How Can We Help You?

The first community solar program in Northwest Florida

Gulf Solar Energy Share is a new, more affordable way you can support renewable energy without the expense of rooftop solar panels.

Gulf Power’s commitment to provide renewable energy is a top priority. All of us shop for products and services with “costs” that make the most sense. But more and more of us are placing a higher value on a product’s actual value. Fair trade, organic, ethically sourced and renewably powered.

Questions?


How does Gulf Solar Energy Share work?

  • For only $99 per year, your subscription means approximately 750 kilowatt-hours of energy from our Gulf Solar Energy Share facility will flow to the power grid. This energy will displace energy which would have otherwise been produced by our power plants. 750 kilowatt-hours is enough energy to power five laptops in a year!
  • Sign up for a five-year subscription, and it’s only $89 a year.
  • For every subscription, we’ll also credit your electricity bill (currently projected between $2 and $2.50 each month per subscription based on 2016 estimates).
  • Some of you are interested in more than one subscription. Gulf Power employee and customer, Lonnie, has committed to three subscriptions — one for each of her three children! "I want them to know I am investing in their future and our family is committed to renewable energy," said Lonnie. "Some things aren’t about the cost. It’s about what we invest in for our future." Join Lonnie and join the growing list of Gulf Solar customers — pioneers in clean, renewable energy. Sign up today!
  • It may be 2017 before Gulf Solar Energy Share is operational. Developing Northwest Florida’s first community solar program takes time as Gulf Power’s renewable energy team works to refine the program for our customers.

How do I participate?

  • All Gulf Power residential, business, and industrial customers will be eligible to participate. The program has two components, an annual subscription fee and a monthly bill credit. The bill credit gives participants a credit on their bill for the value of the energy produced by the solar facility.
  • A subscription fee will appear as a line item on your bill once the solar facility is operational. All that’s required is an annual subscription charge — there are no installation fees or equipment maintenance costs. Customers who agree to a 5-year commitment (Participation Agreement required) will receive a discounted subscription of $89.
  • It may be 2017 before Gulf Solar Energy Share is operational. Developing Northwest Florida’s first community solar program takes time as Gulf Power’s renewable energy team works to refine the program for our customers.
  • At the conclusion of the first year of enrollment, you will automatically be enrolled for the following year and charged your annual $99 fee per subscription unless you provide a 30-day notice of your desire not to participate.
  • Program subscriptions will be limited to a solar facility up to one megawatt in size, which will be owned and operated by Gulf Power in Milton, Fla. Subscriptions are limited and will be granted on a first come, first serve basis. As the program grows, additional solar facilities may be installed in various areas around the region.
  • Gulf Power’s Gulf Solar Energy Share program was filed with the Florida Public Service Commission in November and was approved on March 1, 2016. Construction of the solar facility will begin soon with expected completion in the fall. Reserve your subscriptions to Gulf Solar Energy Share.
