Power the Sunshine State with Solar!

When hurricanes and extreme weather threaten Florida communities, solar can help keep the lights on for families while lowering bills and growing our economy. Every Floridian should have the right to produce, store and use their own solar energy. Sign if you agree! 

Solar is the right choice for Florida for so many reasons. The price of solar has dropped more than 80 percent over the past decade, making it one of our lowest cost options. This means we can use our plentiful sunshine to help lower energy bills, clean the air that we breathe, and create local jobs. Florida is now the nation's second largest solar job creator, with more than 10,350 Floridians already working to build a brighter, more resilient energy system. Combined with battery storage and other local clean technologies, solar can also make our families and communities more resilient in the face of hurricanes and extreme weather -- and keep the power on for first responders.

But big utilities and polluting corporations are working to stand between Floridians like you and the solar power you want. Our state leaders must do more to protect solar rights and make clean energy an affordable option for all Floridians.  

Sign the petition if you agree that solar makes the Sunshine State stronger. We'll deliver your signatures to Florida lawmakers.

 

To whom it may concern: 

I'm a voter in your district, and I support solar power. The fact is: I'm part of the overwhelming majority of Floridians who agree that it's time for more solar in the Sunshine State.


I think it's important for lawmakers like you to understand how much your constituents support solar, regardless of their political affiliation. A recent poll of likely Florida voters from Conservatives for Clean Energy found that: 


* 77% think there should be more emphasis on solar, the highest of any energy source polled. That includes majorities of Republicans (58%) and Independents (85%).


* 85% think it is important to minimize red tape that makes it difficult for consumers to go solar.


* 81% support net metering policies, which ensure customers receive full credit on their utility bills when they send power to the grid for the utility to resell.


* Over three-quarters say they are more likely to vote for a candidate who supports taking action to increase the development and use of clean energy.




Solar is the right choice for Florida for so many reasons. The price of solar has dropped more than 80 percent over the past decade, making it one of our lowest cost options. This means we can use our plentiful sunshine to help lower energy bills, create local jobs, and clean the air that we breathe. Combined with battery storage and other local clean technologies, solar can also make our families and communities more resilient in the face of hurricanes and extreme weather.


I believe that every Floridian should have the right to produce, store and use their own solar energy. I hope you'll do everything in your power to clear the way for more Floridians to put this popular and powerful homegrown energy resource to work.
