The November election is quickly approaching and NetZeroMax is working hard to defeat Florida’s Amendment 1 . . . . the “so-called” Solar Rights amendment. Please take the time to view the attached videos that go into detail regarding the level of deception involved with the wording of this misleading amendment. It gives the noble impression of assuring that non-solar consumers will not end up subsidizing roof-top solar owners. That sounds reasonable to most who have not researched this issue.
Florida does not rank in the top 10 states for solar production. Of those top 10 solar producing states NOT ONE has demonstrated any evidence that roof-top solar results in a negative financial burden on non-solar consumers . . . NOT ONE! On the contrary, roof-top solar is a BENEFIT, not a burden to all power consumers. We don’t need deceptive and false language in the Florida constitution. Having this clause in the amendment gives the powerful power monopolies the green light to assess additional fees on roof-top solar owners in response to assuring the non-solar consumers are not financially burden (which is not true anywhere in the USA). In reality, those additional fees go right to their bottom line profits as they laugh all the way to the bank, knowing that they pulled one over on the Florida voter.
Amendment 1 will stifle solar progress to the point where Florida will have to change their motto to “The anti-Sunshine State”. Amendment 1 BLOCKS the sun in Florida. VOTE NO ON AMENDMENT 1!
