Save more with solar

For those who are interested in going solar, Green Panda Energy offers residents a no-cost energy assessment that helps us determine how much you’ll save by switching to solar. With a solar evaluation and energy assessment, we can also help you decide on the best solar panel configuration to adequately meet your electricity needs and overall budget.

What to Expect During a Solar Evaluation and Energy Assessment

A solar evaluation and energy assessment is a quick process that examines how much energy your household uses and how large of a solar power system you’ll need. Here’s what you can expect when a solar evaluation/assessment is conducted:

Home Energy Evaluation

To determine the right solar array for your home, it’s important to first find out how much energy your household consumes on a yearly basis, and whether you can pursue alternatives that bring down your overall utility costs. This information can be found in your utility bill, which provides your yearly kilowatt-hour (kWh) usage and your cost per kWh.

Having a complete overview of this usage amount is important as this will help in determining what size of solar panel system will provide adequate power to your residential property. Keep in mind that energy consumption varies between individual homes so no two households consume the same amount even if they are located in the same area. For purposes of accuracy, individual electricity bills can paint a more accurate picture of your energy needs.

At the same time, your electricity bill will also help us estimate your potential savings. Having solar panels can positively impact your utility costs in the long run.

If you want to look further into how you can save money on your electric bill, check your appliances and electronics, lighting, heating and cooling systems, and other fixtures to determine which among these are contributing to the bulk of your electricity consumption and costs. For instance, old appliances are likely to cause high utility bills since these models are not as energy-efficient as their modern counterparts. Not having proper insulation will also translate to higher electricity consumption, which may mean that larger solar panel systems are necessary to accommodate your cooling and heating needs, especially during summer and winter.

Solar Potential Evaluation

When evaluating your home’s potential for generating solar energy, it is important to know the basics of how solar power works. Solar panels are made of photovoltaic (PV) wafers or cells, which convert direct or scattered sunlight into solar energy. Thus, ideal sun and temperature conditions are necessary to maximize your solar panel system as the amount of power it generates depends on how much sunlight reaches it. Some factors that can affect your system’s maximum solar generation output are as follows: 

  • Surrounding shade: Homes that get more shade from surrounding trees or buildings may not be able to generate as much solar energy as its panels are intended to. You may have to consider hiring the additional services of a gardener or arborist if trees are getting in the way of your solar panels.  
  • Age of the roof: Old roofs are not ideal locations for solar panels since their structural integrity may not be able to support installation. A solar evaluation will help determine whether you need to first repair or replace your roof before considering solar system installation. If roof-work is necessary, Green Panda can help you partner with a vetted company to repair and/or improve your roof. 
  • Restrictions: Some neighborhoods or homeowners associations impose restrictions that prohibit households from installing solar technology. Fortunately, Florida has the Solar Rights Act in place, which forbids any kind of contract or binding agreement that denies residents their right to solar energy and installing solar paraphernalia on their property. 
  • Available space: Aside from your roof space, available ground space will also be factored in during a solar evaluation to see whether your house has enough room to accommodate not only solar panels or inverters, but also other electrical equipment required to operate the system. 


By evaluating these factors, we can determine the right size of solar energy system and setup to fit your home’s available space and external configuration. 

Budget Assessment

Your budget also plays a crucial part in our solar energy assessment and evaluation. Your financial capacity for solar panel installation will help us design an efficient system that can best serve whatever limitations or expectations you may have.

Cost of Solar Panel Installation in Florida

Speaking of budget, cost is often a concern for homeowners wanting to install solar panels on their property.

Despite the seemingly large upfront cost, the federal government offers tax incentives for residents who want to use solar. And, some states have net metering policy wherein residents can sell any of the excess energy they generate back to the grid.

Solar PV systems installed in 2020 and 2021 are eligible for a 26% tax credit. In August 2022, Congress passed an extension of the ITC, raising it to 30% for the installation of which was between 2022-2032. (Systems installed on or before December 31, 2019 were also eligible for a 30% tax credit.) It will decrease to 26% for systems installed in 2033 and to 22% for systems installed in 2034. The tax credit expires starting in 2035 unless Congress renews it.

With these rebates and incentives in place, the cost of solar panel installation can be slashed by several thousand dollars. Lowered utility costs alone will enable you to pay back the cost of solar panel installation in less time than you would think.

Why go solar?

There are many good reasons to install solar panels on your property.

One of the biggest advantages of solar energy is that it is a renewable and sustainable source of energy. Solar panels convert the energy from the sun into electricity, which means that they don’t produce any greenhouse gasses or pollutants.

This makes solar energy a clean and environmentally-friendly way to power your home.

Solar energy is a great way to take control of your energy usage. With solar panels, you can generate your own electricity and reduce your dependence on the grid.

Cost Savings

Solar panels can significantly reduce your electricity bills.

Environmental Impact

Solar energy is a clean and renewable source of energy that does not produce greenhouse gas emissions.

Property Value

Homes and businesses with solar panels can be more valuable in the real estate market.

Energy Independence

Solar panels allow you to generate your own electricity, reducing your dependence on the grid.

Tax Incentives

Tax credits and rebates, for homeowners and businesses that install solar panels.

Low Maintenance

Solar panels require very little maintenance, and most systems come with 25-year warranties.


Solar panels are built to last and can withstand extreme weather conditions.

Community Impact

Solar energy can have a positive impact on your community by reducing air pollution and lowering energy costs.
