The League’s goal is to make Florida NUMBER ONE in rooftop solar.
Experts believe Florida can be among the top three solar-producing states in the country.
A new partnership has been formed: Solar United Neighbors (SUN) and LWVFL teamed up to launch Florida Solar United Neighbors. This nonprofit program helps communities learn about and affordably participate in solar via volume purchasing and competitive bidding to achieve discounts of up to 15% for average homeowners. To find out more, go to SolarUnitedNeighbors.org/Florida.
So far this partnership has launched 31 solar co-ops around Florida, with 20 more to come in 2018. In 2017 alone these solar co-ops accounted for 10% of the new residential solar in Florida! Each of these solar co-ops helps “Main Street Floridians” save tons of money by harnessing the power of the sun.
Working to address the fact that transportation now accounts for more climate warming carbon than power plants, League has launched the NextCarPledge.org. This campaign is designed to speed up the transition to cleaner, quieter and cheaper transportation, in partnership with Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE).
The Campaign Chair for making Florida #1 in Solar is is Deirdre Macnab.
