Please Vote NO for Amendment One in November

In general, our Florida electric utilities have been helpful advocates promoting electric vehicle adoption in the state. However, the same can not be said for promoting solar energy when it comes to supporting policies beneficial to residential customers and small businesses.

Like the automobile dealerships fighting Tesla in selling directly to consumers, the electric utilities are spending millions to prevent small solar businesses from pursuing a free-market solution of leasing solar panels directly to consumers thereby limiting up-front costs to homeowners. 

Floridians for Solar Choice started a citizens' initiative to deregulate the solar market to allow third-party power providers to sell rooftop solar-generated power.  To confuse voters with competing Amendments, Florida's four largest electric companies created the "Consumers for Smart Solar" initiative which will appear on the November ballot as Amendment One, masquerading as a pro-solar energy initiative. 

Please take the time to read the Tampa Bay Times editorial by Paula Dockery, a syndicated columnist who served in the Florida Legislature for 16 years as a Republican from Lakeland.
