    Hey how can i get in contact with you. I am in Pasco and also on Withlacocchee and was thinking of doing my own install. The costs here are easily 25k for a 7KW system. I have worked on roofs most of my life helping friends and have all the tools necessary to do my own. I also was thinking of pulling my own permit in Pasco as well. I can help you if you need .

    I'm actually South of Tampa in Riverview.

      Every dollar you spend on upgrading like energy efficiency appliances, HVAC, Insulation, Windows, and Doors will save you $2 in RE installation cost. Not only that has immediate positive net gain on your home. Solar in FL is likely to have negative net equity gain.

      At 70 Kwh/day you either have a very large luxury home, or one in need of energy upgrading.
      I have not installed solar yet, I'm waiting to install a new roof 1st.

        Let me know guys. I have Duke in pasco and am looking. If i can't do it myself I am not going forward. My neighbor across the street just got a quote for a new breaker box 200amp. Lowest bid was $2500 highest $5000 and the contractor had the balls to tell him be done in one day. When I told him parts were probably less than $300 he was not happy. I really don't trust many people touching my house, my less getting bids when the contractor is used to dealing with older people who don't have a clue

          I'm in Hillsborough county and was able to do 100% of the work as a homeowner. Go down to your local permitting office and ask if you can pull a homeowners permit.
          I agree with you if I couldn't have done this project myself I wouldn't have. Personally I can't justify what contractors are charging to go solar. I know someone who recently got a quote on a 15kw system for $48k and a buddy who had a 9kw system installed for 28k. I'm an industrial electrician and was not impressed with my buddy's install, conduit work looked like a 1st year apprentice did it.
          I installed my 14kw 39 LG 365W panels with Enphase mico inverters for $16,888 ($11,821 after the tax break)
          I went online 10-16-18 and have been keeping track to the penny what it's producing. As of 1-15-19 it's reduced my bill $661.53, at this rate it should pay for itself in 4-5 years.
          Let us know what you find out, I'm curious what the rules are in Pasco.
