Daytona Beach, Florida goes solar with SunPower®

Solar energy has a bright future at The World’s Most Famous Beach

The state of solar in Daytona Beach

Like most of the Sunshine State, Daytona Beach enjoys an above-average amount of sunshine at 230 sunny days per year.* Unsurprisingly, 90% of rooftops in the city are also solar viable, enabling most homes and businesses to go solar and take advantage of this clean and cost-effective energy solution.* The City of Daytona Beach is also getting behind solar power, having committed to transition to 100% clean energy in 2017.*

How much solar energy does Dayton Beach produce?

While Daytona Beach doesn’t track its solar capacity, commercial projects around the city offer insight into just how much solar power the area can produce.

Florida Power & Light Company (FPL), the county's electricity utility provider, has several projects in Daytona Beach, including a 2.1 MW rooftop solar PV system at Daytona International Speedway and six 3 kW solar trees.*

Avalon Park Group Management Inc. also closed a contract in early 2021 to build a massive 300+ MW solar farm along State Road 40.*

What are the advantages of going solar in Daytona Beach?

Along with clean energy, solar panels can also generate long-term electricity cost savings for homeowners. Most solar installations in Daytona Beach pay for themselves through lower electricity bills within 10 to 12 years. Since solar panels generally have a lifespan of 25-30 years, you could recoup your investment several times over and see nearly $19,000 in savings.*

When your solar system produces more energy than your household consumes, you can also take advantage of net metering to maximize your return on investment. Net metering allows you to send excess energy to FPL for a credit that can be used to offset any electricity usage from the grid.*

Beyond that, adding battery storage can offer increased energy security. It’s important to be prepared for the hurricanes and storms known for knocking out power in Daytona Beach. Battery storage provides safety and comfort during blackouts and other emergency situations without the noise, fuel costs, and emissions associated with traditional generators.*

How much does solar cost in Daytona Beach?

The cost of a home solar system can vary, even in the same city, due to a range of factors. These include:

  • Quality of the solar system

  • Roof shading

  • Roof type

  • Roof angle

  • Local weather

To help you understand the price of going solar in your area, we've analyzed SunPower price quotes, as well as quotes gathered by third-party sources for thousands of homeowners across the country.* In Daytona Beach, we found that the cost of purchasing a 5 kW solar system ranges from $13,400 to $21,750, or in other words, from $2.68 to $4.35 per watt. And that's before considering the benefits of any available tax credits or incentives.

New solar energy equipment, including panels, batteries, and pool heaters, are exempt from Florida sales tax and may qualify for a 26% federal tax credit.* Despite adding value to your home, a solar system won’t raise your property taxes, thanks to Florida's property tax abatement for renewable energy improvements.

What’s the best way to go solar in Daytona Beach?

The best solar solution for your home depends on your energy needs, budget, and the unique design of your roof and property. Clean energy isn’t the only goal. A solar installation can also increase the value and appearance of your home.
