About Company

Solar Impact is Gainesville, Floridas #1 solar energy company, having installed over twice the amount of solar electricity as all other local solar contractors combined! Solar Impacts commercial, residential and non-profit clients produce enough solar electricity to power more than 600 homes and have created over $5 million in local jobs. Solar Impact is now a Tesla Powerwall Certified Installer, which means we now offer a customized solar-plus-battery storage solution that enables you to access the free, abundant power of the sun and reduces your reliance on fossil fuels.

How We Got Started

Solar Impact, Inc., was founded in 2007 by Elaine and Barry Jacobson. When considering the purchase of a solar photovoltaic (PV) system for their home, they were quoted around $50,000 for an installed 5,000 watt (5kW) solar system, which was typical for the solar industry. Given that the solar electric system would produce around $1,000 of electricity and had an expected 30-year lifespan, the solar energy system would never come close to paying for itself.  In 2009, Congress extended the solar Investment Tax Credit and eliminated the $2,000 cap that applied to residential solar systems. This brought the net cost down to around $35,000, which was considerably better, but would still barely break even over the 30-year life of the system.  Based on their experiences, they saw a need for a reasonably priced solar electric solution as well as for guidance through the entire process - decision making, purchasing, solar panel installation, solar rebates, solar incentives and tax credits. And Solar Impact was born! For the last decade, Solar Impact has been installing solar panels for the communities of Gainesville, Florida and in Ocala, Newberry, Jonesville and High Springs. 

Residential

When you put your home to work generating solar photovoltaic power, youll see immediate savings on your electric bills, and significantly reduce your carbon footprint using clean, renewable energy from the sun.

Commercial

Large-scale power users such as businesses, schools, and government agencies can take advantage of our expertise to transform rooftops and available open space into efficient, cost-saving, renewable energy power plants.

Battery Storage

 Homeowners in North Central Florida often see significant power outages from hurricanes, high winds and severe thunderstorms. Sometimes even human error can take down your grid power. To provide power in the event of an outage or grid failure many Ocala and Gainesville area homeowners are adding backup battery power to their solar panels. Enjoy the benefits of a solar energy storage system! 

Financing

When you combine advances in solar technology and with the energy savings that going solar offers, theres never been a better time to invest in solar power for your home or business. Solar financing and incentives can make your solar system installation more affordable than you think!
