Senate considers bill to enable more Floridians to go solar

Last August, Florida voters resoundingly voted in favor of solar by passing Amendment 4. Amendment 4, which passed by an impressive 73-27% margin, reduces the tax burden placed on solar in Florida. This will allow more Floridians to go solar. But voting for Amendment 4 wasn’t enough. We now need the Florida legislature to pass legislation to enact the provisions of the Amendment.

Legislation has been introduced in the Senate (SB 90) to put the vote of a strong majority of Florida voters into law. The bill would eliminate personal property tax and real estate taxes on solar energy systems.

Floridians for Solar Choice has developed a script solar supporters can use to urge their senators to support these important changes and enable more solar in Florida. Click here to find contact information for your senators.

I am urging you to vote to pass SB 90 for a clean implementation of Amendment 4. Amendment 4 passed unanimously in the Legislature last session and then with 73% support of the voters in the August primary. It now needs your vote to be implemented. Thank you for listening to your constituents and supporting smart energy policy!
