Ocoee is a community on the western side of Orange County that has a history dating back to the late 1800s. It was the first commercial citrus nursery in the United States and flourished as a citrus producing area well into the 1920s. Over the past 100 years, the city has continued to grow and has a variety of older and brand-new housing developments which makes it a great location to go solar.
Solar energy is the radiant light and heat generated from the sun that is absorbed using large, solar panels made of photovoltaic cells (PV). These panels then channel the energy using a converter that ‘converts’ the electricity from DC to AC current that is used to power your home. Depending on how many PV panels are on your home and given that Ocoee receives nearly year-round sunshine, you can generate enough electricity to power your AC unit, water heater, kitchen appliances and your swimming pool!

Even though we’re the Sunshine State, it’s no secret that Florida is susceptible to inclement weather including heavy thunderstorms and hurricanes. It is a common misconception that solar panels will not hold up in bad weather. Solcium Solar uses mechanical flashing techniques and equipment that is approved by the Miami-Dade County hurricane rating system to withstand winds up to 160mph. Plus, when partnered with a battery backup system, you can keep your whole home powered, even when the grid goes offline!

The recent Inflation Reduction Act which passed in 2022 allows Ocoee homeowners to subtract 30% of your solar panel installation costs off your federal taxes until 2032. This credit was extended and enables you to save not just on solar panel installations, but the cost of solar battery storage, PV cells for attic fans, and labor costs.
State sales tax? Not on solar! Florida has a permanent 6% sales tax exemption on solar energy systems. Not to mention, Florida also has a property tax abatement as well which states that 100% of the added value from your solar energy system will be exempt for residential homes.
