Why Go Solar in Miami?
Miami is the most vulnerable city in the United States when it comes to climate change. Both sea-level rise and increased temperatures have already taken a toll on Miami and surrounding communities. In order for Miami to remain a vibrant, multicultural city for future generations, it is imperative that we take action to protect it now.
Going solar in Miami allows you to ditch your electric bill while leaving a smaller footprint on the planet. Instead of burning dirty fossil fuels for energy or relying on fragile and wasteful nuclear energy, you can power your home or business with the sun.
At Goldin Solar, we make it easy for you to save money on day one with $0 down. This is all possible due to Florida Power & Light’s net metering policies and federal and local incentives. The tax credit for going solar in 2020 is 26%, but act quickly, because this incentive is set to expire soon. Currently, Miami does not have other incentives for solar.
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 Miami for both roofing and solar. Shade can often be reduced by trimming trees.
Choosing a Solar Installer in Miami
Miami is a unique market for solar due to our low energy prices, strict building codes, and frequent power outages. These factors make it extra critical that you do your diligence and choose a reliable solar contractor that understands the intricacies of the Miami situation. You need to ensure your solar company uses solar panels with a high uplift rating for hurricanes, is familiar with the Miami building codes (the strictest codes in the country), and offers battery backup systems to ensure your solar array can power your home during a grid failure.

One of our favorite environmental organizations in Miami is VolunteerCleanup.org.
