Solar Systems For Homes & Businesses
Sunshine Solar Services Inc. is a certified distributor and installer of the Apollo II-CertainTeed line of solar tiles. We are the largest installer of solar tiles in Florida. These tiles have been around for over eight years, and we re-engineer them to our local wind codes of 180 MPH.
Sunshine Solar Services Inc. is an authorized reseller and installer for many US-made solar panels. We are one of the largest Panasonic dealers in Florida. We have yet to have a roof leak caused by a solar installation in our 10+ year history due to our flashing methods on tile, metal, shingle, and flat roofs.
Based in Fort Lauderdale, we install in 6 states and many island nations. We specialize in providing solar systems in the Hurricane zone. We are the first active PV-only company in Florida. For off-grid and grid tie in non-US territories, we partner with international island solar specialist Island Solar, Inc.
Federal Tax Credits
If you own property and pay income taxes in the United States, you may be eligible for federal tax credits on qualified solar purchases when you install a new solar system. If you use your property for business, in addition to incentives above, you may also be able to take advantage of accelerated depreciation.
Save On Costs
The combination can cut the cost of the installation in half. In hurricane zones such as Florida and the surrounding islands, on-grid solar is typically a higher investment amount than in places like California due to heightened wind and rain levels.
Even with the higher initial investment, you can still reach a return on your solar installation in 7-11 years. The panels have power production warranties for 25 years. Investing in solar energy can help you to save money and save the environment!
Power your property during grid outages, or if you are on an island, power it all the time. We offer off-grid battery primary, battery-backed grid-tie or straight grid-tie of all sizes.
We are a team of NABCEP nationally-certified installers and NABCEP nationally certified sales professionals. Our full-time staff includes an electrical engineer, a full-time civil (structural) engineer, and a third party PE. We have 100’s of designs approved for the hurricane zone.
Solar Power World Magazine has rated us in the top 500 Solar PV contractors of the USA. We are one of the oldest and independent PV companies in Florida. We worked on 100’s of South Florida homes and business PV installations. Along with our island partner Island Solar, Inc., we worked on installations in the Bahamas and Caribbean.
Panasonic hit panels have the best energy density and produce more energy per installed watt in high heat conditions than any other panel. We offer a 25-year power output warranty and a 25-year full warranty. The 25-year full warranty is only available through their top-tier installer network in which SSS is part of.
SMA inverters are the market leader and have a 10-year warranty. Each inverter includes one outlet for off-grid use when the sun is shining, and FPL is down. Good for up to 10-15 Amps EACH when the sun is strong enough to support them without batteries.
Connection to your internet connection includes monitoring your solar energy and the health of the system. All designs to local codes with vast experience in the 180MPH HVHZ area (High-velocity hurricane zone).
Many designs are installed over flat, standing seam, tile and shingle roofs. We are also the leading installer with most of the solar tile installs in the state.
For existing tile roofs, we use one of the top roofers in South FL to remove the tile in the area of the solar. We then install the supports and ensure that the roofer returns and flashes around each support with commercial roofing material and replaces the tile using the preferred foam-down method to assure a long roof life.
Compare to breaking a small hole in the roof and using some roofing tar to seal the roof. This method will leak in a couple of years, our method is good for the life of the roof.
We use one ChemCurbs, a two-part sealer with rubber curbs, to seal all roof penetrations. Pitch pans, on the other hand, require maintenance every few years, but ChemCurbs give a seal that will outlast most roofs.
We use the S-5 system re-engineered for the hurricane winds where in most cases, the system can be secured without having holes in the roof.
We use customized self-flashing support engineered to outlast the roof system. Our licensed and insured technicians will ensure that the work is complete in the schedule.
We can either work with your roofer to install integrated solar tiles or put down traditional supports during the roofing process.
