Renewable energy incentives available in Florida


Florida has at least 101 policies or incentives that support energy renewables and efficiency, according to data obtained from the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE).

DSIRE is maintained by the North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center at North Carolina State University.

The center provides summaries of state and federal incentives, as well as those offered by U.S. territories, local governments, and electric and gas utilities.

Incentives can include tax incentives, grants, loans, rebates, industry recruitment/support, performance-based incentives, technical resources, feed-in tariffs, renewable energy credits, solar renewable energy credits and green building incentives.

DSIRE also contains information on rules, regulations and policies related to the incentives, including public benefit funds, building energy codes, appliance/equipment efficiency standards and energy standards for public buildings.

The database is limited to incentives and policies from only investor-owned utilities in the U.S., and electric cooperatives and municipal utilities with more than 30,000 customers.
