We Did It! Amendment 4 Passed!
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
The votes are in. Amendment 4 passed with the vast majority of Floridians across the state voting YES to support solar power in the Sunshine State (at 73% vs. 27% margin, the measure needs 60% to win)! The victory would not have been possible without the effort of thousands of volunteers and organizations throughout Florida that worked tirelessly to get the necessary votes. Thank you for all of your dedication and support.
This is a huge step to usher the Sunshine State from being blocked
into the Solar Energy Age and on the way in becoming a leader in the solar industry!
Amendment 4 will help Floridians to lower energy costs by reducing the tax burden for solar equipment. With lower taxes for homeowners and businesses, more solar energy development is anticipated for Floridians to lock in energy savings, create jobs, spur economic development, and bring much needed diversity to Florida’s energy mix!
This is just the beginning of opening up Solar in the Sunshine State! If you are interested in supporting good solar policy and defend against anti-solar attacks in the future, click here to request a vote-by-mail ballot this November-become a Florida Solar Voter today.
Now, Floridians, please remember to Vote “No” for Amendment 1 on November 8 because it’s a Trojan Horse that the utility companies are using to block further solar development. More on Amendment 1 in a future post.
