Solar power is on the ballot on August 30th

There is a constitutional amendment on the August 30, 2016 ballot that will facilitate the public’s ability to get solar power for their homes.  It’s called Amendment 4, and it seeks to break the monopoly that the electric companies have in Florida and let people generate their own electricity at home.

Those electric companies – Duke Energy, Gulf Power, Florida Power and Light (FPL) and Tampa Electric (TECO) – have been using campaign contributions and intense lobbying to keep solar choice away from Floridians for years.  You can go to this website to read all about it:  http://fcir.org/2015/04/03/in-sunshine-state-big-energy-blocks-solar-power/

Please vote YES for Amendment 4 in August.

The electric companies have started their own counter-amendment, cleverly disguised to sound pro-solar, but it actually seeks to maintain the monopoly.  That will be on the ballot in November.

Please vote NO for Amendment 1 in November.
