Solar Power

We’re your solar energy experts in Hernando! Our popular solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are an affordable renewable energy source. Plus, local and Federal incentive programs sweeten the deal even further. Solar Bear can help you decide if a solar PV system is right for you. We offer whole home energy audits to advise you of all the potential ways you could be saving money and energy.

Spray Foam Insulation

As members of the esteemed Attic Systems network, Solar Bear also provides spray foam insulation services across Hernando County and Florida. Without proper insulation, your cooling system is susceptible to harsh heat and sunlight. This makes your air conditioner work overtime, creating a need for more electricity and more money spent on high utility bills. Spray foam insulation can reduce your energy bill up to 45 percent!

Pair spray foam insulation with solar panel installation and you’ll be saving even more.


Save Thousands of Dollars

Adding solar panels to your home can bring huge monthly savings. Extend this to two decades, the length of a typical solar panel warranty, and this translates to over $50,000 for a home with a $175 monthly electric bill. That’s not taking into consideration the protection you get from the rising cost of electricity. Plus, solar leasing has made it possible for homeowners to go solar for little or no money down.

Low Payback Period

If you choose to pay in cash, the payback period is in many cases is 4-8 years. With great financing option – six to 18 months of no interest, no payments – or spread out the cost of the system up to 20 years, allowing you a financing payment less than your power bill!

Increase Your Home Value

Buying a home with solar panels translates into lower electricity costs. Solar panels will increase a home`s attractiveness on the market, similarly to homes with low property taxes, homes in top school districts, and homes with excellent Home Energy Ratings (a measurement of energy efficiency). A study conducted by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) concluded that homes with solar panels sell 20 percent faster and for 17 percent more money.

Take Advantage of Incentives

You will get 30 percent of total system costs back as a credit (equipment and installation). This means you will save $7,500 on a solar system worth $25,000. Combine this with state and local rebates, Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs), and total costs can be cut in half. Take advantage of incentives while they last!

Secure Investment

Utility companies have set the precedence of fluctuating and unreliable electricity prices. Electricity rates have a clear upward trend. With solar panels and simple math, we can calculate how much electricity will be generated, and most importantly, at what price, for at least the next 20 years (fixed energy costs).

Guaranteed Performance

Our solar panels come with a 30 year production warranty. We also offer a 25 year workmanship warranty and no-leak guarantee with our solar panel installations. The industry standard guarantees 80 percent performance after 25 years. The real lifespan of solar panels is much longer and will likely generate a good amount of electricity for 30-40 years.

Your Investment

What it costs to power your home with solar pales in comparison to the long-term savings, protection, and independence you get from adopting solar energy. With our no-money-down, low-interest rate financing, we help you go green without affecting your budget.

Let us help you reallocate the funds you were once wasting on your power bill and shift it to the payment of the equipment.
