To: Florida Governor Rick Scott

Legalize Solar Panels

Petition Text

Legalize residential rooftop solar panels in all of Florida.

Why is this important?

Florida advertises itself as the Sunshine State; but, power company executives and regulators have worked successfully to keep most Floridians from using that sunshine to generate their own power. Typical business models, like leasing, plus tax rebates, have made solar systems affordable for millions of homeowners around the country. These practices are largely illegal in Florida.

Agencies like JEA have a monopoly on electricity and are gouging rate-payers.

Please sign the petition and urge the governor to introduce legislation that would make leasing solar panels legal in Florida and allow residents to sell back any excess power the systems generate on their homes any other properties.

Florida, United States
