End the Solar Eclipse in the Sunshine State
An unlikely coalition of Tea Party groups, environmentalists, Libertarians, business leaders and more is working to ramp up solar power in Florida. The group Floridians for Solar Choice is trying to put an initiative on the 2016 ballot to allow people to generate their own solar power, and then sell it directly to other consumers.
Floridians for Solar Choice is a grassroots citizens’ effort to allow more homes and businesses to generate electricity by harnessing the power of the sun. Currently, Florida is one of only five states in the nation that prohibit citizens from buying electricity from companies that will put solar panels on your home or business. This prohibition limits customer choice and blocks the growth of this abundant, clean homegrown energy source. The choice to harness solar power should be available to everyone.
Southern Alliance for Clean Energy
The (SACE) is a non-profit, nonpartisan energy watchdog group based in the Southeastern United States (Mississippi, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Georgia).
Southern Alliance for Clean Energy Action Fund (SACE Action Fund), the political arm of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE), is a non-partisan, non-profit (c4) organization striving to make clean energy solutions to climate change a top priority for our region’s elected leaders. SACE Action Fund engages in public education, legislative action and electoral accountability here in the Southeast.
There is an urgent need to address climate change impacts and unlock untapped renewable energy resources to create new jobs, energy stability and reduce pollution. Even though the elections of 2014 sent more opponents of climate action to Washington and to our state capitols, the majority of Americans believe that climate change is real and that humans are causing it, and they support clean energy solutions in overwhelming numbers.
