The League of Women Voters of Florida wants to see Florida emerge as a national leader in solar energy production and usage, giving new meaning to its nickname The Sunshine State. Experts believe Florida can be among the top three solar-producing states in the country.
Community Power Network (CPN) and LWVFL teamed up to launch Florida Solar United Neighborhoods (FL SUN) in May 2016. This nonprofit program helps communities learn about and affordably participate in solar via volume purchasing and competitive bidding to achieve discounts of up to 25% for average participants.
This new cooperative approach will use best practices currently working in five other states, designed to help everyday citizens get significant discounts for solar energy while informing them about the potential to reduce utility bills.
The Issue Chair for Solar is Deirdre Macnab.
