Florida Solar Panel Law Passes Requiring Homeowners To Go Solar Now!

South Miami Florida’s solar panel law just passed on 7/18/2017 requiring new home builders and homeowners to install solar panels. The city commission and commissioner Josh Liebman approved it by a vote of 4-1 on Tuesday night. This law goes into effect Sept 18th, 2017.

For example: If you are planning on building a home in Miami Dade County or Broward County any time after September 18th, 2017, you need to install solar panels.

This also applies to residential remodels or renovations that expand the home by 75% or more.

For example: Let’s say you have a 1,000sqft home and want to add an additional 1000sqft addition, you would need to install solar panels because you are adding on a 100% increase to your home. You would only be able to increase your home by 749sqft without having to install solar panels.

Florida Solar Panel Law Rules

These new solar panel rules in South Miami state that:

  1. Any residential new construction home build will require 2.75kw per 1,000sqft of living space or 175sqft of solar panels per 1,000sqft of living space. If your home is built under trees, the shaded areas of your roof may be exempt from this rule.
  2. Home remodels, renovations or additions that replace existing or extend structure by more than 75% are required to install solar panels.

Not Everyone Agrees With The Vote

An article on NBC Miami stated that “poor residents will be greatly affected by the ordinance. Other opponents say solar panels should be a personal choice, not a mandate.”
