All solar water heaters must be certified by the Florida Solar Energy Center in order to be sold in Florida.  Most residential homes heat water with electricity one of the most inefficient and most expensive methods.  

In considering converting to a solar collector, the Solar Energy Center provides a Solar Hot Water System Calculator to provide consumers with information on the energy, cost and environmental savings potential of residential solar hot water systems in Florida.

Given the status of rebates for solar in Florida, it is best to calculate without considerations of a potential rebate for the system.
