Vote NO on Amendment 1


The utilities have done a great job pushing for a yes vote on Amendment 1. Why do you suppose? Most of what the amendment proposes, we already have. The big difference, obscured by confusing language, will be to prevent individuals who have solar panels from selling excess to your neighbors, tenants, or others. This amendment is cleverly composed. It will give utility companies the right to put surcharges on solar customers and limit third-party sales of solar energy homeowners and small businesses generate on their rooftops. Why do you think the Gainesville Sun, the Miami Herald, and most major newspaper editors in the state encourage a no vote? Why are the Sierra Club and other conservation and green organizations supporting a no vote?
