Solar water heating systems for Brevard and Orange County
Floridians see their electric bills go through the roof during July, August and September and don’t need to be told that air conditioning uses a lot of electricity. On the other hand, while you may use hardly any air conditioning during March, April and November, that big 3,500 to 4,500-watt heating element in your water heater is burning away every day of the year. (Some high-recovery models have two heating elements.) At today’s electric rates (including fuel surcharges and utility taxes) of around 14 to 15 cents per kilowatt hour, water heating can easily cost $800 to $1,200 each year for a three to five person household. In Brevard County, a solar water heater can almost completely eliminate this portion of your electric bill. Learn more about our solar water heating systems…
Solar power for your Florida home
You own your home; why rent your electricity? With a solar power system, you can generate your own energy and earn a great return on your investment, instead of giving your cash to the electric utility company. And it gets better: Any power you don’t use is automatically sent back out through your electric meter to the utility grid, and you receive a credit on your power bill.

Solar pool heating systems
A heated pool can double or even triple your comfortable swim season. The seasonal average temperatures for Brevard County pools are between 62° – 80°F. The unfortunate reality is that a screened pool is only 80°F or warmer for about three months. Screened pools near the coast and in urban surroundings will be the warmest, possibly reaching 83 – 85°F between the last week of July through the first week in September.

We practice what we preach
United Solar is one of the first Florida businesses to use the sun’s free, renewable energy to produce its own electric power. An environmentally friendly photovoltaic power array on the roof of our Merritt Island office produces clean electric energy and reduces powerplant carbon dioxide emissions. With government incentives, solar electric power systems are starting to make economic sense. Talk to us if you’re interested in learning more.
