Floridians for Solar Choice Renews Ballot Initiative with $420,000 Contribution

0
Floridians for Solar Choice (FSC) Chairman Tory Perfetti reported a $420,000 contribution in December 2021, kicking off a bid to change the Florida Constitution in order to protect the right of Floridians to utilize the sun to generate, collect, and sell solar power. Floridians for Solar Choice is organizing a massive statewide effort to collect the required petitions to get the initiative on the ballot. The language has already passed the Florida Supreme Court’s review.

FSC Chairman Perfetti said, “Floridians should have the ability to choose from multiple sources of energy to power their homes and businesses. This amendment will allow greater options for citizens and business owners in Florida to participate in their energy future without mandates or subsidies. The Floridians for Solar Choice Coalition is a broad coalition representative of the citizens of Florida that will be working towards the goal of allowing all of us a vote on our shared energy future.”

Dr. Stephen A. Smith, FSC Board member and Executive Director of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, added, “We’ve been motivated by Governor DeSantis’ call for a free state of Florida and our desire for Florida to be a leader in both clean and alternative energy. The sunshine state should harness the power of the sun and that power should not be monopolized by any one group, company, or organization. We believe no one owns the sun in the sunshine state.”

In order to get the measure on the ballot, Floridians for Solar Choice will need to collect 891,589 signatures in 24 months starting February 2, 2022. In 2015, FSC collected almost 300,000 signatures but those have since expired. The goal is for the measure to make the 2024 ballot.

Beginning on February 2, 2022, people can begin downloading the amendment petition form to sign and mail back to 1700 N. Monroe Street, Suite 11-144, Tallahassee, FL 32303.
