The new DSIRE site will be available in the summer of 2014. Staff are currently working hard on the new DSIRE and are unfortunately only able to make minimal updates to the DSIRE website at this time.

  • $2.00/watt for the first 10 kilowatts (kW)

Systems may be larger than 100 kW, but incentives only apply to the first 100 kW of the system, with a maximum total incentive of $130,000 per customer. All systems must be at least 2 kW in capacity and certified by the Florida Solar Energy Center. In addition, all systems must be installed by a licensed contractor and connected to Progress Energy Florida's grid.
