How Solar Works
The process of going solar in Sarasota

Step 3: Engineering – Send all designs and specifications to the engineer for final design. PE Stamps Structural & Electrical. VARIABLES: The engineers backlog can effect this timeframe
Step 4: Permitting – Apply for the permit with the proper municipality. VARIABLES: Each municipality has their own procedures and timeframe. We have no control over the length of time this takes. It can take from 1 week – 2 months.
Step 5: Schedule & Install – Once we have the permit in hand we will start the process of scheduling and installing your system. Variables: Other jobs in the schedule, material availability, weather.
Step 6: Final Inspection – We call in the inspections ASAP, timing is up to them

Solar Tax Credit
Good news! The solar panels Sarasota taxpayers are looking for just became even more affordable. The Inflation Reduction Act was signed into law in August of 2022. This congressional act extends the Investment Tax Credit (ITC) until 2032.
What this means is that if you install a photovoltaic energy system this year, you will receive a 30% tax credit for the total amount of the project.
This tax credit effectively reduces the cost of an average solar energy system by about $7,500 according to energy.gov. While this is not the same as cash, it is very close.
How does a tax credit work?
If the tax credit you receive is $7,500, what this means is that you can reduce the amount of taxes you must pay by that same amount. If you owe less than $7,500 for the year your solar energy system is installed, you can carry the remainder through to the next year.
