I have looked and haven't found anything, so I'm curious if anyone has found anything on this. If not the car, what about charging installation for the car?

Come on Florida get with the times!! :)

have you tried the google?
Plug in America gives a summary of what each state offers

  • FPL currently does not offer specific EV charging rates.
  • No emissions testing required for registration.
  • Some commercial and public buildings offer parking for PEV customers only.
  • FL Insurance companies may offer discounts on PEVs.


and here's a site that has more detailed info on each state's incentives (but check to see if still current/valid for your area):
Florida

All-Electric Vehicle Rebate: Duke Energy and Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC) customers and employees are eligible for a $10,000 rebate for the purchase of a new 2017 Nissan Leaf at participating dealerships. Rebates were available through June 30, 2017, or until funds are exhausted.
Authorization for Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Incentives: Local governments may use income from the infrastructure surtax to provide loans, grants, or rebates to residential or commercial property owners to install EVSE as well as liquefied petroleum gas (propane), compressed natural gas, and liquefied natural gas fueling infrastructure, if a local government ordinance authorizing this use is approved by referendum.
Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Financing: Property owners may apply to their local government for funding to help finance EVSE installations on their property or enter into a financing agreement with the local government for the same purpose.
HOV Lane Exemption: Qualified alternative fuel vehicles (Inherently Low Emission Vehicle or Hybrid electric Vehicle) may use designated HOV lanes regardless of the number of occupants in the vehicle. The vehicle must display a Florida Division of Motor Vehicles issued decal, which is renewed annually. Vehicles with decals may also use any HOV lane designated as a HOV toll lane without paying the toll. This exemption expires Sept. 30, 2019.
PEV Rebate: Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA) offers rebates for PEVs with a battery less than 15 kilowatt-hours (kWh) in capacity to receive $500, and PEVs with larger battery capacity are eligible for $1,000. A copy of a valid Florida vehicle registration, proof of sale, and a recent JEA Electric bill are required.

You won't have to dig very deep to find a big fat nothing! Until the political climate in Florida changes, support for EV's, solar etc. will remain in the gutter.

Look no further than the craziness with FPL trying to trick local voters with an expensive ad campaign that almost worked.

I think that JEA is just not up to speed, there is no reason not to offer the credits for a model 3. I would try to move up the chain at JEA and "educate" them
