What is Boca Raton Famous For?
Boca Raton is known as one of the most luxurious cities in the United States. Boca Raton is 44 miles north of Miami in Palm Beach County. The city is home to 100,000-300,000 residents, depending on how you count them. Since its rapid expansion in the early 20th century by Addison Mizner, Boca Raton has been a destination for vacationers and part-time residents seeking a winter oasis. The name “Boca Raton” is commonly misunderstood and translated from Spanish to English as “rat’s mouth” or “mouse’s mouth.” However, “Boca” in this usage more accurately translates to “inlet,” while “Raton” either refers to jagged rocks or pirates. Like much of coastal Florida, Boca Raton is a destination for its natural features, such as beautiful beaches and rivers. Boca Raton is also home to Florida Atlantic University.
Why Go Solar in Boca Raton?
As a Boca Raton home or commercial building owner, going solar can help you support local jobs, a cleaner environment, and save you money each month. This extra financial freedom can help you find more time for leisure, shopping, and exploring nature.
At Goldin Solar, we make it easy for you to save money with solar on day one with $0 down. This is possible due to Boca Raton utility Florida Power & Light’s net metering policies and federal and local incentives. The federal tax credit for going solar in 2020 is 26%, but act quickly, because this incentive is set to expire soon. Boca Raton residents can also take advantage of solar’s exemptions from sales and property taxes here in Florida.
Is Solar Right for Me?
You can determine if solar is right for you by answering a few easy questions:
- Do you own your home?
- Is your roof in good condition?
- Does your roof receive sunlight during the day?
- Do you like saving money?
If you answered “yes” to these questions, continue your solar journey by learning how solar works in Florida.
If not, you can take steps to increase your eligibility for solar. A roof can be replaced under the same contract as a solar installation, since Goldin Solar is licensed in Boca Raton for both roofing and solar. Shade can often be reduced by trimming trees.
Choosing a Solar Installer in Boca Raton
Boca Raton is a unique market for solar due to low energy prices, strict building codes, and frequent power outages. In addition, many residents are seeking luxury, custom, or new construction installations. These factors make it extra critical that you do your diligence and choose a reliable solar contractor that understands the intricacies of solar in Boca Raton. You need to ensure your solar company uses solar panels with a high uplift rating for hurricanes, is familiar with the Boca Raton building codes, and offers battery backup systems to ensure your solar array can power your home during a grid failure.
