End the Solar Eclipse in the Sunshine State
Floridians for Solar Choice is a grassroots effort working to help more homes and businesses generate electricity by harnessing the power of the sun. Our coalition is working for good solar policy in Florida, including a constitutional amendment that would give Florida’s families and businesses the right to choose solar power, as well as fighting for fair policy development in the legislature. Learn more about volunteering and help us to:
1. Spread the word on Amendment 4; Urge people to vote YES on August 30th! As a result of our collective efforts, lawmakers and other coalition partners helped place a solar tax abatement amendment on Florida’s 2016 Primary Election ballot. This initiative would remove a barrier to solar by exempting the panels and other renewable energy equipment from property taxes for 20 years. If passed in August, this policy will lower the cost of solar, increase clean energy jobs, and greatly expand solar development across the state! Click HERE to learn more.
2. Say NO to the utility-backed ‘solar’ petition this fall: Amendment 1 is an effort by big monopoly utilities to choke-off rooftop solar and keep a stranglehold on customers by preventing them from generating their own power. In March, the Supreme Court narrowly ruled 4-3 to allow the utility-backed petition on to the November ballot. The utilities may have more money, but they are on the wrong side of this issue. Read more about this deceptive ballot here. We need you to fight alongside us and urge your friends, family and neighbor: Vote NO in NOvember!
3. Collect Solar Choice petitions! We are exploring the option to place the Solar Choice amendment on the 2018 ballot and continue to gather signatures. Every signed petition is valid for 24 months from the date that it is signed, so we encourage you to continue collecting petitions and sending them in. Remember – every petition signed represents another Floridian who wants access to affordable solar power. This is an incredibly powerful message to legislators as we continue the fight to advance good solar policy in our state. Download, sign and mail in the petition.
4. Donate! All of these tasks require funding. We depend on your support!
