Exciting news! Florida now leads the nation in the growth of residential solar permits, with 110% increased growth in the past year. 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 to make this happen. Community Power Network (CPN) 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 participants. To find out more, go to SolarUnitedNeighbors.org/Florida.

By the end of 2017, SUN of FL will have launched 21 neighborhood cooperatives to help “Main Street Florida” reduce their utility bills by harnessing the power of the sun.

And, just out, working with Southern Alliance For Clean Energy (SACE), The League has launched the NEXT CAR PLEDGE, a nationwide neighbor to neighbor campaign to speed up the purchase of cleaner, more affordable transportation.

The Campaign Chair for making Florida #1 in Solar is is Deirdre Macnab.
