SunSense Solar


Important Update: Currently, 2015 is the last year that SunSense solar rebates are available. However, we encourage you to monitor the Duke Energy website for future solar updates.

Today, Duke Energy is venturing into solar power in a big way with plans to add up to 500 megawatts of utility-scale solar in Florida by 2024.

Duke Energy has been committed to the expansion of solar energy in our state for decades. Our first solar, or photovoltaic (PV), project in Florida was commissioned in 1988 to research the technology’s potential for delivering electricity directly to the grid.

To date the Duke Energy Florida’s SunSense Solar and predecessor programs, has achieved the following milestones:

  • Rebated more than 5,290 residential solar water heating systems
  • Assisted residential and commercial customers installing more than 8,700 kW of interconnected solar photovoltaic energy systems and provided more than $10.7 million in customer incentives
  • Funded more than $8 million in solar photovoltaic (PV) installations at 53 k-college schools, including 100 kW PV systems at
  • Provided 90 solar water heating systems for non-profit builders such as Habitat for Humanity
