Pro-Solar Amendment Approved By Florida Voters
Tuesday, Aug 30 2016
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Following is a statement from Sean Gallagher, vice president of state affairs at the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), on the wide support of Amendment 4 by Florida voters:
“The Sunshine State is finally living up to its name. This vote sends a strong signal that Florida is open for business and the well-paying jobs and economic benefits that solar provides.
“Amendment 4 removes financial barriers to smart local investment. It’s clear, Floridians want better access to affordable, clean energy options and this vote is a significant step in the right direction.
"Now it’s time to keep the momentum going. To ensure a bright solar future for Florida, customers should vote NO on Amendment 1, the anti-solar amendment that will be on Florida ballots this November."
