2024. So if you’re considering going solar in Fort Myers, you’ll want to act sooner rather than later.
Solar Sales Tax Exemption for Fort Myers Homeowners
The state of Florida generously provides a Sales Tax Exemption for the purchase of solar panel systems. The current 6% sales tax rate may not seem like much, but that extra tax can add up on a purchase like solar panels. Thankfully though, you don’t have to worry about it when you purchase solar panels in Fort Myers, or anywhere in Florida!

Florida Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Loans
The Florida PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) Funding Agency provides financing to residents looking to make energy efficient improvements to their home. Many homeowners in Florida, including the Fort Myers area, have used PACE to finance improvements such as roofing, windows, air conditioning, and of course solar panels.
PACE financing is available to cover 100% of the total cost of the upgrades. That means that your savings and personal funds can stay saved and personal. The Program providers typically require that the contractors show proof of certification and licenses. This is to ensure the project is being done according to the highest standards.
Unlike other loans, you do not pay for PACE monthly. Rather, you make the payment through your property taxes. This increase to your monthly property taxes should be something to seriously consider. If you ever plan to sell your house, the high property tax may dissuade potential buyers.
But if you plan on staying in your home for the long-term, PACE may be great for you. It adds both property value, and helps you be as energy efficient as possible. Before deciding whether to apply, be sure to do plenty of research to make sure this is the right program for you.
