Summary

Until 1994, Florida offered limited specialty licenses for residential solar hot water and pool heating, as well a general solar contractor's license. These specialty licenses have not been issued since that time, although people holding these licenses may renew them.

The new solar contractor license defines a broader scope of work. With the new license, solar contractors have the authority to install, maintain and repair solar hot water systems, solar pool heating systems and photovoltaic systems in residential, commercial and industrial facilities for compensation. To qualify for a license, installers must have four years of experience, which may include both installation and education and at least one year of experience must be in a supervisory role. An individual must also pass an examination to become certified as a solar contractor. More information about licensing qualifications can be found on the Florida Solar Energy Industries Association web site.
