The votes are in and Amendment 4 passed by a wide margin. Floridians across the state voted YES to support solar power in the Sunshine State!.

This victory would not have been possible without the efforts of thousands of volunteers and organizations throughout Florida that worked tirelessly to get out the vote. We can’t thank you enough for your dedication and support. 

This is a huge step to help the Sunshine State out of the darkness to become a leader in the solar industry. Once enacted by the state legislature, Amendment 4 will help Floridians lower energy costs by reducing the tax burden that currently exists for solar equipment. With lower taxes for homeowners and businesses, we will see more solar energy development enabling Floridians to lock in energy savings, create jobs, spur economic development, and bring much-needed diversity to our state’s energy mix! 

This is just the beginning of opening up solar in the Sunshine State. We must continue to boost the pro-solar voter turnout in future elections to support good solar policy and defend against anti-solar attacks.
