A Local Company You Can Trust
Mimeos Energy’s decade of experience installing solar systems in South Florida and the Gulf means that you will find a group of passionate about renewable energy and ensuring you’re investment makes sense.
Up until very recently, solar leases were illegal in Florida. According to Green Tech Media:
Third-party-owned solar agreements, such as leases and power-purchase agreements, enable homes and businesses to go solar with little or no money down, which has been a major driver of solar growth across the nation. Shortly after South Carolina authorized third-party ownership in 2014, the state’s virtually nonexistent residential solar market started to boom.
For years Florida households could only purchase their system outright. Companies weren’t allowed to sell a viable financing option unless you had the capital to invest upfront. Until very recently (April 2018), the Florida Public Service Commission voted to allow one large solar company to sell home solar leases. Up until the petition was granted, homeowners in Florida were unable to lease solar systems due to restrictions on electricity sales from third-party providers.
These solar PPAs a.k.a leases, power-purchase agreements, and third-party-owned solar agreements, allow homes and businesses to adopt solar with little or no money down. This key finacial instrument is the catayst driver behind all of the solar growth across the nation including Florida solar
. Shortly after South Carolina authorized third-party ownership in 2014, the state’s virtually nonexistent residential solar market started to boom.
Fact is the demand for solar has increased exponentially every since Florida legalized solar. As a result Most other Florida solar installers simply don’t have the experience we bring nor attention to detail we bring to every residential or commercial job. We pride ourselves on our customer service, that’s why we’ve been around for over a decade.

Florida also known as the Sunshine State is known for is vast everglades, Disney World, world class golf tournaments, and a variety of other attractions. With comfortable warm weather year around, it should be no surprise that we get a lot of sun. Although electricity is still relatively cheap here in, the increase in extreme weather and reoccurring hurricane related outages come every summer and fall, makes the case for solar that much stronger.
Fact is most Florida solar panel co’s and contractors don’t take the extra time to help educate it’s customer’s about the various pros and cons for solar. This is especially true for battery storage, and the misconceptions surrounding it. Although yes batter storage technology has improved vastly in the past decade, we are still limited in our storage capabilities.
