Solar PV Panel Systems
Orlando photovoltaic solar systems for home or commercial use, we’re the area leader in all kinds of solar panel installation. A photovoltaic solar system gives “no-cost” solar electricity from the sun. In fact, you’ll have the power company buying back electricity from you! Most Orlando area power companies encourage solar system owners to sell back extra energy. “Net-metering” allows power companies to off-set their peak energy times, and it puts money back into your wallet.
It’s the win-win Orlando solar energy solution. Orlando photovoltaic solar electric systems generate electricity directly from sunlight, with a huge potential. Current photovoltaic solar panel technology could supply all U.S. electrical needs by covering only one third of one percent of our country’s land area in today’s solar panels. With no moving parts, once they’re installed you get Orlando’s best solar power as long as the sun is shining. And we’ve installed more photovoltaic solar panel electric systems than anyone else in Orlando.

We’re happy to provide a written estimate, or to discuss your switch to a photovoltaic solar panel system that’s perfect for your home or for commercial use. We’ll do it in a language you can understand, and let you take all the time you need to decide on what’s best for you and your home or business.
Does Solar Increase The Value Of My Home?
Bet you don’t know that there is a home improvement investment that you can make that will increase the value of your home more than the investment cost. It’s not remodeling your bathroom (2% return). It’s not landscaping with a designer (break even). It’s not remodeling your kitchen (2% loss). It’s rooftop solar (43% return). Surprise!
A recent study by Lawrence Berkeley Labs clearly shows that your home’s value will increase much more than a rooftop system costs. “Selling into the Sun: Price Premium Analysis of a Multi-State Dataset of Solar Homes” found that a home’s value will increase based on the size of the rooftop solar system at the rate of $4/watt. So for a typical 5,000 watt system that costs $14,00 after the 30% Investment Tax Credit, a home’s value would go up by $20,000. This is a big deal for anyone considering solar as an investment.
But there is one catch: that $4/watt increase value only applies if the system is owned by the homeowner (unsecured and secured loans, as well as PACE loans). However, if there is a third party who owns the system (the case with leases and PPAs), the $4/watt valuation metric does not apply. It is also important to note that the study is based on home sale data from 2002 to 2013 when the average price of rooftop solar was higher compared to today’s average of $4/watt. Nevertheless, whether new home buyers want solar because of its “green cachet”, monthly savings, environmental benefits, or just poking their local utility in the eye — it is now clear that rooftop solar is a good home investment.
