Solar Conundrum: What you need to know before installing panels

With Florida's insurance market still in flux, some companies are becoming even more risk-averse. Experts in the field told ABC Action News reporter Michael Paluska that solar panels are coming under increased scrutiny. Depending on your carrier, solar panels might lead to dropped coverage and an increase in your premium or exclude different coverages like wind. "We use probably two and a half times the amount of electricity as a normal home does," homeowner Alex Jandick said. "We have two electric vehicles, we keep the AC at 72 in summer. I love a nice cold house. I love driving my electric cars. So, we do it a little bit differently than the average household. But we're still saving a considerable amount of money with the solar each month compared to what it would be just paying Duke all the money for the energy."
