News:

The Floridians for Solar Choice Constitutional Amendment will not be on the ballot this year because not enough signatures were received.  Most agree that the creation of a rival amendment confused the public and reduced the ability of Floridians for Solar Choice to get enough signatures.  Their amendment would have removed the exclusive right of Florida’s utilities to sell electrical energy in their territories.  This guaranteed monopoly has prevented solar companies from installing systems at their own expense and then charging those customers for the energy produced.  This approach is popular in many states because it eliminates the up-front costs for these customers.  Unfortunately, it will not be brought to a vote in Florida this year.


The rival amendment from “Consumers for Smart Solar” did succeed in getting enough signatures so it will be on the November ballot.  This amendment, however, is bad for solar.  It is sponsored by many major utilities and at best it would change nothing.  At worst, it would allow utilities to block competitors or impose subsidies.  It specifically states that those who do not choose to install solar are not required to subsidize those who do.  That would theoretically allow for an end to net metering in Florida.  The amendment claims to give consumers the right to install solar, but that right already exists.  Do not support this amendment.
